In Brazil, Canada, Japan, and the United States, MSN's chat rooms will stay open, but users will need to participate in at least one paid MSN service, ensuring that Microsoft has users' credit card numbers and other personal information on file in the event of abuse.Microsoft currently provides local MSN content in 33 countries and 17 languages, and the company says that more than 200 million people use the service worldwide; more than 1.2 million people access the MSN chat rooms. In my programs is one that says you can install parental controls, why isnt it being used??Microsoft announced this morning that, to reduce criminal exploitation of children, pornographic spam, and other inappropriate uses, the company will shut down its free MSN chat rooms in Asia, Europe, and Latin America and will limit the service in Brazil, Canada, Japan, and the United States.The changes will take effect October 14, according to Microsoft, and will affect all the countries in which MSN is available.I agree the teens rooms have a lot of filth in them and not just by adults preying on children. restricted internet access is better then nothing at all plus it will keep them from coming into contact with harmful chatters.I have seen discusting ads from 13 year olds asking for sex and other perversions!! Close the teen rooms or monitor them is the best thing, hosts have a way of knowing who is legit or not and can clean up the filth the kids spew in the rooms too. Parents, when are we going to step up to the plate and take action? I applaud Microsoft for their efforts to protect kids from pedophiles, child molestors and online predators.
