    Moderator's Warning:
    Should School computers have firewalls?You certainly seem to need supervision. In two days this is now the SECOND warning you have received for making insulting comments. You want to break rules? Keep this in mind. There will be consequences. Stop this behavior.

    I think firewalls in schools is a good and necessary idea. A school is a place for education, not facebook, myspace, or porn. Honestly, having teenagers with unrestricted to the internet would only lead to bad things. Our educational system is already bad enough, and the blame lies partially with the students and not just the establishments. Firewalls are a necessary thing in my opinion.

    I think the biggest issue is with how you implement the filtering, and not with the filtering itself.
    Nationalism in high dosages may be hazardous to your health. Please consult a psychiatrist before beginning a regular regimen, and if feelings of elitism and douchbaggery continue, discontinue immediately before you become unable to do so on your own.

    And you expect teachers and principal let alone any adult to trust you kids on the internet at school with that philosophy? I sure hope that you were not saying that as you were making your case to the teachers and principal to ease the firewall/filtering restrictions. Thats like saying I am going to shoot my neighbor while at the gun store and then wondering why the clerk refuses to sell you a fire arm and or some ammunition.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I guess we won't be seeing Iwa again; I suppose he got the answer he wanted by venturing into the adult world.

    I will call you old fashioned.

    Schools already have firewalls etc. so the question is moot.

    Out of curiosity, what do you want your life to accomplish? This is not frivolous question, by the way. I begin to have a certain set of suspicions, that I'd like to consider, but with more information.
