MySpace is trying to make itself safe for kids but it’s a waste of time and effort. Don’t be fooled – there is no reliable way to keep human trash from trolling for underage victims given the current state of the Net.
Do we really want to eliminate that sort of behavior? Sure, but at what cost? Doing so means the Feds mandating the use of biometric IDs to access the Net. And that, of course, would be the absolute end of what remains of our privacy.
How about just limiting your kids’ access? It’s a bit of a battle – they’re sneaky – but hardly impossible.
