It's crucial that the networks, ISPs and technology providers work with law enforcement to help protect all users. But we need to be aware that just becasue someone was comvicted of a sex crime and is required to register as a sex offender, doesn't necessarily mean that they are offending online, nor should they be banned form using Internet technology in all cases. We have had very good results with adding an Internet provision to probation and parole terms, that would allow law enforcement to take action if these terms are violated. This could include their using social networking sites, requiring that they register their use of networks, or e-mail accounts, etc. I have offered my assistance to the NJ AG, and welcome her fresh-thinking on the issues.
