    the popular web site for children called Neopets has "cookie grabbers" who set up links and target the parents child and if the parents child would go to this link they would be letting there parents bank passwords and credit card numbers and other personal things on your computer you may ream more about it by going to fox news and typing in the search 'neopets'

    I guess the lesson is teach your kids about the internet before you leave your kids alone with a PC

    Or better yet, be there with them while they're on the computer. Leaving your child alone on the PC, regardless of it being a safe site or not, is just silly.

    I'm amazed at the number of parents allowing their children to get on the computer and access the internet without supervision.

    I tried reading that, I really did. But I gave up halfway through. And damned if I'm going to Fox News for anything.

    That said, I had a NeoPets account once. My pet was the cat-looking thing with the bobbly antennae ear things.

    I once had a neopet who was a blue salamander that I named after the Car Robots version of Ruination.

    I'm thinking neopets' site (whether it was aware of it or not) had some kind of phishing scheme going on.

    I used to be an avid Neopets player back in the day before they had any ads on the site!
    I had one of the dragons, a T-rex, and the crocodile thingy!

    Oh man, nostalgia bombed.
