    To be honest we live in a world of freaks and creeps. But I say we cant go and blame myspace for not doing anything. Its free and is open to anyone who wants to use it. I say if the damn kid meets random people its the parent fault and not myspace. So all in all we live in a nation of freedom and if we go blaming Myspace for this then we are just encouraging the goverment to place more ristrictions on our so called Nation of freedom which is far from. I mean god one get violated when you dont pay a traffic ticked and you go to prison you get your but checked I mean isnt that rape LOL my 2 cents I just dont like the gov getting to involved in our personal lives.

    Meh...its not like this is anything new to people...most kids/teenagers these days are complete idiots, and most 40 year old perverts are smarter then them. I have to agree with wafflesomd, I wish myspace didn't exist. I get tired of people saying "You gotta see this, its on my myspace" or complaining "Why am I not in your top ten!" It makes me want to just walk over to them and slap them for caring so much about something so pathetic. Enough of my myspace rant, if you give out too much information, people will use it against you, end of story. Parents need to pay more attention to what kids do, or teach them better. I'm not stupid enough to do stuff like that, but I know plenty of people who would be.

    Oh my that guy lives about 30 mins away from me... :worried:

    As for the whole Myspace-hideout for predators... ehhh You know what, find something else to amp up.

    I'm tired of this ****, seriously. If the kid goes to the mall or any other public places he will meet people. People that are good and people that are bad. Yes I agree, by pretending to be someone else predators can gain much more info through web sites like myspace. Either way people need to stop whining. Especially here in US. Acknowledge your fu***ing responsibilities. Teach your children not to listen loud music with headphones and not to be careful online. Just like you tough them not to get into cars with strangers.

    It's not Myspace's fault that your kid is posting everything about him/herself there. Just like it is not Apple's fault that some people pump the volume up.

    Believe it or not the law enforcers work damn hard to catch and put away paedophiles. Actual possession of images usually ends in a jail term (providing intent to possess can be proven), the length of which depends on quantity and other charges (distribution, active creation, incitement etc).

    However, these operations and subsequent investigations/hearings/trials can take a while to come to conclusion, so the general public won't see 'results' for a year or so. That often leads to the feeling that law enforcement aren't doing anything, which is far from true.

    I completely agree that a lot of parents need to be more active in 'policing' their children, but everyone can help. If you see something dodgy on Myspace, or other such websites, report it to admins. If the admins find something illegal is happening, they are duty-bound to report it to the authorities.
