If these bureaucrats want "privacy right" for children on the internet, the solution is simple: Parents should keep their children off the internet. Problem solved. Duh.

Duh._______________Duh, nothing...it isn't that simple. My 12 year old daughter is REQUIRED to use google docs for certain subjects. Kids have to go online to research nowadays. Leap into the 21st century.

Why is it so difficult for these "child stalkers/trackers" to just request and receive an electronic approval from their parent(s) the first time their child tries to use the site? And, why don't these dumbo marketers/advertisers do a REAL WORLD test by having an employee physically follow around a kid, keeping track of everything that interests the kid? How well would that go over? LEAVE THE MINORS ALONE!
