The keep your kids away from Republican congressmen act of 2006

The stupidly named “Deleting Online Predators Act“, if it becomes law, would require institutions that get federal funding to prevent access to social networking sites except under adult supervision.

This isn’t what I meant when I said that Myspace should go away.

“DOPA” won’t do anything to “delete” online predators. Instead, it’s a twisted attempt to restrict innocent people’s freedom while purporting to protect them. Sound familiar?

If Myspace should be banned from schools for any reason, it’s because it’s owned by News Corp and is saturated with advertising. Banning it because it enables communication (which can sometimes be dangerous) is a bad idea that won’t do anything and could theoretically result in banning the Internet from schools.
