Myspace Deleting Underage Profiles

This is a post I've been meaning to make for a while now.

In case you didn't hear this gem about Myspace deleting Underage profiles, It apparantly doesnt just apply to the youngins.  Anyone who lies about their profile gets their profile deleted. 

There is this kid Nick, who is a friend of Bern's family, who is one of those annoying kids that just bug the crap out of you.  So one day I noticed his Myspace profile age was set as 22 years old. So as a joke, i reported him.  Within a week, he got the following E-mail.

Subject: MySpace Account Cancellation
Hello,

Please note that you do not meet the required age limit as per MySpace.com's Terms of Service, or you have misrepresented your
age on the MySpace.com system.
We deleted your account because you have violated the Terms of Service.
Do not create another account on MySpace.com until you reach the required age, or use the correct age on your profile if you are old enough to have an account.

If you meet our required age limit, please sign up with your correct age.
Thank you,
MySpace

And as a reward, i got this E-mail about a week later.

Hello,

Thank you for reporting this profile. The profile in question is
scheduled to be deleted.

Thank you,

MySpace.com

Now isn't a little unfair that the first step is account deletion.  It even states in that first E-mail, that the account age could have been entered in-correctly.  So what if someone does accidently enter the wrong age, and they eventually get caught.  It's a bit unfair that they delete the account first thing IMHO.  At the very least, there should be a stern warning E-mail before the deletion step.  Myspace has once again, become a giant douche bag.

As long as we are talking about Myspace, go download the Brand New MyspaceIM that you will never use.  And go buy the Myspace phone, so you can send out brainless bulletins while you are AFK.

I should just go back to boycotting Myspace, the whole thing makes no sense.

  6. It’s not like I work for myspace or something (god forbid). The link in my previous comment should prove sufficient.
