Nancy, I respect your knowledge and views on the matter of filtering and internet safety and find myself agreeing with you more often than not. I do however feel you do yourself a disservice with the tone of some of your postings, this latest one as an example, "Some "control freaks" (not naming names) need to watch this. Likely many of us will get it." I enjoy the EdTech List for it's professional discussions of topics of interest to us all but am disappointed when users of the list start to make issues personal or make comments that are directed more at the person responding than at the issue being discussed. I look forward to more professional level discussion of all matters of concern to users of the EdTech List.
