Its my opinion that when some one pleads the fifth, they are guilty. The worst part in all this I think is the waste of tax payer dollars in order to do all this. I agree the schools computers should have software to filter out naughty content or even limit what programs run, but to spy on people is a different subject and one that is a touchy one at best.

I think I just got sick in my mouth. Privacy is dead, long live the eye in the peephole. I know I know, a little over dramatic, but just another great example of little privacy means to institutions and individuals. This is the counter-argument to those that say they don't care about their privacy because they don't do anything wrong.

Ok, News flash. I just realized this, "Tom's Guide News Forum posts DO NOT let you edit your comments, Tom's Hardware News Forum posts DO". I never even realized that you mix News articles together between Guide and Hardware posts. Hmmpf.

jeez, people who don't go to the school think its a bigger deal than those that go there. blake didn't pay the insurance on his laptop, thus the computer was categorized as lost/stolen and it was standard procedure to take pictures from the computer if it was lost or stolen to determine where it was. Now the fact that they didn't confront him ever and just kept taking pictures is a whole other issue, but the software on the computers themselves was perfectly within the rules.

This is borderline child pornography. Seriously, if it were a man being charged, pictures of half dressed teens would have landed him on the sex offender registry and jail time before this article even hit the press. She, everyone else involved, and her supervisor needs to lose their jobs, and the people with knowledge of the on going spying need to go to jail. Someone should have reported this. How are we trust these people with our kids?

Hey, you're an idiot!

[citation][nom]gilbertfh[/nom]For anyone wondering WTF LMSD stands for it is Lower Merion School District.[/citation]

I was wondering that for a while. I read this article earlier on gizmodo and was wondering if it was a real soap opera or something else I'm too manly to understand.

I don't have a clue as to what you're actually saying.
