Seems that there are some 29,000 sex offenders of various sorts on Myspace.com. Since that site tends towards the younger generation then you can bet that it is a playground for groomers and molesters.

Makes me wonder if other sites that involve social interaction don't have similar dark undersides. It seems that social network sites have gotten themselves a reputation for the creeps and perverts to hang around.

29,000 out of well over 100 million is less than 0.03 percent.

I think the secret is educating the small proportion of kids who don't already fully understand the dangers, on how to use sites like that rather than blanket bans.

It's a good thing social interaction is kept to a minimum here.

Thank God for our 'all posters must be over 25 years old' rule.
