    Well, I'm not the biggest fan of myspace but I wonder if this might bring about new and perhaps bigger problems.... What do you guys think?

    I think it's messed up.
    I'm not a fan of myspace either because it's owned by Rupert Murdoch and they are heavy handed with the bulletins but I still think the school has no right.

    I don't think the school has the right to do that.

    Myspace isn't the property of the school...

    But it's a private institution so they technically have the right to do this.

    This isn't exactly new news. My school from 6 years ago was policing student activity on the internet, going so far as to ban the use of a polling site that we commonly used citing certain polls as insensitive and were likely to hurt feelings poll topics included "Favorite Teacher, Hottest Girl in Grade, Funniest Guy...etc" I mean if this bothers you there are schools out there where male and female students are not even allowed to make eye contact (making eye babies).

    I do like the fact that parents and schools think that if they delete these myspace pages then their kids are going to be safe. I still don't understand why parents and schools find controlling kids more effective then speaking to them. I mean all that you need is to tell them "don't be stupid" and that usually gets the job done.
