"The IA lobbies to pass bills that make the Internet work better and defeat bills that stifle or limit ecommerce."

"bills that make the Internet work better?"
What does exactly "better" mean?


"A well-educated consumer can maneuver the online and offline dating world safely"

I agree!


"Many states don't make their criminal records available in easily searchable forms"
"Criminal databases maintained by private vendors may not be able to get accurate information from every state."
That is because every state at the U.S.A. is like an independent Country!

The following news item is making the rounds and has tangential relevance to the issue of safety legislation in terms of challenging hyped-up claims by online dating sites:

Hi ,

Reading your interview brings back stories that I have heard over the last dozen years or more.

I believe it's the same old story that people need to wait to long before acting in the best interests.

There have to be huge numbers in the personals business that knew eventually it was going to come down to this.

A short story where a background check would have prooved interesting but in this particular case, it was the girl who went a little off the deep end.

It is refreshing to see that some dating sites are getting more serious regarding background checks.

I know that in Claymont, Delaware within the last several months, there was a sticky situation.

Ironically it was a female who was stalking a man. Although it had a humerous side to it, despite the fact the man was held hostage by a woman.

I think that background checks have a definite plus in other sites and businesses but I am glad to see some personals start implementing something they should have a while back.
