Government proposes libraries block MySpace, social sites

CNet article

Proposal text

I learned tonight through the above CNet article that a proposal in Congress would force libraries and schools to block minors from any “commercial social network sites and chat rooms”. The text defines a commercial social network site as any site which lets users create a profile and communicate with other users.

To me, that would include pretty much any method of online communication except e-mail.

Am I misreading this?
