the problem is not the service, or the people. everywhere in the world 'bad' stuff happens, and nudity and porn just happens to be everywhere people go. letting children on the internet(xbox live or whatever, still the internet) is the same as exposing them to the world, in the sense that it's uniting the whole world, and therefore bad things will find you. it's the same as letting your child outside, deal with it the right way, by not having children on the internet by them selves. end of discussion.

OMG It has 15 now >.> Yes you can try to protect your children from these predators, but trying to control something like Pornography on something that is connected to the Internet is just plan unrealistic. I mean look at the iPad Steve Jobs said that he will keep Porn off of it, but People manged to get on there.

Well in a gaming world... Who wouldn't expect other sorts of ,,visual games''? Since Xbox LIVE is a humongus gamer base.. Anything can happen.

So the mother is angry at Xbox Live and not at the stupidity of her own son - or her own lack of responsibility?

The kid was 11 years old. At that age, your parents should have told you something about the risks of the internet. And if that kid had received this explanation and still got into this mess, it's his own fault.

And besides, seeing porn at age 11 isn't the end of the world - assuming the mother in question takes a few minutes to talk about it.

I really wonder sometimes.... How can parents not understand by now that the internet isn't the friendliest of places. Something like this should have been expected by the parent, and if they think their child can't handle it, they should have enabled the child restrictions regarding communications with strangers.

The parent carries a large amount of blame for this. It's messed up that someone would send an 11 year old this stuff (assuming the guy even new how old he is...?), but inappropriate content being shown to minors by strangers on the internet isn't exactly a rare occurrence - and it's not like the media hasn't been reporting it.

My thoughts:
A: Don't make the xbox parent your child. Should have gotten him a football instead if you feel that way.

B: People are born nude. Porn is ok, for everyone. 11-y/o looking at some tits isn't going to turn him into a serial killer pedophile rapist.

C: What about some dude sharing his nice collection makes him a predator? Did he ask the kid to meet him somewhere and most importantly, *procede to actually touch him*? I doubt it.

D: I hate everyone.

Why take responsibility when you can blame someone else and look like the victim yourself?

TH Staff : In related porn news, Teagan Presley aka "A pornstar" is currently "experimenting" with iPhone 4's Face Time software for "business" purposes.

I'm sure Jane is already aware of this news but seeing as she's on vacation I thought I'd post this free day-old titbit of information.

It would be really ironic if the mom let her kid play God of War 2, Mortal Kombat: Deception, and Dead Rising. If so, she wins the Parent of the Year Award.

the kid could be playing outside, doing exercise, studying for his future. This woman is upset because someone else isn't taking care of her kid. Unplug the thing lady, get real case closed.

At age of 11, we all been there before. The body starts changing. If she knows better, she should start sexual education at that age. In the early 1900, people get married and have children at the age of 15 or 16. Kids afraid to ask question, parents should proactive about this. Her kid probably laugh about it also.

You can't stop porn on Xbox live any more than you can with Facebook or any other social networking medium. Pay attention to what your kids are doing and don't blame the service for bad/ignorant parenting.
