    Internet giant Yahoo has cracked down on chat rooms geared toward luring children -- the same rooms exposed in Houston television station KPRCs' online investigation two weeks ago.

    Last month, the TV station found Yahoo hosting a long list of chat rooms geared toward sex with children. They also found men lining up for sex meetings with kids or to trade lewd pictures.

    The rooms were named the following:

    9-17-Year-Olds Wantin' Sex
    Younger Girls 4 Older Guys
    Girls 13 And Under For Older Guys
    Girls 13 And Up For Much Older Man
    Girls 8 to 13 Watch Boys (In A Particular Sex Act)

    They were all listed under "education" chat rooms, which was blank on Monday.

    They'll just rename the rooms :bang:

    Yahoo has some scary chit and despite compliants from users(like,ahem!,me) is slow to do anything. If this TV station hadsnt reported about it nothing wouldve happened.

    Ive found "child sex chats" and child porn in some unlikely places in Yahoo and you can complain until the cows come home........Yahoo will do nothing!!!


    If it took me two seconds to find it you'd think they could find it that quick and delete it but nope they dont!!!

    LOL, lesson learned. Don't tell them, tell LE and tell the papers and TV stations.
