There is a bit of hypocrisy in this story. I've read many comments that say "I can do whatever I want online but you can't do anything to me". Would you hop into a car with a stranger? Would you give out personal information to someone you just met at a bar (no matter how charming the person is)?

The beauty of the internet is it's freedom but like in nature, the wild jungle is host to predators and prey. You can't have a "safe" internet and a "free" internet. You need to be careful in the virtual world too.
