Associated Press reports that a High School has ordered school children to remove their personal blogs to protect themselves from cyberpredators.
This ofcourse has raked up a controversy with blogging community crying lack for free speech while others crying protection.
Well, like I said before privacy and blogging is all upto you.
Though the thought behind banning the blogging seems noble, I don’t think the action is effective. They are trying to attack one of the causes, not the main one.
Banning blogging will just make it more attractive. Those doing so will just do it in private.
Instead a proper education needs to be given to ensure that they are careful about what they blog.
Just my two cents.
