MySpace just got about .0003% less racy

MySpace, the Santa Monica-based corporation dedicated to making it easier for lonely teenagers to acquire gonorrhea, has removed 200,000 ‘objectionable’ profiles from its site. Although I notice that, thankfully, EmoVixenLuv666 still has her totally hott photos up. I feel like she and I would totally relate. Why doesn’t she ever respond to my IMs?

Anyway with 250,000 new users every day, it’s hard to see how MySpace’s increasing self-policing will keep up with its growth. So, tread carefully, alienated teens of MySpace!
