No logout for me?

I've certainly used the "View As" feature in the last year and wasn't logged out by Facebook.

If I get a postcard telling me I was part of the class, I will write 2 letters. One to remove myself from the class and the 2nd to the judge (both addresses will be included on the card) urging him or her to throw this out. Everyone's either been hacked or will get hacked. It's impossible to secure everything all the time. It's absurd to give a few lawyers millions of dollars and destroy a big company that employs thousands just to give 100 million users probably the equivalent of $5 each.
