MySpace: Is it censorship or is it protection?

MySpace has cleaned up its site in hopes of protecting its users. Deleting 200,000 users is that censorship or protection? I’m truly not sure. I will be pondering this for a few days. Luckily for us Rupert Murdoch’s MySpace wasn’t deleted.

MySpace.com, the fast-growing community website hugely popular with American teens, has removed 200,000 “objectionable” profiles from its site as it steps up efforts to calm fears about the safety of the network for young users.

The site, which allows users to create their own profiles with details of their interests that can be viewed and linked to by other MySpace.com “friends”, was acquired by Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp last year and its phenomenal growth has placed it at the centre of the media company’s internet strategy.

Ross Levinsohn, head of News Corp’s internet division, said some of the material taken down contained “hate speech”. Some of it, he said, was “too risqué”.

  3. Somehow whenever Liz writes anywhere. I’m there like flys on well you know. It’s horrible. She has a way of drawing in readers like no one else I’ve ever read. This is a worthy read for the fellow cult members of that strange religion Spier-entology. Glad to see her back blogging again.

  4. Hello! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search
    Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for
    some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
    If you know of any please share. Thank you!

  5. Look, I’m not here to tell anyone to do or not do porn, but if you are thinking about it, the
    first thing that you should know is that if you get any amount of
    non-porn fame after the fact, the company you made porn for is going to out you faster than I
    could crank one out to your clip.

  6. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation
    but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I
    would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get
    the hang of it!
