    See where Sexual predaters are near you and what happens on My Space & more Dr Phil

    I was watching Dr. Phil I saw this and had to share. It was about Sexual predators. This just makes me sick how people can be.

    Also they talked about my space and how older people talk to younger kids and teenagers.

    Re: See where Sexual predaters are near you and what happens on My Space & more Dr Phil

    i'm sorry but i just think the dr phil/myspace thing was completely absurd. i'm not saying myspace is just some safe and happy place, but did you pay attention to the fake profile they made? the girls screenname was "miss not so innocent" and every picture she posted was sexual. and then they were shocked that older men messaged her with questionable comments?

    also, the mother that made a myspace account to follow her boys.. while i think its absolutely awesome that she wanted to watch out for her kids, i think she did push things a little far. that was an insane invasion of their privacy, and its just frigging *CREEPY* that she took things so far that her son asked her on a date.

    Myspace is evil! Myspace is evil! The sky is falling!

    Whatever. I'm getting pretty sick of hearing the same fear tactics every single day. Myspace is no more dangerous than Livejournal, Instant messenger services or any other message board such as our own Micechat. The key is to use it responsibly. Yes, it is good for parents to be aware of the potential dangers lurking online, but making one website out to be the spawn of hades doesn't really help the true problem.

    Instead of simply picking sites like myspace and declaring on the news every night how bad they are, we should be educating people (parents and children) on how to conduct themselves in the online world so that they don't become victims of predators of all types who are trying to take advantage of the average citizen. Shutting down individual sites will simply lead to new, potentially worse ones taking their place.

    Re: See where Sexual predaters are near you and what happens on My Space & more Dr Phil

    I think all this "online preditor" stuff really hurts all websites as a whole because now many people think that everyone online is not trust worthy and are possibly murderous predators. I mean there is no doubt that we have to pay attention to who we talk to on the internet, but chances are that most people who chat on the net are average people who mean to do no harm.

    I am so with you on everyone on the net is not a bad person. I do think children do need to be monitored while on line.

    I also think that the web site I posted in here can show you how many predators live by you. I do think its good to know how close you are to one. There are some reason why I feel so strongly about this. I do not want people to be paranoid I just want them to be aware.

    Re: See where Sexual predaters are near you and what happens on My Space & more Dr Phil

    I agree that children should be monitored too when it comes to that.




    I am kinda curious though. Does anyone happen to have statistics one the groups most like to be targets for sexual preditors on sites such as Myspace? I am think that a majority of the targets for preditors will be kids, the second target would be lonely yound females, and then the least likely target of sexual preditors would be adult males. Does anyone else know?

    I am happy to hear that Myspace is working hard to get rid of child preditors on their site though.

    Look at Mice Chat for example, I doubt anyone here is a bad person who would want to hurt each other, and if there is a bad person the Mods will take care of them quickly. Plus here on MC we are so comfortable with each other that we meet up in groups at Disneyland, we have probably exchanged phone numbers with other MCers, we feel safe when it comes to telling each other our personal stories, We call many other chatters by their first names, heck we even post pictures of ourselves without worries, etc.

    I have full trust in Mice Chat that we are safe here because I know the Moderators and Dusty and MM keep a good watchful eye over all the posters.

    As for the site you posted Crazy Legs, I thank God for John Walsh. You can't say it any better than Larry King when he said that John Walsh is a true American hero and a good role model. He turned the kidnapping and death of his son into a positive and made a successful movie about his son that made the public more aware of child predators and has a huge hit show on Fox television that will probably now never end. When the show was about to get axed by Fox, the viewers said no way and Americas Most Wanted quickly came back to television being the first show to be cancelled and then brought back to live thanks to dedicated viewers.

    Now John has went into doing better things for us such as hellping pass Child protection laws in congress and creating that Watchdog website.

    When will we have a day in honor of John Walsh?

    Re: See where Sexual predaters are near you and what happens on My Space & more Dr Ph

    I don't like all these new news specials that are trying to teach parents how to parent. I think its a bunch of BS when they tell parents "Learn your kids' passwords and check thier account after they go online!" I dunno it just seems like a big invasion of privacy... kind of like the Patriot Act, old and new, and the current administration.. but thats a different story. It just seems like in today's world everyone just HAS to know what everyone else is doing. Why can't everyone be happy? =)
