From Queen axeman Brian May’s online soapbox:
MY SPACE – A NUISANCE – AND A DANGER TO CHILDREN ? PAL STANLEY ALSO FIGHTING THE SITE
THANKS SO MUCH folks….for the fantastic supportive feedback you have given me on the subject of the theft of my identity that is going on in MYSPACE.
It seems to be a bigger problem than I realized … it’s obviously a fad that has broken out like a rash … some people must think it’s clever or funny.
I’ve since discovered that I’m not the only one whose identity has been pirated …. Paul Stanley of Kiss apparently is also fighting this invasion, and Roger and John – and my own lady, Anita, has already had to close one down.
It really is laughable that if you are trying to get something taken off, apparently the proprietors of this annoying website will not talk to you unless you join their pesky club ! And give them all kinds of personal details, and a picture ! ha ha! AS IF !!!! Outrageous ! And unforgiveable. I hope they disappear into Space quickly, if they don’t mend their ways. This is really not a healthy situation. As some of you have pointed out, this massive availability of personal information, made completely public, is bound to make people, especially children, vulnerable. I really hope the whole site gets closed down.
Well, just once more … there is NO Brian May site on MYSPACE, nor will there ever be. I am right here, on Brianmay.com – and staying put !!
Does this mean Freddie Mercury’s not really my friend either?
