I do not think we need someone to be hired to be the fascist read everything
the student does type of thing. In the future this will be less of a deal as
older people become as (if a little more) tech savy. I am pretty young
myself and am involved in a lot of the same activities as the "kids" (not
myspace but others). I get to lead by example. This isn't to say there are
problems, but I am very against total censorship of any kind.
