Urgent action needed to protect children online chat rooms ie; facebook, dating sites, porn sites, bebo etc.by Mrs Marina Creffield
i am voicing my concerns with you regarding children’s safety online. i am concerned about how easy it is for children to sign upto dating websites and porn sites alot of these you dont need proof of age ie; a credit card or some other form of id. i am writing to you because my 14 yr old daughter did just that along with thousands of other children under 18 yrs old. when my daughter signed up to some dating sites she was at the local library and set up a profile and put she was 18 yrs old and got an account with no need for proof of age. i want to protect not just my own children but thousands of others too. people/parents wonder why so many children go missing week after week because its sites like these. who knows who these children are chatting to. lets put a stop to this now.

With the explosion of t’internet, forums & bulletin boards, where people can virtually meet to discuss topics and preach their mantra’s have sprung up.
They cater for various groups. Some profess to be “family friendly” and as such I think need to make every effort to live up to such high ideals rather than merely pay lip service to it.
So, I would like to ask for your signature to create a law or government guidelines which can be enforce upon such sites to make sure ALL that appears on them is indeed “family friendly”.
I keep forgetting that Gordon Brown is King of the entirety of the Internet. Or “t’internet”.
