It's a pity that the very real and serious issues surrounding digital ethics are obscured by the general inability of elected officials to know what they're talking about.

All the government should do here, is ensure FB has a proper report system that follows up on complaints.

Not bringing charges against 14 year old frapers while banksters walk free.

Very few people over the age of 50 can operate a DVD player , never mind comprehend the internetz.
Given the age profile of the Oireachteas,we're doomed.

Exactly, the amount of times she says "I've heard" you'd swear she was talking about the puka or something!

The Stoopid, it burns!

The thing is though age doesn't seem to be a factor in this utterly-clueless-but-will-spout-on-anyway mentality, or this utter lack of cop-on when it comes to modern technology. I mean do any of you think younger FF/G/L TDs would be any better? Say, Lucinda? Labour have already proved their Looper credientials with young Sherlock's insane anti-internet laws. I don't know if any FF TDs are under 50 and don't care, they are FF so by definition drooling inbreeds anyway.

Point is, the sort of person who is attracted to and survives the party political machine of traditional Irish politics is not going to be the sharpest mind in the room, and is always going to be a few decades behind the evolution of Irish society - which itself is always decades behind the rest of the world.

There is a problem with some aspects of social media there is even, what is it called, cyber sex? The image of silly young people, Naive enough to believe anything? and some not so young: I understand a senator in the US had to resign because of his own foolish behaviour.

The internet is changing becoming far more interactive and it maybe that there should be some rules.

Hysteria, grandstanding, waffle, lack of research and sheer stupidity.
Are you afraid of rules? The word rape has been used to describe assault other than sexual and young people have been known to commit suicide partly because of cyber bullying. Perhaps a little regulation would be a good idea, arrogant, insufferable whelps would learn where the buck stops if it had to be rammed down their throats.

I'm astounded by the waste of time involved in the sheer lack of research.

I have no problem with rules. Some of the stuff the senator was asking the minister she could have found out with 30 seconds on Google.

Her use of the term "Frape" was hysterical.

And No, I have no problem with rules.

Crass ignorance is another matter.

She sounds like anyone who uses the computer for work and not much else, that's not unusual most of us do that but the number is changing, more people particularly young people use computers all the time. Fraping sounds a young peoples word, possibly American in origin.

Not everyone is familiar with Google and then not everyone thinks Google when they want to learn about something. So no its not ignorant to be unfamiliar with the language of the internet. It maybe that the sites like face book and twitter will need to increase their own security they should. No news paper or magazine could get away with the kind of personal insults and attacks that happen on an almost daily basis on the big sites.

It is the duty of parents to control what their offspring gets up to. The simplest way to ensure that their eejit offspring don't get fraped or cibullied or netsulted is not to supply them with a computer in the first instance. There is an abundance of Net-Nanny type software on the market also.

That's a cop out in my own family two were given Ipads for christmas their ages are three and five. Obviously the kind of use is strictly monitored but that's only easy when the children are that age. Older children want and need more access and bullying doesn't happen on porn sites which are easily monitored it happens on respectable sites like face book, twitter and you tube. All the big sites are big enough to have proper security. If they got their own house in order there would be no need for legislation.

There is no such thing as eejit offspring an offensive remark which is also hopelessly wrong.

Your first sentence suggests that your last sentence is not so hopelessly wrong. iPads for 3/5 year olds. Magnificent parenting and the offspring will follow the parents. Apples not falling far from the tree. Think of the children.

What on earth are you talking about? First Ipads are not dirt cheap many families can't afford to buy such toys.

I always think of the children they must be protected, parents do their best but it would do no harm at all if companies gave as much thought to their young members, and face book, twitter you tube etc are all about youth, as they do to their profit margin.

I'm surprised this is even being debated its a no brainer, but this is p.ie after all.

Let's just hope that the Frape Fiddy was refering to was facebook... otherwise we may have a larger problem to deal with than sexting....


Frape:
A conjuration of fruit and rape. It involves shoving fruit into orifices that fruit have no right being in.
"He fraped her when he stuck that banana in that hole.'
