U.S. House Would Ban MySpace From Schools...CAN YOU SAY FASCIST GOVERNMENT!!!!

OBM: The real reason is that they want to stop peoples ability to get real news & the truth out about the evil things that evil men are doing!!!!! The internet is the last & only place left for people to communicate with large amounts of people. Therefore "if the truth can not be heard, it can not be known."

The U.S. House voted Thursday to ban social networking sites such as MySpace.com from school and library computers.

Some complained, however, that the wording of the law is so broad that it could ban many common sites.

Rep. Michael Fitzpatrick, who introduced the Deleting Online Predators Act, said it was necessary because some services have become "feeding grounds for child predators that use these sites as just another way to do our children harm."

According to the law, it bans sites that:

  • Are offered by a commercial entity
  • Let users create online profiles with personal information
  • Let registered users create and share an online journal
  • Ask for personalized information
  • Allow communcation among users

Opponents said along with MySpace, that could include Amazon.com and other shopping sites and any news or entertainment service that includes message boards on which users can post after creating an account.
