In unrelated news, teenchat.com has seen a 600% increase in new accounts from 40 year old males in the last 48 hours...

Uh-huh.

We can't release the information, but we're Really Really Doing Something Useful so we don't look like chumps that protect child predators. See, look! We said we deleted some accounts!

Great. Now the only ones left are the FBI.

It's a friend, when I am not around. Or should that be, "When I is not around."

What about TOM ?????????
 
2007-05-16 07:20:17 PM  
If these people are such a danger to our society, put them back in jail. Otherwise, leave them the f|_|ck alone.
 
2007-05-16 07:21:30 PM  
Would someone please tell me how this filter would work? I mean... how stupid must a predator be to use a non-throw away email? How stupid to use their actual name or more accurate of an address than their zip code?
If they wanted to contact underagers, wouldn't they just lie about their own age?

How is any of this crap helping anybody?
Or is it just more feel-good bullshiat that doesn't actually do anyone any good?
Humanity as a whole makes me sick.

I drove 200 miles to get here but I swear I wasn't going to have sex with a young girl. Condoms in my pocket?, I always carry protection. 48 year old man with a myspace profile? Ok, you got me. Where do I sit. Ooh cookies!
 
2007-05-16 07:25:37 PM  
Except that everyone on MySpace is "in your extended network."


How do I know this? Simple. Even before I (the only one to use this computer) had an account, it would say "(Name) is in your extended network." for absolutely every profile that I looked at.

/I'm in ur extended network, makin fun of ur layout.

What are you doing here? you added her to your "ILuvAnal" MySpace group didn't you? You brought wine coolers and Trojans and you were just going to talk to her?

daas_boot: I had a 43 year old man send me a plane ticket once. NO, I DIDN'T GO.

Jeez. Once, on Bravejournal (blog service run by Bravenet), I had a 49 year old guy IM me several times, and then send me something that I'm 99% sure was porn, but I didn't click on it. The guy's profile said he was "married fut still looking."

How can I have 3 friends if my account suddenly disappeared?

For some reason, I can't log into Myspace. WTF!?

2007-05-16 07:43:49 PM  
They use their real names?

Weird....
 
2007-05-16 07:45:05 PM  
Myspace has always required a valid email. It takes literally seconds to setup a Yahoo account that you will use only once.
 
2007-05-16 07:45:15 PM  
So now it is illegal for a sex offender (which is not always a child predator) to have anything to do with anything that may have children?

I don't understand.

No, it has nothing to do with laws. It's just Myspace (parent company) attempting to please the stupid masses by being able to say "we're doing something to save teh childrens!" and thus make the stupid masses shut the hell up about how evil their website is and how its only function is to exploit children.

However, on a different subject; various states have lost sight of the fact that "urinating in public" can get you on the national sex offender registry and linking "sex offender registry" with "convicted child rapist" in the rest of their laws.
In some places its so bad that people who did nothing more than streak at a party by the lake are being thrown out of their homes because those homes are too near a school and sex offenders are not allowed to live within a certain radius of the school.

Now I have no love for pedophiles, especially the ones who have actually acted on their impulses. However I'm getting tired of the baby being thrown out with the bathwater and really wish that people would start trying to fix the problem rather than throw around words and useless laws and actions that DO NOTHING to lower the numbers of victims for the crimes they're so concerned with.

/Rant-tastic!

That explains the red X "This profile no longer exists" crap on my friends list.
 
2007-05-16 07:54:16 PM  
I got banned from Megan's Law website. They said my profile was obscene.
 
2007-05-16 07:54:54 PM  
Good for them, take down the scumbags any way possible.

Hey! You're peeing on my only friend!
 
2007-05-16 07:57:10 PM  
Jeez, daas_boot, I can't even get you to meet for drinks and you're all out gettin ur dirty old men on.

What if a 32 year old man sent you a plane ticket?

/just curious

did somebody say throwaway mail?

2007-05-16 07:57:25 PM  
So what's to stop someone from saying they're 16 as opposed to 48? It's easy to talk like a teenager nowadays:

"Who are you texting 50 times a day?"
"IDK, my BFF Jill?"
 
2007-05-16 07:59:30 PM  
I'm confused. Who's the dude who is getting pissed on?
 
2007-05-16 08:22:25 PM  
what's to stop the sex offenders from just creating a BS anonymous email account and just setting up another profile on myspace?

Who would've thought that the biggest public repository of child porn on the internet would be populated and maintained entirely by children...

2007-05-16 08:30:33 PM  
I was wondering why I couldn't log into myspace today.
 
2007-05-16 08:36:39 PM  
If you're 14 and you lie about your age and some 20yo hits on you then you need to STFU - you lied. Had you put your age down and you were "restricted" to kids your age then things would be different.

That made no sense, just don't use that crap.
