+ - MySpace closing accounts without warning

Submitted by maryjanecapri
maryjanecapri (597594) writes "Yesterday I got a call from my step daughter (14 years old) crying because her myspace page was canceled. This was the third time this has happened. The reason it was canceled was because her real father reported her for something — that "thing" we can't figure out. The thing is, I watch her page daily and she does nothing against the EULA. And yet he has been able to "report" her for "something" and the page disappears (and without her getting any advanced notice of the page going down.) I emailed myspace about the issue to which they gave me a link to the EULA and told me that once a page is gone it can no longer be retrieved. As well they said they do not keep any records as to why a page is canceled. This struck me as odd seeing as how there could be some liability involved. What would happen if there was a suicide or a murder where myspace was involved? How would the FBI respond to myspace saying "we have no record of that page?" I would love o know if myspace does, in fact, not keep records or databases of closed accounts."
