According to the North Carolina Attorney General, there are 29,000 registered sex offenders who have myspace.com accounts. As blogger Dad29 points out, those are just the sex offenders who used their real names.
The North Carolina Attorney General is pushing for a law to require parental consent before web sites such as myspace.com could open accounts for minors. The concept seems approproate but I suspect enforcement would be difficult.
Thanks to Dad29 for this bone-chilling news.
