MySpace is No Place for Your Place
If you haven’t caught on to the MySpace issue, then you’ve been living under a rock at the bottom of the ocean. Just check out this post I covered earlier this year to fully understand the issues I have with MySpace. The bottom line for me: no one should have a MySpace. Sorry, but it’s just trash.
You can take a look at a recent news story for more and more proof:
A 16-year-old girl who tricked her parents into getting her a passport and then flew to the Mideast to be with a man she met on MySpace.com has returned to Michigan.
U.S. officials in Jordan persuaded Katherine R. Lester to turn around and go home before she reached the West Bank. Lester arrived at Bishop International Airport in Flint late Friday and was taken to a private area to be reunited with her family.
She disappeared Monday after talking her parents into getting her a passport by saying she was going to Canada with friends, sheriff’s officials said.
She apparently planned to visit a man whose MySpace account describes him as a 25-year-old from Jericho, Undersheriff James Jashinske said.
I will never forget the statement of 18-year-old David Ludwig, a MySpacer, who shot and killed his 14-year-old girlfriend’s parents in cold blood:
â€œIt was an intentional murder, I intended to shoot them, and I did.â€
Horrible just can’t describe what happened. I urge you, parent and student, to get rid of your MySpace. Parent, make sure you know what’s happening. Visit friends sites. Know what is being posted. Kids, give up the addiction and get out of the trash. I beg you.
Rebellion grows like wildfire on MySpace.
