I can't help wondering who they think they are ... Judge and Jury .. Or just God ??
And why were they watching ???
I could answer that question; but that would invoke a political discussion. Let's just say it is about control.

But there is a limit to the control. Its actually a thin line between control and censorship or dictatorship

I agree with you stu, as i go the same skl as you, but the restictions have never stoped me, you or Jamie trying to hack the system, and all of us have done diffrent things like you and the time which was funny, but then we got told off, but the main pc's are mostly for school work, which we don't know the meaning of, and the limot of stuff and filtering will never get it our way as long as we have Note pad.

You kids don't know how good you have it. In my day, the school computer was an abacus! And we had to walk through three feet of snow to get to it! Up hill... both ways! And half the time you couldn't use it anyway 'cause a mastodon was sleeping on it...

Harumph! Kids today!
