    Its a kinda scary thing really. The internet is such a big animal now it can never be 100% tamed. The experts can only firefight, as soon as one danger area is closed then another gets opened.
    I beleive though that under a certain age then parents should be more responsable, yeas i know there are those who will argue this with me but as with all the problems with children today the parents must start taking the initiative and go back to being parents, after all you would not let your child play with a knife would you? The dangers of the internet should be taken as seriously in my opinion.
