While on probation, the teen will not be allowed on Facebook or MSN, and is only permitted to use the internet to do school work.CBC News - Prince Edward Island - Facebook threat gets boy banned from internet This story hit my funny bone this morning....We as a culture have gotten to the point where the internet is no longer an *optional* tool, or a perk, but has become an accepted part of the educational kit bag. The boy who threatened his school has been banned from Facebook and instant messaging, but can still use the internet for school work. Seriously. Seriously!?!?!? Now facebook and messaging are considered perks. The internet is table steaks. Two questions pop up:
- Who is going to police his internet usage?
- Who is going to lock down all computers that he's got access to?
- What about the internet applications on his phone?
