Alright! My boyfriend and I came across this guy complaining to baby jesus (cherrytap creator) about how you couldn’t leave “dirty” comments to people on cherrytap and for that reason myspace was better…So, my boyfriend left a comment basically saying that myspace is a place for kids and that they shouldn’t be talked to like that! I agreed so I also left a comment to the guy as well stating my own opinion. This guy is 34 years old…he had to stoop so low as to insult me and my BF, even to say that his room looked messy? WTF? Anyways, he had the nerv to say that I was doing my BF’s dirty work, like “I’m a woman, I don’t have my own opinion about stuff like this?” HE was so manly he had to say this to my BF and not me…He said that WE were negative people, when he’s the one throwing insults left and right! I’m sorry if I want to protect myspace from this kind of person, but that IS NOT the place to talk dirty…That’s why this site doesn’t want “kids” joining.

I think people are starting to get way too involved in myspace. I don't work in the most professional of workplaces (restuarant business :roll: ) but I hear so much crap about myspace... somebody took somebody off there top 8, or did you see what so and so had on there page, etc. It is ruining lives and friendships lol... seriously though! Alot of these people maintain a friendship relationship based on myspace... which is pretty sad for a bunch of 'adults' if you ask me. ****, a few days ago I overheard a kid about 8yrs. old asking the girl (about the same age) if she had myspace! Are you kidding me? :lol:

I think myspace is alright, I mean its a good way for me to KIT with my freidns from high school and my family. But I agree with ya too, all the crap that it had caused >.< But myspace isnt the only thing out there either (people focus JUST on Myspace). I love meeting new people from all over the world, but there are some weridos out there. lol. I know this sounds kinda stupid, but I met my BF of over 2 years now on Myspace. Haha, lame, but I love him and I'm glad to have found him. :p

Myspace is evil. (That's been my slogan for a year or so.)

I gotta say, I'm not sure if myspace is a fad at all. It's one of the top 10 largest websites of all time.

Myspace reminds me of the 90's, though, when every kid could go out and get an angelfire or geocities account and make their own awful website with spinning skulls and terrible midis playing in the background and a background image that was the same color as the text.

Of course, I don't want to sound like one of those "too cool for the room I'm too good for myspace" kids, but that's just how i see it. I am on Facebook, which I do like more, but I hardly even go there anymore as well. Once I graduated and got a real job I kinda lost time for these things.

I think websites like Myspace and Facebook are useful for networking and keeping track of what people are up to, but some people really blow my mind. I'm amazed at the people with 200 friends - come on, you don't talk to all 200 of those people. You don't talk to 20 of those people.

I have a myspace and I have about 12 friends on it, and I have a Facebook which I use more often, and which I think is useful for keeping track of what's going on. I know people who are in theatre groups and they'll often post dates for when they're putting off shows, which is useful to me.

I think if you can keep it drama free and within your actual circuit of friends and not just some creeps you met online, it's a great thing.

200 friends is not that unrealistic. I have over 100 friends on my facebook at my school alone. Sure I'm not like "Best Friends" with all of those people, but that's not the point of networking, if you only have the people you talk to every day, what's the point of having facebook at all? For me it's a great tool to keep in touch with my more casual friends, and keep up on what's going on in their life. Same with MySpace. I love being able to post a casual note to a friend I haven't seen in a while. Sure a full letter or e-mail would probably be better, but a couple sentences is better than nothing at all.

I personally feel it's excessive.

It's great to keep in contact and to know what's going on with people, but 200 is a lot of people. I have way too much going on in my own life to possibly make time for 200 others.

well ive gotta say, i was on CT for a long time and when Baby J started telling me that my pics were NSFW(not safe for work) i left to avoid the BS. I can understand wanting to keep a site "clean" but to not allow pics of a pot plant on an "adult" web site is just too much. and the whole NSFW thing is BS too, work is called work for a reason. so im a myspace person now. my space is less BS and they dont work on a "points" system.....so every one gets the same thing no matter if your a newbie or a veteran. as for being able to leave "dirty comments" it should be the choice of the person who your commenting, they can allow or delete your comment rather then dealing with a "dictator" like Baby J. i feel it should be the choice of the user rather then the choice of the site administrator. but im not condoning the response that the dude gave to jennilove and her bf......he needs to do a little bit of growing up. this topic should be a discussion rather than an argument. and for the most part myspace is a 50 - 50 split between children and adults, so why dont we stop fighting each other and start to fight these porn bots and child molesters? idk bout all of you but i get at least 6 porn bots a day trying to get me to add them as a friend, and i dont even look at porn online! too many viruses......but any way, there has to be some way to get rid of them because if you or i am seeing them wat stops a child from seeing them? do they really need to be exposed to that at a young age?

No ones fighting anyone. I think that we DO need to stop the "porn bots and child molesters!" I dont see anything wrong with myspace or CT or any other site like that, its certain people that screw it up.

i agree i honestly can't stand porn, It makes women (or anyone in it) appear to be only usefull for sex. I wont go down that road right now lol, But i've seen that Myspace has somenew feature where you canlookup molesters in your area and ones that are members of Myspace. Seems they are trying to do something. I have a myspace but i'm not nuts over it. I use it mainly as an email :p lol. I mostly like the cute comments you can leave and junk like that. I don't think about that top8 crud.

I like looking at the bullitens of people who i otherwise might not know how are getting on. (wow that was a clumsy sentence!). theres alot of good causes on myspace and pages that help people (One click donation, Bi resorse centre ect). It is ment to be for over 18s n certainly in the uk i think we are far to uptight about sencorship. you can watch porn on tv 24/7 in Holland and they have much lower rates of teenage pregnancy and sexually trasmitted diseases. I grew up in a community that didnt hide sex from us when we were young and me and my friends have a fairly health attitude to it. As for viruses im allways very suspicious and so far havent been got. I think online communities of any kind cane be a brilliant resorce for lost of things.
