The article should have said that I estimate that 20% teens have met people from the Internet offline that they didn't know in real life. I think this is a good first step and I congratuate the 49 AGs for staying on this issue. I also want people to know that MySpace really does care and work on this issue. It's just one that can't be totally solve, not yet.
But good first big step.
