I remember there was scene in a movie, one of the minor characters said “Everyone on the internet is a pervert of some kind”.. ummm makes you wonder….

You realize that if the app find you via the picture from the CA Sex Offender Registry, that is a civil violation of CA Megan’s Law statutes. This goes for any private site that uses information derived from the site. This would be an interesting class action suit.

Another false sense of security. You are shutting out people who have a small chance of causing anyone harm. Instead, you trust the people who are most likely to commit 95% of sex crimes: family, friends the people not on the registry. People need to quit letting the corporations think for them. They are not doing this for your protection, just another way to raid your wallet.

another class action suit is to actually sue facebook for kicking RSO out.

Facebook’s terms and conditions states that Sex Offenders are prohibited from using facebook. It was reported that I was a sex offender, without any other reason than it was someones outrage that I was there and my account was obliterated. All evidence that I ever existed on FB excised. This included all the photos I had placed there, al posts and other’s posts. I know that there are registered sex offenders who use the site on a regular daily basis and they are not booted of. It apparently requires a complaint to do the banning. An app that FB is using to identify those who are or may be sex offenders apparently is not used internally.

I knew of Facebook’s TOS and never used it with my name. I had an account that I would use to communicate with my family as they live in another state. I didn’t have any pictures or any information that would identify me, yet it was taken down. No worries, I’m not a big fan anyway. However, just today my Instagram was taken down. Now I know that FB bought Instagram out, but no where in the Instagram TOS or “Community Guidelines” could I find that RSOs may not create an account. This bugged me more than anything because I have years of pictures that I had on there and now completely gone. It would have been nice to get a warning. Don’t get me wrong, I know some will use social media sites to stalk and harass others, but I had my IG on private settings and only used it to communicate with family. What’s next, kicking us off the web? This is getting ridiculous.
