Someone told my wife that the myspace site is bad. They said it will be brought out more in the upcoming assemblies. A lot of Dubs have gotten themselves in trouble on the site. So now if I mention myspace my wife automatically responds, "I thought myspace is bad!" To which I reply, "Anything can be misused and turned into something bad. It all depends on what you're using it for." Right now I'm enjoying the new karaoke feature on myspace. Have you heard some of these performances? Hilarious! And can you believe how things can get a bad rap by the borg without using any reasoning ability at all? Oh yeah... I guess you can believe that.
Myspace is bad
We are talking a very worldly activity on line , there are way too many temptations . I'm always getting porn people wanting an add . I don't get how people let their kids communicate with strangers and get in trouble as they do .

They're just trying to get "friendly". *giggity*
Myspace is horrific from a purely layout and design viewpoint.
Myspace has been mentioned at conventions for the past couple years.
It's fine as long as you use it properly and responsibly, for its intended purpose (of picking up fourteen-year-olds).
Kidding, before anyone calls Dateline.
Ha! Your post reminds me of a Joey & David clip:
As per usual here on JWD.
Everything seems to always relate back to the WT Society. This has nothing to do with it!
YES: Myspace is bad and I won't let my preteen girls look at it. Gross content and comments.
Please, parents beware!
Bibles are BAD!
If there used to spawn hatred, racism, homophobia and murder.
The Watchtower society is bad when it's used to protect pedophiles
What isn't bad?
There are several sites with comments columns, two way communication and search features that are an open door for predetors and access to material you wouldn't want your children to view.
You tube for example, type the words "catheter insertion" on the search line and you'll find something you wouldn't want your children to see. The list goes on.
A lot of parents are unaware of what their children are doing or have access to. These parents are missing the warnings that are scattered here and there. The witness parents are getting the warnings and thats about the only good thing I could say about the WTS policies regarding the internet.
Here is the deal with MySpace. Evidently, the Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger has noticed that too many people are getting into small Bible discussions on that site. There are too many apostates on there trying to lure unsuspecting people out of the cancer. And I guess a member of that Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger saw some of my apostate posts, designed to get people to do what they are not supposed to: think.
There are some cautions that are legitimate. There are continual spam "friend" invites. If you let them join, they will send you spam comments, often leading to porn sites that do nothing more than drain your bank account. There are flame wars on some of the forums (at least the religious ones I can handle--after all, if I intend to ruin religion, I had better be prepared to deal with people that are going to use specious reason to defend it). Some of the biggest threats are when you try to ask for advice on health matters, and the allopathic crowd drowns out any help that might actually work. On the flip side, every MLM member is advertising their products on that forum. You can in fact pick up a virus or spyware. And, some content may be inappropriate. Links to porn are not appropriate for people under 18.
All in all, I think the good outweighs the bad. Hopefully, my account on MySpace (a blatant apostate blog at that) will make them think twice before shunting me to the Value Destroyer Training School.
