    On line predators...

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,267871,00.html

    These unsuccessful attempts led to grown men arriving at their home vying for her teenager daughter’s attention, and even death threats when Julie’s dad explicitly told one user not to call. But it only got worse …

    Her Dad should have taken physical action. If this was my daughter, these men would have been greeted at the door with a two barrel
    And, my daughter would've been without access to a computer long before it went this far.

    Aside from McDonald’s culpability, Jane Doe blames their living nightmare in part on Quest Personals and wants to hold them responsible. I can only imagine that as a mother, she felt helpless and powerless against a system that would not heed her warnings.
    Everyone else's fault. Why should a parent be responsible for their child?

    Towards the end of the article on a similar case..

    U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks said that MySpace had “no duty to protect” a minor from sexual predators “nor institute reasonable safety measures on its Web site. If anyone had a duty to protect [the minor] it was her parents, not MySpace.”
    Exactly. If all else fails (assuming it was ever tried) then

    It is amazing to me that no matter how many shows are broadcast on tv , and replayed each week, that every place they go nets so many predators , some of those guys are extra , creepy for lack of better word .. Not to mention the amount who are alleged teachers . No wonder so many are turning to home schooling .

    I also think for a certain type/group of parents, the internet became a babysitter for them and they couldnt care less as long as child is quiet and not bothering them . Those types never take responsibility .

    About the time this country became so lawsuit happy was when all self-blame went out the window. The two just go hand in hand. "Well its not my fault for anything if I can sue them and win". And as long as judges and juries continue to allow these frivolous lawsuits to continue, so will the "its not my fault" mind set.
