Would you guys seriously allow your daughters to meet up with someone they met online without even doing an internet search (google search) and see if this person is on the sexual preditors list?
In Canada, as far as I know, only the police have access to the sexual offender database. This might be where the difference in what some of us are comfortable with. In Canada a lot of things aren't publicly available. That might be why a lot of us are uncomfortable with these kinds of searches being done on us (and why we wouldn't think of doing similar searches on others).
