A 14-year-old Travis County girl who said she was sexually assaulted by a Buda man she met on MySpace.com sued the popular social networking site Monday for $30 million, claiming that it fails to protect minors from adult sexual predators.
The lawsuit claims that the Web site does not require users to verify their age and calls the security measures aimed at preventing strangers from contacting users younger than 16 "utterly ineffective."
I just can't stand crap like this. Should a website be held legally responsible for the well-being of some teen who's stupid enough to meet people she talks to on MySpace? Hell no! Obviously the mother wasn't doing her job, and now she wants money for it? I'm sorry, but this is complete and utter BS.
