Today I received an email with a concerning subject, "Really Concerned".
You have kids who are 8 and 9 years
old with profiles on here. I can't think of a more obvious way to
introduce young children to peodophiles. I don't understand how
allowing children so young to have a profile on a website is at all
necessary. Do you have children/nieces/nephews? Would you be happy
for them to be on a website that has the very real potential to put
them in that kind of situation? If not then why do you think it's ok
to put other children at risk?
p.s. I'm not some irrational parent with a chip on their shoulder.
I'm a 20 year old student without any children. It's just the thought
that my little sister could have a profile on your site, which may be
prayed on by a peodophile, really bothers and upsets me. Please don't
make it any easier for such a thing to happen and enforce an
appropriate age limit. Don't make it easier for horrific situations
to happen. You're kind of facilitating them at the moment.
What do you think?
I think Kupika is pretty safe (considering its anonymity, with no email required and
no photos) but it seems some people don't think so.
Enforcing an age limit is pointless because there is no real way to verify the
Hmm. The world is changing, Internet has become part of our lives and children need
to be educated about the danger of being online.
