MySpace Madness

I knew it was only a matter of time that some idiot on MySpace would find some way to sue for something they could have prevented in the first place. Not the first case of this, but a 14-year old is suing MySpace for 30 mill because she was sexually harassed by another user. How did this sexual harassment occur you ask? This 14-year old was "tricked" into giving another MySpace user her home address and phone number to someone she never met - other than online.

Don't misunderstand me - I hate MySpace. I think it's a haven for pedophiles looking for some poor kid who posts a little too much information about themselves and takes advantage of that. But is that MySpace's fault? Hell no. It's not like MySpace searched known pedophiles online and then provided them with this 14-year old's number.

The only good that will come out of all this publicity is that maybe parents and kids will get just a tad smarter on what info is safe to put online.

Please... Haven? MySpace epodemic is about as big of a problem as shark attacks and crystle meth are. Media just picked up on something and ran with it "educating" all the dumb asses that know nothing about it. Out of the MILLIONS of Myspace users...How many are "victims?"

I just signed up today!

I was unaware that any website had a terms of service that included figurative helmets for the retarded.

I hope myspace turns around and sues the parents for providing their offspring with the intelligence of cooked celery.
