There is lots of news everyday, all over the world, affecting many people. In some cases, news in one country will spill over to another, especially in terms of war, natural disasters and celebrities getting married/divorced/drunk.

To try and cover all of this, I hope that people will discuss the news within this thread to save clutter and to help those who may know little about a story find out more. If it is likely a story will lead to great debate, a debate topic may be a better idea, otherwise post what you think and know here so we may all know about the news from around the world.

Won't you feel so much better for that?

Silly stories may still go into the 'Crazy News' thread

I agree with you, Rhynd. They've already created all of the rating systems and banned more than enough things in my opinion. They need to refocus their efforts.

I feel that it couldn't hurt for them to increase the education for parents and younger children about computers/internet safety. In the case of my sister she had her computer and was online a couple of years by the time they talked to her about the dangers of internet stalkers and the like at school. Our mother has never been on a computer and was under the assumption that since my sister is home, safe within the house, there was nothing to worry about. It wasn't until the phone bill had calls to Hawaii, California, and all over the country that the beacon lit up that there might be a problem.

Also, a lot of people look online to post how they feel and to escape real life problems. Sometimes someone will listen and help that person calm down, but there are others out there who would encourage the person to lash out. There are all kinds of telephone support systems set up that will counsel and listen for free and would be a safe source to call - I wonder if it might help to have some kind of internet based service that would do the same? If there already is something set up, it should be made a household name.
