Sorry, I didn't mean to sound like what the guy did was OK; I just don't think it's myspace's fault. I think the guy should be charged with rape, a regular criminal case, but no civil case against myspace, that's just being greedy.

The original story read like a date rape; what's weird is you click on it today and it's trimmed down. Yesterday it went into detail that he picked the girl up, took her out to eat at Whataburger, and took her to a movie; after the movie, in the car, he raped her. Sounds like everything was OK til then. Guess he felt like she owed him for the evening? Some guys are pretty cocky, he might not have even felt like he was doing anything wrong.

I don't know how myspace could have foreseen that the guy would be a freak and a rapist.

Should people have to sign a waiver to use myspace? That doesn't abdicate personal responsibility?

As far as the guy lying on his profile, lots of people stretch the truth online; maybe a year ago, he was a senior & a football player, and he still wants to think of himself that way; it's not like he's a 50-yr-old with gray hair and a potbelly like the creeps on Dateline "To Catch a Predator"...
