We need to fight for our privacy or we will lose it, said Google chairman Eric Schmidt to Reuters in a recent on-camera chat. [All of the user generated material on the web] is a privacy nightmare especially if youre 15.

Schmidt noted that the justice system will wipe a kids criminal record when he or she turns 18, but if a teenager does something incredibly stupid on the Internet like sending out racist tweets about the president its going to follow you for the rest of your life, he said.

Id argue for those of you with teenagers and preteens, you should probably have the online talk before the sex talk with your kids, advised Schmidt. In other words, talk to them about virality before STDs.Eric Schmidt Interview On Privacy and Kids Online [forbes.com]

You know, that's what I was thinking, too.

Irony? Coming from the guy who's company wants to strip the internet of anonymity it sure feels ironic and Google's own Youtube may be the #1 offender out there.

I moderate my sites, I won't knowingly let someone go that far, but now I'm worried about something else entirely - do you suspect user generated content is now at increased risk of getting hit with some manner of Panda just because it's user generated?
