MySpace Removes Over 90,000 Sex Offenders


Pressure still mounts as war continues:

On Tuesday, MySpace said they have identified and removed over 90,000 different sex offenders.

That number was almost double what the company had originally estimated last year which promoted Attorney Generals in two different states to demand more be taken by the News Corp. owned social networking giant.

Last year, MySpace and rival Facebook implemented several safety features including different ways to verify a user's age and limit the ability of adults to search for members under the age of 18.

Anyway, while something at least has been done by both sides regarding sexual predators using the site, all a sex predator really needs to do is create an underage alias and bi-pass the already "new" flawed implementations.

Regardless, this is still a step in the right direction and after 3 years of doing this, I've noticed that things have gotten somewhat better over there.

Now on Facebook an argument could be made...
