And soon on Wikipedia, presumably...

One wonders why people who sistematically misuse electronic components to cause distress don't get barred from using them. Putting aside the fact that the bad boy is 6 months in, 6 months out...

He gets more attention than he deserves, because he was stupid enough to get pinned down by the authorities. Frankly, I recommend that you don't discuss him, especially in a public forum. He just thrives on it.

Aren't your jimmies rustled by the fact that "social media" is making it easier for idiots to mess around with real people (and not just ghostly nicknames)? Now that kids born after 1992 or so are giving data away like candy due to stupid social pressure, what happens? Is there a point in yelling "PRIVACY" and "SECURITY" now?

Raise kids better? I mean, usually the consequences are their own fault, but that doesn't make it OK to stand by and say "I told you so."

Keep that internet connection locked in a steel box until the critter is 18.

Parents have more important things to worry about.

Having said that, someone should probably look up Andrew's restraining order history. He must have a dozen at the rate he has been going.

Why blame "kids born after 1992"? I hate to be ungallant, but I'd be surprised if say Alison is that young, or Krimpet, or any of the other high-profile stalking victims we've had on Wikipedia. And even when considering children, it's often their parents' faults. I haven't checked, but is it a certain Miss W-- who posted stuff about herself all over the place to be picked up by a Mr. G-- K--? My inclination is to blame her father, Mr. J-- W--, who really should have known better.

Two faces for the same medal. You will just have to accept that if you give personal data to strangers, or if you leave personal data scattered somewhere where there isn't any option to delete permanently, some strangers may be tempted to use it to mess with you. It's arguable that these days it might be impossible to not be plastered somewhere online beyond our control. Most of the newer generations don't understand this concept, and some people over those ages don't get it as well.
Then, keep complaining when your daughter gets naked for the camera on Omegle, and then the other guy scatters the photos on Faceborg.

And Faceborg and Gugle are taxed by the U.S. government, while Wikipediotia is not taxed and is viewed as serious business by uninformed people.
