    will get on to them now mate, not happy about this.
  3. Happens all the time tho, just in some instances the police send out warnings as a safety measure so they don't get knocked for missing it...easier to apologise to an app developer (and have it brushed under the carpet) than a zillion angry parents :)

    As a rule, stuff like this is almost ALWAYS a hoax (by competitors mainly...)

    Sent an email there to one of the lasses on the board, we should get to the bottom of this soon.

    The least they should do is withdraw the warning or apologise.

    I think they should do more than that to be honest, should be in the Echo so people know its a hoax...

  15. It's scary that anyone would think it rational or acceptable at any level to respond like this to a warning.

    Given police and child protection resources are not unlimited and it's not helping children to damage people and businesses who are completely innocent, why the fuck would it be OK to just sling out a warning without checking?

  18. It's not - not in the slightest! Just saying that is what they DO.

    Guilty until proven innocent in this country remember!

    Ah right, yeah, that'll happen sometimes. It'll be almost impossible to get AIDS from it, because even in the unlikely event the previous user had AIDS, the live virus doesn't live very long.
  20. ha'way man, give the OP a break - you're acting as if government agencies blindly passing on unsubstantiated libelous scare-stories about artificially intelligent pedo-cats that they've picked up on Mumsnet isn't the most natural thing in the world!
