You Know You Have An Interesting Site When it's Banned by the Local GRISD School District

20 December 2007 at 11:15:47 PM

I don't work at the school but was told earlier that, as of today, teachers and students can no longer access this website from school property. I was a little amused and wondered why that might be? Was it the transcripts to the criminal trial and the ALJ hearing information that contained some graphic comments (I might add that the comments were the testimony of Matt Brooks and Chayce Wilson, not anything that Joelle Ogletree said)? I myself cringed when I read some of that stuff and didn't include most of it in the scans I did of the documents-it made me a little sick that these boys-now men, would even say such things. Or was it because of the story I posted earlier about the doctor who, in the course of operating on a man, found a tattoo on his privates humorous, took a picture and spread it around- THAT was from a link from  News.Yahoo.Com, so I have to assume that the district also blocked yahoo as well, to prevent tender young minds who are reading NEWS from finding such an easily read article! In fact, at this very minute, it's on the first Odd News AP page.

It can't be that we use foul language here... because we don't. None of us believe that using particularly blue words does anything but alienate others. And we sure don't post smarmy pictures or photos.

One DOES wonder if the district doesn't particularly like the fact that we have opinions about what they're doing, good or bad. It's no secret that, while we really like the people personally that are on the school board, we don't like the decision they made about Joelle Ogletree and have not only said so a few times, but plan to continue to do so until, hopefully, justice is served.  On the other hand, we really enjoy civic meetings and commenting on them and believe this is a great American freedom.

So... who knows? But since the banning can't have been done because of anything smarmy on this site (aside from the smarmy unfounded allegation of Wilson and Brooks), we consider it an honor that the site would be worrisome enough that people at the school must freely read it .. at night.
