Nice post; every time I see something like this I remember all the careless people who have no idea what sort of wolves and hawks they're involved with in this whole internet thing.
Own edit: the information they're providing on those lists can technically just be captured by a bot that searches for public profiles and records the necessary data. All that's needed is to provide the bot with a Facebook account and it can run a passive name-dictionary search on Facebook's search engine and check on every given profile for the existence of the data. If so, then record first name, last name, e-mail address, and URL captured at (ID's are still extract-able from most FB account URL's). Tempting to program a bot real quick and see if Facebook blocks such behavior on its search engines (then I'd probably do a random hop algorithm, - maybe even slow down search speed and leave it on for a few hours).
