Myspace - A place for friends (to destroy the Internet)

Data protection authorities across the world have criticised the popular networking site myspace.com for failing to censor the submissions of its users and thereby threatening to swamp the worldwide web with meaningless drivel.

So gay
A spokesman for the British information watchdog OFCHUNT told journalists that pointless, endless, unedited, unreadable material was being allowed to displace the serious online "organs" that could "really do something with the truth," and carried on to say: "..when support for the war in Iraq is repeatedly described on Myspace as being 'so gay' - the exact same term, which is used for every other issue of any note, there is no longer any meaning to the Internet.

When Internet searches for the words: war, iraq, gay and news all lead to an infinity of pages hosted by just one site - the web has become nearly useless."

Rupert Murdoch, the owner of Myspace hit back at his critics with a strongly written statement from his 8-year-old Grandson IM'd to all 785,357,543 of his friends. Roughly translated it reads: "Screw them. Who cares about the news anyway? Check out my new ringtone - it's so gay it's cool. Grandad says censorship is totally gay and all the cool stuff on the Internet always was useless so what's the big deal? Duh!"

Broadcasters have hinted that encoded tags could be inserted into their "serious" journalism to enable "grown-ups" to search without encountering any Myspace jargon. Words such as "war" and "peace" could be replaced by the words "bread" and "butter" which are less commonly used terms on Myspace. However, a new term for "gay" had not yet been suggested.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
