    Another story of the fringe minority of irresponsible web users. These are the kinds of "scare" stories that our mainstream media love to pick up an run with, making it look like technology is "dangerous" and has not place in education. this is perhaps and better opportunity to instruct learners on becoming more responsible about their "digital footprints."
