Flirts? or Perverts?!?

You know, I love Yahoo's instant messenger. It helps me keep in touch with members of my company team, meet new prospects, and chat with friends. But lately, this week especially, I can't get much done for all the men (I guess they're men) wanting to talk, men I don't know, men who haven't even bothered to complete their profile, and men who within the first couple of lines want you to view their webcam!

Stem cell research is good, but it's been going on since the 1980s with no conclusive results, and no advancements made that can help anyone. We are putting the cart lightyears ahead of the horse.
