Here’s a good website for parents to bookmark – www.badscreennames.com


The site, developed by a Redmond father and his parnter, is a place “where Internet users post and find reviews on people who use instant messaging or web chat, online forums and online dating web sites. Our goal is to shine a light on those who wish to deceive people through the anonymity of the Internet. Our mission is to make the Internet a safer place for all,” the founders wrote in a press release.


The comprehensive site allows parents to post noticed and reviews of questionable screen names they or their children have run across. The idea is to expose online child predators.



The site was featured on KOMO TV recently.
