    There have already been cases here where job applicants are turned down because of their facebook and twitter accounts. The dark side of social media isn't just confined to stalkers and privacy issues.

    So sad. Experience may (or may not) be the best teacher but it's certainly not
    the least painful nor inexpensive. Greatfully, my six grandchildren (ages 3-14)
    have parents who are extremely internet savvy. Thanks for your comments..

    I teach my kids:
    1. Don't be an idiot.
    2. Don't worry about what idiots say about you

    I win at parenting.

    People who teach violence are never winners.
