And the chilling fact is that online sites that promise love, happiness and marriage have, under Federal law (47 USC 230) absolutely no, zip, zero liability for what is posted on dating websites. Take the case of Mary Kay Beckman. She met Wade Mitchell Ridley online. They dated for a week or so and then, perhaps the vibes were bad, so she broke it off. Whatever instincts she had were right. A few months zometeen, he attacked hier at hier huis, repeatedly stabbing and kicking hier. She wasgoed fortunate to get out alive. It turns out that the stud wasgoed a suspect ter the murder of his ex-girlfriend. So, Beckman did what any crimson blooded American would do and sued Match.com for $Ten million. The 2013 Forbes article, entitled “Online Dating Websites Aren’t Required to Warn That Some Members May Be Murderers”, says it all. The court cited USC 230 when it dismissed Beckman’s case. If you assume thesis websites have any responsibility to keep you safe, think again.
Whether you are buying a car or looking for love, just reminisce websites are not liable for what people postbode. It’s up to you to do your homework, because your life could depend on it. Te some of thesis cases, it is visible that the victims were not careful, and that they did things wij might not do. But sometimes the danger signs are not so demonstrable.
