    That's old - I alway get that one when I sign in with any accounts (even my private) on locations/ip's I have not used to log in with the account before.

    Idont know exactly how new this is but IP tracking is not new. Back in February I made some 75 accounts, during one when I first got to my profile page there in the upper right hand corner was a suggestion to be friends with an account I had just created. They figured I was in the same area, so I might know her, in a way it was funny. Odds are like zilch that it was by chance.

    This isn't new. its was there almost 1-2 months already . I am encountering such filters though it doesn't really harm.
