WTF is up with Myspace.com?????????????

Ok, as we all know, Zig is on the bleeding edge of trends and technology, so had to check out this "MySpace.com" thing.

Upon my first visit, I quickly learned that in order to view any of the pics, you had to join......pity too, I'm a dirty old man and all, but seemed a bit of a hassle to look at a lil T&A.

OK, so I created a profile, easy enough and all, good to go. Now time to go and test drive my super cool new alter ego and swat friend requests down being the King of Kings I am. I quickly learned a few very important things....

1) While nude photos are prohibited, suggestive ones are not. That and there are apparently way way more underage teen bi/lesbian girls trolling the internet for like minded sex than even I imagined. Yes yes.......I know 90% of those profiles are 40ish guys posing as girls trolling, but even with 10% legit,,,,DAMN!!!

2) Customized profiles are very popular, and apparently never previewed by the author. Here's a fucking hint people....dark text on a dark backround....is HARD TO READ!! I mean for crying out loud.....thats HTML 101!!! Another hint.....colors like lights purple.....on a slightly darker purple.................EVEN HARDER!!! Bitch of that is....it's almost readable and we strain our eyes and try!

3) Most customized profiles there basically suck....not all, some damn fancy..........but most........yeah they suck.

So anywho.........I take the time to set up an account, now off to the forums...yak with like minded geniuses, make friends, plot world domination right? So I'm reading a brilliant thread discussing butter vs margerine, and I have this really really witty post to add, I'm feeling the love here, I go to post.......DENIED

4) You must have your myspace account 7 days before you can post in the forums. This is an attempt to reduce spam and flaming...............hrrm......so I can create hundreds of bogus accounts, but have to wait 7 days to use them..........Genius....truly brilliant.

So anywho, that was my initial brush with myspace.com, I won't dump it for atleast 7 days, but rather dubious the whole place. Call me an old fart........but I still prefer IRC to this php/bbs crap......

Anybody else here use myspace?

You are a fucking moron! First off Myspace is not for old men who probably only want to get laid. It's people like you who cause the problems in the first place. It is a place for teenagers and young adults to talk to their friends. NOT FOR NASTY ASS PERVERTS TRYING TO GET SOME FROM A 12 YEAR OLD. You and people like you make me sick. You are the reason the Internet is so dangerous

Actually, I thought "myspace" was for up and coming bands to share their music, get some notice, and play time.

As for the "pervert/nasty ass" comment, piss off, you don't know me.

While I agree with you that an adult stalking, lurking young teens or worse yet even pre-teens is just fucking wrong, without question, I'd submit to you, where did these kids learn to post as they do?

The net, like the world is a dangerous place. You may not like what I have to say, but as a parent, I feel it's "MY" responsibility to make sure my kids have a proper education, and toolbox in life, and know how to use it.

Don't pre-judge me.

Hey Anonymous,

You are probably some ugly, dumb, fucking cunt who can't get any. And you were probably rejected by a Nasty ass pervert, so you're taking it out on a good, decent pervert.

Fuck off YOU MORON! Leave the good pervs alone. Go back to Myspace and diddle yourself for some dirty old fat bastard who will gladly do you in your trailer.
