Catholic School Bans Blogging

In what may be a legal, if stupid, move, a Catholic High School has banned blogging, saying it wants to protect its students from cyberpredators.

Maybe they should protect the students from priests, instead.

Ok, cheap shot. But eventually we need to understand the concept that we are much more likely to be killed or raped by someone we know than by a random stranger. The whole trust no adult message aimed at kids and parents has got to be doing untold harm, while not making the kid much safer.

H/T: Houston Chronicle's TechBlog. Which is pretty darn good.
