Myspace found 29,000 more sex offenders

...amazing, but really not surprising - 'nuff said; BE SURE you know whether your child's on Myspace or a similar social site, preferably they're not.

From the various new sources:

"MySpace.com has found more than 29,000 registered US sex offenders with profiles on the popular social networking website - more than four times the number cited by the company two months ago, North Carolina officials said.

North Carolina's Roy Cooper is one of several state attorneys general who recently demanded the News Corp-owned website provide data on how many registered sex offenders were using the site, along with information about where they live.

After initially withholding the information, citing federal privacy laws, MySpace began sharing the information in May after the states filed formal legal requests.

At the time, MySpace said it had already used a database it helped create to remove about 7000 profiles of sex offenders, out of a total of about 180 million profiles on the site."
