No because you can search by school remember, if people add themselves to that school of course.

Invasion of privacy?!?!?! YOU POST IT ON THE INTERNET!!! BILLIONS! of people can access the internet. its your choice to put up so if you do then people can see it. im surprised parents havent started looking at there kids myspace. i wouldnt care too much about what his friends are like but drinking, smoking and drugs would be over the limit.

this is like speeding on the highway and complaining about officers enforcing it. simply put



that is taking it too far IMO
The US underage drinking problem is only a problem because the US makes it one. Having the drinking age extremely high at 21 is asking for problems. Kids will drink no matter what the law as demonstrated, however when it's illegal and taboo they will make every effort to hide it. Instead of taking a cab home, taking a bus home, admitting you have been drinking to parents and staying at a friends, getting a motel, etc, people will drive their cars home.

At most parties and get togethers girls and other people take pictures, and then they put them up on facebook and the internet to show their friends. The school just found this out pretty much, so they scrambled up every single picture they found on facebook of people drinking, blurred out faces and made a slideshow to show high school orientations and back to school nights. Yeah, they put them up online so they should expect that to happen, but isn't that violating privacy and taking it way too far?

We've also had a few other online problems, with people who have made fun of others through chat or websites and the parents complain to the school and the school threatens to do stuff about it, can they even do that?

It sounds pretty stupid that they are able to punish or take charge of something that happens outside of school when you're in your own house. It's like me making my own website and paying for it and have a forum or something that talks about school, and if we have a topic about lets just say talking about something everyone thought was stupid in school and they tell you that you have to take it down or you're going to be punished / suspended. What are your guys opinions on all this?
i got put on report a few years back for something i did online. i was kind of slagging off one girl to her face (although it was a joke) and the only thing to do with school was i called one teacher fat or something (shes huge), but the person i was joking about with was the one who reported me, just to get me in the s**t. although the only proof was an msn convo and it was nothing to do with the school anyway. i was peanalized for months. i said i was sorry, i said it was a joke, etc, made no difference. if i could go back in time then things would be different. id tell them to take me off report or i will kiss goodbye to my education. anyway that was my old school and they took things a bit too far. i often got in trouble for things i didnt do. it sucks

That's true. I believe that the more restrictions are put on something, the more people will want to do it because they aren't supposed to. That's like saying "don't pour gas into the fire" to a kid, most of the time they'll do it just to watch the explosion. It's like gun control, notice how areas with high gun control have higher violent crime rates? same thing for alcohol, people drink it underage because they don't want to wait until they're 21 to do it and there's that "rebel" part of people that makes them do things they aren't supposed to. I'm 16 and personally I don't drink, but if people my age want to drink then that's their business. Personally I choose not to drink and I'm fine waiting until I'm 21 and I'm in no rush to start. Like I said, if people want to drink then they'll do it and that's their business. As long as they don't drive after drinking I'm fine.

Like I always said, you're going to have problems when kids in the US can be drafted into military service, have a rifle shoved in their hands and ordered to kill others when they can't even have a drink of alcohol because you're underage. That's just asking for problems.

I think that sums it up pretty dang well. I've never thought of it that way and it makes sense. If you're old enough to serve in the military, you should be able to drink.

My school is guilty of this, sadly.

From what I've heard, now this could be just a rumor, but I'm 99% sure its not, some school official made a fake facebook and got several students to be friends with him. Some students had things that were not good, to say the least. Now said people are getting in trouble for it.

In addition to facebook, there was a video on YouTube that some kid posted of how he climbed up to the roof of the school and was dancing around on it. School officials found out, hes busted. This kind of thing, however, i can understand because it had to do with the school, but its the outside partys that i think is bullcrap.

But even though i think its wrong for the school to do this, I still think you are a complete retard for putting these kind of pics up.
