And a thought on child safety with regards to internet sites and services?

Parents need to start fucking parenting.

The internet is as safe as the rest of the world, and it shouldn't need to be said, but in case it does...

The world is fucking inherently unsafe.

Just block your kids from accessing things like that, or have open dialogues with them to explain the bullshit away.

You wouldn't give your six year old access to liquor, cigarettes, or a goddamn gun.

Either take responsibility for your spawn, or give them up to someone who will.
