    Like what, exactly?

    I found the tone of the article typically hysterical (it was the Mail, after all), but they raised at least one valid concern: it is not a good thing that a young girl's reaction to a bunch of men exposing their genitalia is "Oh well, I'll click on until I eventually get someone who isn't a pervert."

    I meant that previous generations (our parents, grandparents etc) never experienced the "online world" that we use, and all the rubbish that comes with it (spam email, unwanted exposure to 'adult' images, constant advertisment for gambling, phising scams, identity theft.....) in addition to all the other stuff that did happen to those older generations when they were young too (war, terror, famine, povety, debt, and so on).

    All these things are perils of the Internet that most of us here just 'cope' with as part of our life because we are able to just "click next until we find something we like". But these things are foriegn concepts to a large proportion of those older users; it's not suprising that so many people *are* scared of computers/the internet when you see what CAN happen if you arn't careful.


    but they raised at least one valid concern: it is not a good thing that a young girl's reaction to a bunch of new exposing their genitalia is "Oh well, I'll click on until I eventually get someone who isn't a pervert.
    Would the parents of these children prefer that their child have a nervous breakdown and run crying to Mummy about the "bad man on the internet" every time they see something they don't like? These so-called "young girls" are 16+ in age, by definition they are at least young adults, and are prefectly capable of deciding what and what not to view when online.

    Personally, if it were my daughter, I'd rather she was able to just say "I don't like that, I'm moving on to another site". I certainly wouldn't be up in arms campaigning for the Internet to be governed because 'oh no my daughter saw a penis her life is ruined'.


    What this whole argument boils down to is whiny nagging moany Mums like the writer of that article wanting to keep their precious 'innocent' child as 'innocent' and protected from the world for as long as possible, a completely idiotic concept if you ask me, wrapping kids in cotton wool and all that.

    It's not like being able to see people doing adulterated things is not already abundant on the Internet, and yet this article makes this site sound like a brand-new form of perversion so evil it will make your eyes bleed. Google "Cam Chat", I'd wager you get hundreds of thousands of results.

    These DM-reading/writing types of people only ever think new things are evil.
    If it were up to them, we'd all be keylogged, the Internet would only contain their paper's website and sites which they themselves have deemed suitable, we'd only be allowed to browse during set hours, computer gaming would be banned (as everyone at the DM knows, it causes children to become violent offenders), and every precious innocent person under the age of 18 would be kept seperate from the rest of us living in this cruel, cruel world for fear of corrupting their delicate minds.

    It's all BS. Fact is, any of the 16 year olds who are *legally* viewing the site can also *legally* go and get first hand experience of anything they might catch on the camera. If they are under 16, they shouldn't be on the site anyway.


    Maybe I'm the oddball for not being up-in-arms about it, but I just don't see what the big deal is.

    And I will always stand by my argument that if you do not apply the parental controls, and/or do not supervise your child online, you have no right to complain about *anything* they do or see online.

    Just remember - if you can get arrested for it, it's not a 'joke'

    Sounds like a life/relationships lesson right there - keep moving on until you find someone who isn't derranged, a pervert, thinking of murdering you in your sleep, likes wearing bunny slippers, etc, etc, etc....

    I dunno, I've been playing eve-online for a number of years, and I occasionally meet people in real life and think "Really wish I could Pod this ".

    I stick by we learn from experience, and it's better that people experience things for themselves, and make their own decisions on right/wrong, acceptable and not, than shield them from anything/everything we deem 'too mature' for them.

    Tell a person "Don't press the red button" seal it in a protective case with lots of tape seals on, they'll think for ages what does the button do, consider ways they can press the button covertly, and usually they'll go press the red button and see what happens.
    Leave a person with a red button and a warning label, when it gives them the shock, they are unlikely to press it again.

    It doesn't mean they should experience everything from any age, as causing harm is a bad thing, but if they are old enough to experience it and understand it, they need to learn about it.
