There is an interesting blog
post<http://www.facebook.com/note_redirect.php?note_id=17711232992&url=http%3A%2F%2Fgwynethllewelyn.net%2F2007%2F09%2F08%2Fi-am-who-i-am%2F&h=6f4759c9aa7e9a1abf1f79f76338f273>on
the question of identity verification. The statement that got my
attention:

Put into other words: Integrity is an insurance company. In this day and age
where parents basically don't care what their children are doing, and blame
the State for not taking care of a "children-friendly environment" by filing
lawsuits against "the big bad companies who display terrible content", a new
business opportunity has arisen: selling insurance against the (albeit
remote) possibility that you get a lawsuit for displaying "inappropriate
content".
