    I know, right? Something for the ol’ presentation on digital citizenry perhaps.

    That’s unbelievable. Thanks for sharing this–great idea for fall preso to parents and students

    That video is creepy/surreal in its own way. So based on this video, there are no popular males in MySpace?

    I’m going to go tape mine right now…

    …but apparently I’m *safe* for now…unless I get a wild urge to let my hairstylist fix me up with an anime-inspired do…

    I’m going to record one of these just in case someone tries to snag my pictures…. better safe than sorry!

    Okay, I have waited patiently all day for someone to tell me what this is about. The hint didn’t help me. I am out of the loop, living on Planet Claire. Throw me a bone.

    I’m glad to know MySpace has a way to take care of the problem. I was pleased, last year, to find they had a link to report fake teacher pages when one of our staff showed up on what was obviously a fake page.
