– by my 2 centshaving 2 daughters aged (now) 19 and 12, we have a simple rule in our house – no chat rooms.
– by a goddamned trampwhy do people keep complaining about 'old news on geek.com'?
for the last time: this is a news opinion and comment site!!!!
has never pretended to be a breaking new site so stop complaining about it!
i can see these people in history class: “this happened over 200 years ago! ” – by tired of saying itchat rooms are all poop in the 70 i was into cb radio (chaos central) kinda like the voice chat of now days but more like the wild wild west,people keying on each other whistling playing music drowning each other out..later on in the 90's i bought a computer.
made a surprise move last week and shut down its user-created chatrooms.
the company made the move when it was discovered that the online forums were being used by sexual predators to prey on underaged children.
it is unfortunate that she may apply this to decent men that do actually exist – by getoutoftheboxone of the reasons children of any gender talk to strangers about sex is because they know they can't do it in their houses.parents would like their children to do no have a sex life at all until married, but that's not how it is.
parents pretend to ignore the facts rather than teching their children how to have a good sex life (not referring to have a lot of sex but to live a healthy sex life), probably because they themselves don't have one and would rahter live unsatisfied and shamed than actually learn about something healthy.
surf the net by all means, chat with your friends on msn, but you don't need to go talking to strangers. how many children are coaxed from their families by these individuals, to never be seen again.
i have told both girls that sick old men pretend to be boys and no one needs to talk to you about sex.i have to say, i have used the quiz rooms on some sites and apart from the fact my pc is slow – its harmless fun. my oldest daughter will be 11 in september and yes, i do my darndest to preach that men are selfish pigs out there and there are predators. – by the toad“i do my darndest to preach that men are selfish pigs “ so you are rasing a man hater, i am sure men will apreciate that once she is old enough to have a relationship.
when i bought my first computer i signed up with a local service provider and checked out the chats,i was not impressed.still after all these years i'm still not impressed.people are still people if you can call them that, regardless of the medium cb- ham radio or online the ones i ran into in the chats were quite loose with the keys if you know what i the millions of years we have been on this rock technology has grown by leaps and bounds but socially were are still in the dark still have that neanderthal mindset food sex entertainment,it's just a shame that some have taken it upon themselves to not use the technology wisely and sit ther at the screen and grunt,eat,fart,and say wow cool look at that chick or dood.i as a human can't understand how in gods name we could have advanced technologically yet socially we are the same as we were thousands of years would think the human race would have adavanced at the same rate socially as well as technologically and we wouldnt have to worry about our children being harrased by perverts- (neanderthals)i'm sure many of you have run into the person in a chat that bombards everyone with asl we are in a public forum such as a mall or an auditorium for a paticular function do we stand around and ask each other asl???
