New Bill Could Ban Social Websites On Public Terminals
A new bill that passed 410-15 in the U.S. House of Representatives could soon spell the end to chat room use on public terminals, like ones found in schools in libraries. The bill is a response to the increasing threat of child predators on sites like MySpace. The problem with the bill though, is that it's a bit vague in its wording, and could be interpreted to mean the barring of any site that a personal profile can be made on (such as hardware forums). So, is it a well thought out bill that will protect children using the internet, or a knee-jerk reaction to a problem that's been around before Myspace was even here?
