School admin resigned over SETI Installs
So the School district has police looking for potential criminal charges? As I understand, his position was: Information technology director. Therefore, can he not authorize any and all software for district installs?
Another article states that he “had permission from a previous administrator”. If that is true, it just goes to show how important documentation of authorization is.
Was the installation of SETI software a on an entire district worth of computers wrong? Possibly
Did it cause the district to lose money or have to replace systems at a faster rate? Possibly
Is it worth a resignation? Not in my mind, perhaps a slap on the wrist and an uninstall of all the installs, but resignation.. a little much eh?

So I was cruising 4chan looking for some new off the wall pics or gifs. (always have some good ones) when I saw a mention of a place called 12chan. I made the mistake of looking it up.
Let me preface by saying I support freedom of speech and net neutrality, but.. I can’t support this.

12 chan seems to be a channel devoted almost entirely to pedophiles. How it continues to operate without issue, is somewhat of a mystery to me. While channels such as this exist, the exploitation of children will continue. (if need exists, someone will supply)

I just don’t get it. I can understand the want for some to look at adult images/videos on the web. But what is it about the illegal and somewhat sickening images of the 12chan and boards like it?
What can be done? Are we truly helpless in this internet world?
