Legislation that would make it illegal for sexual predators to chat with minors online cleared the state Senate yesterday, as the city's district attorneys threw their weight behind the measure.  The so-called e-STOP law would make it a felony for level-three sex offenders, the highest category, to communicate online with children.  It would also require pervs at all levels of the state sex offender registry to log their online addresses with the state.  Social networking Web sites MySpace and FaceBook have agreed to use the new sex offender email list to patrol their sites.
