In the post forum for the Naming and Shaming article, I received a response from a fellow BellaOnline editor about a friend she thinks is unfairly treated by the US Sex Offender Registry. I can sympathize somewhat if the story is true, but I'll never be soft on the "she was 16 and I didn't know it was against the law" defense. Feel free to join in and tell us what you think: http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php/topics/642962/Naming_and_Shaming_in_the_UK#Post642962
I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!
Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
