...Opens Online Home for Wayward MySpace Profiles
San Francisco - You might have noticed that EFF has removed its Student Bloggers' Legal FAQ. This was in response to a cease-and-desist notice we received for "encouraging kids to talk back to their parents and teachers." This incident has opened our eyes to a new plague on the Internet -- the lost and wandering MySpace profiles of thousands of young people across our nation.
"These profiles are an unfiltered view of young people's thoughts and dreams, and that's just scary," said Bea Kweiter, a volunteer at the online home. "If this freewheeling expression is allowed to continue, there's no way the people associated with it will ever get a job in the real world. Well, unless some boss somewhere has a MySpace profile of her own. But that would never happen."
The home offers a safe place for profiles to learn how to self-censor. There is also a detox center for exclamation-point overload.
