NewsThe Achilles Heel of OAuth or Why Facebook Adds #_=_ Pin

Most of our OAuth hacks pwn the Provider and its users (only the most-common vulnerability pwns the Client's authentication). This makes me really curious what the hell is wrong with Facebook and why don't they care about their own Graph security and their own users. Why do they allow a flexible redirect_uri, opening an enormous attack surface (their own domain + client's app domain)? We simply play Find-Chain-Of-302-Redirects, Find-XSS-On-Client and Leak-Credentials-Then-Find-Leaking-Redirect_uri games. Don't they understand it is clearly their business to protect themselves from non ideal clients?
Is OAuth short for "Oh no! They just broke my Authentication"?
