Examples MySpace's irresponsibiliy abound! They really don't care what people use 
their site for, nor how old their account holders are. HOWEVER, this young man's 
problems run far deeper than his MySpace account. If, at age 11, his generally 
disrespectful and anti-social proclivities already run to bullying and pornography, 
then his parents are going to have to do far more to remedy the situation than just 
getting his account deleted.

From the e-mail Nancy Willard shared: 

"We bought him a pc to use for his school work not to bully people on
myspace....I thought you had to be much older to use I would
like his profile deleted. I dont know what else to do about this. I wish you
folks would not let 11 year olds on myspace. Even though it is a good way to
make friends it is not for 11 year old boys. Our friends have also been
letting us know that he is sending them porn videos and he laughs about it."
