• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Because the parents allow it to happen.

Be the parent, be in control. I was always told they brought me into this World, and they could take me out.

A someone who has had to deal with this, if a minor uses myspace pretty heavily it's one tool, so to say, to track down runaways.

That's the *only* thing about that's maybe even slightly useful.

It's a giant hole for such as that Hearse trojan and it's camouflaging rootkit which, one of three, has been funneling individual's personal data to crackers (not hackers) in Russia. That was written up in a financial magazine even.

Forget the url, but there's someone who started a similar web site or service, but the focus is on 'safety.' Not putting out anything and everything about your life and personal info.

So, will online socializing include instant messaging programs at some point in time? Ah, all those poor web cams and cyber sex little chatters being 'spied' on...

Thank you! Isn't that the truth! Today's parents think it's everyone else's job to keep their kids out of trouble! :roll:

It's like saying... "My kid is so uninformed that he might walk out in front of moving traffic, so everyone needs to stop driving cars now!"

No different than kids can smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol, do drugs, watch porno, have sex, steal a car, rob a party store, kill people...all without any parents consent!

So what you are saying is that kids can get on myspace because their parents don't watch what they do, take any preventive action, or have any control over their behavior.

I was so deprived when I was a kid.

The only way we could meet strange chicks was to talk between the busy signals on the phone.
I think that is what caused me to stutter for awhile.

Once I got their phone # I turned into a "Silver tongued devil" :p

That woman is nuts!

Car wrecks killed on average 40,000 people per year from 1986-2002 so lets blame GMC or Ford. :roll:

What the heck does she expect social networking sites such as Myspace.com to do? with over 84 million members, is the federal gov't going to fund a 'myspace police' force to investigate every person on the site and make sure they aren't child molesters, murders, etc?

Myspace is a predators' paradise, the kiddies are so gullable without parental guidance.
(Wringing hands, drooling with crazed look on face.)

"I used a CB to talk to girls at night when I was a kid."

I had FAR better luck with horny housewives during the day while hubby was at work.

a few things to be done...

1. put the PC somewhere that the child can be monitored
2. explain to the child what can happen if they go places and do certain things
3. filter software on the child's PC.

in my case, the PC is in her bedroom BUT...
1. there is filtering software on it
2. there is a proxy server she goes though and she knows I can monitor it
3. her PC's MAC is blocked at the router in case she figured out how to disable the proxy setting
4. places like myspace at the router in case the proxy and software on PC fail to catch them

What is so controversial about that site? Just because me and just about every other teenager in the entire country has a profile on that site and we like to tell people about ourselves, what is so bad about that?

Sure, that one girl in Arkansas got killed by some creep that she met on MySpace not too long ago, but she was the one who was dumb enough to accept his friend request.

If me or any of my friends get some random friend request, we'll ask each other if they know who it is, and if we don't know them, we press the DENY button in the "____ wants to be your friend!" box. It's that simple.

The NSA, FCC, or whoever it is needs to make some kind of task force to do stings as they pose as some 14 year old girl on that site.

You're talking about a completely different problem! Did you read the article? It talks about how the NSA wants to gather data, and information about you, and others that is posted on MySpace. How that information is going to be used, and who is going to use it, is what should be a concern. The NSA has no interest what so ever in protecting you on MySpace. The NSA wants to be your friend. They are the ones you need to press the DENY button on!

No problem! With all the pedophile crap going on in MySpace, it's understandable that one might assume that's what it was about. Like I said, that's another situation, and you, and your friends are definitely doing the right thing to avoid those crazies!
