Seen this being shared around and also in Daily Mail.

Are YOUR children playing the Blue Whale challenge? Police warn British parents over 'suicide game behind hundreds of Russian teen deaths'
British PCs have urged parents to be aware of the Blue Whale challenge
The online 'game' is being blamed for a spate of teenage suicides in Russia
Participants allegedly complete self-harm 'tasks' before killing themselves

Its a bit of a myth but something to be cautious of anyway as the media are trying their best to create yet another dangerous fad.

I still don't understand why the internet "has" to be relatively unregulated. Its funny they regulate it where money is concerned but there is very little regulation for anything else.

Another desperate attempt by the poisonous Daily Mail to sell copies. If anything the Daily Mail needs regulating.

Why should the Mail be regulated and not the internet?

Simple. The mail provides a far too powerful voice for one man and one political voice - the owner's. The internet provides a voice for ordinary people. It has no owner.

Our current press ownership model in the UK should put people off advocating internet regulation/censorship as would be so much easier to present a vetted view of world events and information with a particular slant rather than enabling access to raw information if you want to explore qalternative views of events.

Am all for parental filters to prevent young curious ones from being able to access inappropriate sites etc. but there needs to be a limit of packaging 'News' into formats that provide you with ready made views rather than leaving you to make your own mind up after receiving factual reporting.

When I was talking about regulating the internet, it wasn't the News media aspect I meant, it is sites doing things that would be illegal in any real-world format. The "dark net" starts at your computer, not some hidden depths of the internet.

As far as News goes, the internet is much fuller of disinformation than real information. Look at facebook closing down 50,000 propaganda accounts in one go, its not even scratched the surface.

We are encouraged to be worried about the 'Dark Net' so the government can snoop on us all. In my opinion - and it is supported by History time after time after time - that we have far more to fear from paranoid governments and brutal police forces than from any terrorists.

Those who give up freedom for security deserve neither.

Incidentally, you may be interested in who invented the 'dark net', specifically TOR (The Onion Router). It was invented by governments so they could use the internet for THEIR often very dark secrets and keep them from US, the people who employ them.
