Who needs 600 friends when you're a bride of Christ?

The Register says "A Spanish nun has been kicked out of her closed religious order after clocking up 600 friends on Facebook. After 35 years closeted at the 700-year-old Santa Domingo el Real convent in Toledo, Maria Jesus Galan is back living with her mum, and has declared she rather fancies visiting New York and London".

IMO: As someone who does not use Facebook, I sympathise with the Dominicans, for once. But are we to see a "banned" list of internet sites and maybe even some kind of international Catholic firewall ? It does not sound a good idea. It could maybe suit a Westboro Baptist style. But in fact the Archbishop of Toledo called the fracas "an internal matter".
