My perspective; Parents should be watching their kids on the internet & making sure they're safe. If the kids don't use their knowledge on the internet, that's their problem. Learn to grow up & use the internet properly. If you get hurt or in trouble, there's probably a reason behind it that the kid is the cause of. I know parents can't always be watching the kids, but they should be able to take care of them enough to know what they're doing. If they don't well that's more of a family issue to deal with.

I think it's more of a half and half thing. The staff is thinking about the little children, but worry about the adults & teenagers that wanna have a little fun and feel free to talk about things? I got a post deleted by talking about satan. You don't know if someone on WI believes in worshiping satan and could sue for religious discrimination. But, the little kids on shouldn't be ignorant by giving people their city, location, phone number, etc anyway.

And about venting problems, not everyone has someone to talk to. Not everyone can afford a therapist. Not everyone has a family to talk to. Not everyone has friends. & if we can't talk about relationships & vent problems in Open Mike, what CAN we talk about there? I understand the ground rules, but some are just getting flat out ridiculous. I also don't think age matters. There's a billion other people with the same age. Reply with agree/disagreements?

All friend advice SHOULD be allowed because EVERYONE has friends and EVERYONE (at one oint or another) wants/needs advice...
No one says that...lol.

It's a bit peculiar to have money to pay for internet and not school. It isn't right, does anyone not agree with me? WI is not a place to discuss those things as WI isn't made to discuss about these things
Yes, WI is targeted for Webkinz, but what do you think the "Open Mike" is for?

Heres how creepers work without WI (I am not a creeper, so I can't do it 100% right. Plus they work over months and months to get info)
User (good person)
Creeper (creeper)

Creeper *made a poll about what color eyes they have*
User : I have blue eyes.

Creeper *made an open mike section about your hair color*
User: I have brown hair.

Creeper *goes on DCT and talks to user*
User: it's warm here in Florida.

Not much has been learned
Brown haired, Blue eyes, Florida

But think if they keep telling things, the creeper would know more.

If they posted their age, their first and middle name... how tall they are, how much they weigh, what school, what city.

People are not smart enough to do that, trust me. I know someone who told everything about themself and toke pics of them and posted it.

WI is here to keep you safe. I know awful stories about children who fall for their tricks and give out info.
Well kids should know who to trust or who not to. If they don't, don't be on the internet chatting freely with other users. I don't know that any of you are random creepers. Parents should be telling their kids what to do and not to do on the internet. Learn something about it before you use it. I think posting state, age, weight, and height don't matter. MANY MANY MANY other people could have the exact same thing. Anything else, would be bad. But again, it's the kid's responsibility to know what to say.

Just quoting what I've posted.

It's better to be safe than sorry. No matter if you are 5, or 95, people CAN track you down with information. For people who say they want to be less safe than more safe, I'm a little confused why someone would say that. I would rather be more safe than less safe, but that's just my opinion. The mods and admins close and delete threads for a reason, they aren't monsters with delete buttons they press for enjoyment, like Desty said. Being a mod/admin is more responsibility and work then you think, and personally, the mods ad admins have a lot on their plate, and I think it would be better if we say "Thanks!" and "I love what you do!" instead of complaining why WI is too strict for our safety.
It's just my opinion.
Also, since everyone is talking about if family problems and such should be allowed, I'm deciding to give my opinion (hopefully no one will yell at me and say I'm wrong like the other times )

Family Advice: I think non-personal family advice could be allowed. How to get your family closer together, how to be nice to your brother, nothing personal.
Friend Advice: I think Friend Advice should be OK in the Open Mike. People probably want to talk to people their own age, who have probably been to the same problems. After all, we are a community.
Medical Advice: If it's simple, like "How do I get my mosquito bite to stop itching?" because many people on here probably have special methods, etc. BUT, if it's something that only a doctor knows the answer to (I think a majority of us probably aren't doctors ), I don't see a point in asking because people probably won't know. And if it's that bad, you should ask your parents if you can go to the doctor.

Just my opinion.
