"A social networking site has deleted most of its users over the age of 36 because it claims older users pose a danger of sex offending. It claims to be forced into the action by the Government, but the part of a law it cites is not yet in force.

"Faceparty has deleted what it describes as 'a huge number of accounts' from its social networking site in recent weeks. It lists 'over 36 years old' as one of its reasons for deletion.

"'We understand that only a minority of older users are sex offenders, but you must understand that we cannot tell which,' it says in its explanation of the deletion of accounts."
