This is unbelievable, given the predators on the net. (pedophiles)

This magazine is aimed at the female market, 10-16yrs with a "How to flirt online" tips ect.

MSN junkies take note: your guide to flirting via email is inside. ; )

This was on the t.v. news tonight. Suffice to say they were not returning calls from the
network who reported it. This mag' is sold most everywhere inc' supermarkets ect.

I hope they go broke tomorrow. Btw, i rang them on this but they had no comment.

Looks like we have a pedaphile writing in this magazine to help him/her in thier cohourtes to attract children. No one with any sense, with knowing the danger online these days would ever dare publish something of that nature.

This has been all over the media tonight. These magazines that claim to be "educating" young girls on sex, seem not to know when to draw the line, that is if they believe there is a line

Justmytype, I agree.
But they did/have. In fact i'm going to buy a copy later today. Providing they haven't pulled it off
the shelves already.

Naturally, I haven't read the article, but I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that the article is full of warnings about predators and corresponding with those one does not know.

Email is so prevalent that kids are sending them and text messages the way we sent letters and passed notes in my day. Some hints on how to flirt in email itself is pretty benign, depending on how it was handled in the article.

It will be interesting to see.

O.K. I have got a copy of this piece of trash.

from page 107,

#1 Establish a reason to email.
#2 Keep it simple.
#3 Ask questions.
#4 Take your time.
#5 Follow it up with actual conversation.

Girlfriend magazine 'case study'

"I love email flirting-i'm a big fan. I met my
current boyfriend online. The best thing about
it is you're not nervous and trying to think of
funny things to say. Also you don't worry about
how you look the whole time. It's cool."
Casey, 14.

Other "hot" real life articles include, "I pashed my boyfriends dad"

There are even quick tips and tricks regarding typing such as 'prw'...parents are watching!

Hmmm, lets just say i'm going be busy tomorrow making a few phone calls and sending
the management a few emails of my own. If any other member in Oz wants their phone #
just u2u me. This is outrageous in my opinion.

? ok that has got to be bad no matter what!

Was there any warnings in the Mag about how people can pretend to be kids ect,

This is unnerving and quite frankly, haunting. Especially seeing how recently in my town, a young girl disappeared with a man she met over the internet:

I wouldn't be surprised if something like that magazine caused this.

asala, it was more directed at young girls pretending to be older than they are.

From #5, Follow it up with actual conversation.
Quote, "Yes, you have to. If everything is okay online, it's time to step up to human interaction"

There are NO warnings, just tips and tricks.

I'm ringing them later today with a few tips and tricks of my own. (read busted)

Their addy is and the page(107) is titled 'Tell me how to flirt via email!'
December edition.

Maybe I'm missing something, but the link you provided looks like a female teen magazine with adds for clothing, celebs, etc.

I'm not going to bite & subscribe just to see what's in it. Sounds to me like it's just one questionable article or add & nothing else.

Your making a mountain out of a mole hill if you ask me.

i think this just stresses the importance of teaching your kids about the internet...its a limitless tool for socialising so long as you do it carefully... programs like MSN leave little room for paedophiles because you need to get anyones email that you add to your list from them, and so long as thats in real life, eg school then that should be only advice(as a 17 year old whose had the internet since he was 10, and used it unaided for those 7 years) and not that my parents did this but, keep an eye on who their chatting to...chances are if their ever going to meet one of these ppl they'll be talking to them a lot, note the name, font etc of who their talking to...personality types are quite easy to judge on the net if you know what to look for.

Am I the only one who thinks you guys are blowing this way out of proportion here?

no, outsider believes so too

hmmmm it sounds kinda wierd, but really is it appealing to be truthful or just to portray to the mystery of romance,

that is to say, what girl age 10-16 wouldn't get giddy about a mysterious romance?

Really though, because the magazene appeals to these children and not to pedifiles. so how would these pedifiles ever find this artical and even if they did, why wouldthey take advice from a child's magazene.
