Feds vs. MySpace: The Game

CNET News.com: "This year has already brought ample paranoia from the Feds and U.S. politicians convinced that legions of child predators lurk in social networking Web sites.
Now the Federal Trade Commission has added a new tool to an existing arsenal of Internet protection tips offered through a site called OnGuardOnline.gov.
On Tuesday, the agency launched a Flash-based game called 'Buddy Builder.' Available in English and Spanish, its goal is to teach kids how to screen out Internet creeps that would like nothing more than to steal their identities or sexually assault them--'hackers, slackers, gawkers and stalkers,' as the introduction puts it. (It's unclear where 'slackers' fit in, other then for poetry's sake.) "
