Sometimes he gets invitations to join groups -- "Janishia," for example, would like Marshall to sign up for the "Free College Scholarships Event Giveaway" group. (Although you don't need to be a member to enter the $10,000 scholarship giveaway -- all she wants is your first and last name, your e-mail, your physical address, date of birth and your phone number, all required fields.) When Marshall's logged on late at night, he can drift away from his home page for a mere minute or two, then return to find eight new messages and twelve new friend requests on his page -- all from beautiful women who think he's hot.
So what's the problem? First, it's all MySpace SPAM -- the same type of litter that Denver's own Scott Richter is accused of sprinkling across the social networking site. Second, Marshall is a bulldog, not an eighteen-year-old male (as his profile states). His interests include chasing cats, going to the dog park, eating, high-fiving and bones. Sniffing crotches didn't make the list; neither did higher education.
Even if the MySpace lawsuit against Richter is dropped, something must be done about the rampant pornography solicited via MySpace. Corrupt all the young teenaged males you want; just leave my bulldog alone. -- Amber Taufen
