– 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!!!!– by my 2 centshaving 2 daughters aged (now) 19 and 12, we have a simple rule in our house – no chat rooms.surf the net by all means, chat with your friends on msn, but you don't need to go talking to strangers.
no we don'behave in a proper should it be any different on the web.i say shut down all the chats till the human race learns to comunicate in a civil manner.i have yet to see an online forum that wasnt filled to the hilt with bickering yelling cursing or deletion of posts.i f the human race can't catch up then darnit let's throw away all this crap we have created and go live in mud huts where we started from.
has never pretended to be a breaking new site so stop complaining about it!
chat 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.
to do not speak about something, anything, is a sure way of forcing a child to ask the wrong person.
if you create an ashamed overregulated environment they'll look for an unregulated one to ask and talk about things that do not make them a sick person but a human being, the problems is that unregulated environments are full of people who's view we don't like (not only sickos).
there isn't a lot you can do to stop the sick freaks that pose as children, but it can't be that hard to stop your children going to meet strangers on their own?
