People still use Friendster?

I was surfing the news and I came across this article:

Newscaster and actress among 26 busted at sex partyBy RASHITHA A. HAMID and M. KUMAR
KUALA LUMPUR: A noted female newscaster and an actress were among 26 people caught in a sex party at a hotel in Jalan P. Ramlee here early yesterday morning.
The women also tested positive for drugs, sources said.
As of 10pm yesterday, they were still being detained at the police headquarters along with the others. Their ages range from 18 to 31.
Apparently, the 22-year-old newscaster is engaged and is due to be married next week. She has been reading news for a private television station for about a year.
The 25-year-old actress has apparently played a role in a movie made by a famous director.
Sources said the duo had earlier partied away at a 2009 countdown celebration in Mont Kiara.
Later, along with some other acquaintances, they proceeded to the four-star hotel to attend the sexual escapade.
Sources said a team of police from the city headquarters busted the private sex party some 30 minutes after it began at about 3am.
“When police arrived, many of the party goers were already high on drugs.
“There were also three couples lying on beds, but they were clothed,” added the sources.
Police found various types of drugs including ketamine, cocaine and syabu in the 11th floor room.
Beer and other liquor bottles were also lying everywhere.
Police believe the drug supplier was a 20-year-old male student from a private college.
Sources said police believe the party-goers knew one another via Friendster.
It was also through the online social network that the alleged sex party was organised.
City CID chief Senior Asst Comm (II) Ku Chin Wah confirmed the arrests.

I think what was most surprising about the article was that they got together through Friendster. I still maintain my Friendster account but I hardly used it. The only few times I log in to delete spam messages. Everyone uses facebook these days. I didn't know Friendster was still active in Malaysia.

Anyway, the news just broke out today so in a few days time people will probably know who the 'newscaster' and 'actress' are. I hope they have a good excuse. Personally, I think if you want to do party go ahead, just don't get caught. Ultimate embarassment.

If nobody's having sex, why is it called a 'sex party'?!

I think they were about to have sex but got caught before they could. They were only partying for an hour or so before the place got busted.

Frankly speaking, it's none of anyone's business who's having sex with whom, and in which combination. And the ones who are constantly doing the 'catching' (trying to catch people in the act), are probably not getting any themselves. :)

Surely the police should have better things to do than perve at half naked people.

I agree, who they have sex with is none of the police's business. However, drug use is illegal in Malaysia.

If it was a bunch of non-muslims fornicating away I don't think they could do much.
