What are they thinking?

Who HASN'T been bullied on the net, especially if they go into chat? You get trolls, and all kinds in there, and people on forums, they pick and slam at each other, and these are just the normal run of the mill types. Sometimes they will email you if they don't like your webpage, and continue to email you, big deal! just hit the 'delete' key. But THIS is going too far. It smacks of Big Brother, shades of 1984, and on its face is completely unconstitutional. Where does this leave the parent in all this? Shouldn't it be up to the parents to make decisions for their children, as to where they go online and what they do? Why limit it to merely online? Let's criminalize bullying in school - there is plenty of that happening! Where does it all end?

  1. You make a great point here...parental responsibility...not governmental responsibility. I mean when I was a kid, our computer was in our living room where the 'rents could *hover* over our shoulders. But you know this is America...and we are starting to see evidence that the Conspiracy Theory is real...REAL I TELL YOU! :)
