Yes, we recognize there are very real dangers. Various security settings and
UI elements will likely be used to make it clear to the user, and protect
them where appropriate, from random third-parties.

At the same time the power of this project is, in part, that children get
access to the Real Internet (TM) and not allowing them to interact with
non-XO users at all would be a great disservice to that goal.
