Parents have an obligation to watch their children, period. There are numerous safeguards built into to many web sites, but there will never be a way of stopping all abuse.

Imagine suing the phone company, because an attacker used the phone to set-up the crime. I could go on and on, but it would mean nothing to the "trial attorneys", who will sue for any reason. They do more to harm our economy than Iraq or Hurricane Katrina put together.

There are valid reasons to bring litigation, but this suit is simply a bunch of money hungry lawyers satisfying their sick needs.

When will we learn to take responsibility for our own actions?
