I've heard so many problems going around in myspace. All my friends go on it but I think it's just plain dangerous and ridiculous! what do you think?

Myspace is silly. In the mass-homicide-justifying kind of way.

Myspace is fine so long are your careful and good at shaking off stalkers =)
Just use good ol' comman sense and you'll be fine.
For example, if a myspace *friend* asks you to meet them in london in a dark allyway in the middle of the night, what is your answer? No.

I only got Myspace because my friends bugged me to. :P Now it's helping me keep in touch with the ones that have moved away, both now and in the past.

Yeah, it can be dangerous, but only if you agree to meet someone or give them some kind of information that you shouldn't.

Really, I wouldn't recommend meeting ANYONE off of the internet, even if the place they ask you to go is more public than a dark alley. It's too risky.

Myspace is incredably annoying, like every other day you get invitations from it because of your friends....

Not really active around these parts anymore.

Hey hey hey, I met one of my best friends (in person) through the internet. It's not all bad.

It's just bad when you're, ah, stupid. Like the impression I get from most of myspace.

Point? I never said I met them through myspace. I was replying to hearthlight's net statement that meeting people from the internet is bad.

Don't double post.

I solve the MySpace problems by... not having an account! Bam!

(Let's not go into Facebook or Livejournal though. Oh no.)

I think places like MySpace are fine as long as you only contact people you already know or have known through it.

Everyone in the world has a myspace, except for like... thirty people. My friend went and created one for me, even.

i personally don't like the idea of it... just cause there are only so many blog/friendship things out there that everyone is a part of. Some people have accounts on ten different sites... LJ, xanga, deadjournal, facebook, friendster, myspace, this, that, and the other thing...because some friends of theirs have accounts on one thing but not another, so you have to comply to everyone.

people should go out and see those friends and play ball with them or something instead. Instead of leaving each other little messages. */bitter rant* :P

Granted, I'm an LJ addict, and have a facebook and a xanga (i don't count the myspace). But the latter two lie dormant, and LJ is not for social purposes. Yes.


Yes, I'm the forum [devil]... Any questions?

Another bad point about myspace:
Someone you dislike in real life trying to add you to their friends list. >___<
Can anyone help me think of a nice way of saying "No offence, but I hate your guts. I know you're too stupid even to realise most of your friends are with you so they dont get beaten up, but I still would rather avoid you at all costs"?

I think it all depenes on your age and amount of common sense (something I call CQ). If you're "CQ" is high, and you're the age of 14 or up, then, by all means, get an account (if you want to at some point in the future). I myself have never gone on it, and I can sure understand your feelings about it.

Lets put it this way: I've tried to walk through glass doors in the past. Without opening them.

I think I count as retarded far as CQ goes.

My space itself is harmless. It's some of the people that use it that is the problem.

If you're stupid enough to meet up with someone you don't know in the middle of nowhere, then quite frankly, you shouldn't be using it in the first place. As long as you've got half a brain plus a bit of common sense, then there is really no problem.

Mm, yes. ;)

I'm ever-so-slightly paranoid about putting pix up of me on the net, and connecting them with the 'Malkin' nick, cos of K9norn. He lives in my state, dammit... :(

I talked to my dad, and he said that myspace is something that one should avoid. I also talked to my mom, and she said that it is nice in a way, but you had to watch out all the time. I lean both ways. You have to watch out, and avoid it if you have a bad gut feeling about it.

There are alternative websites out there for people to join instead. What features would interest you in joining MySpace?

A lot of Creatures fans are members of LiveJournal.
