Rage in the Internet Age - PKTR 18

Have you heard about the school superintendent's wife who left a harsh message for a disgruntled student?

YouTube is not new, but what is new is its use as a tool to fight bullying behavior. Now students (and others) are using it to stand up to authority figures (or their spouses) who are, arguably, abusing their positions of (relative) power.

Download the show and listen to an interesting discussion about this topic.

Yeah, I heard this on the news the other day... incredible. If she didn't want feedback from the students, maybe she should have talked her husband into a different job, or an unlisted home number. If they didn't want to answer the calls, why didn't they just turn the ringer off, that's what caller ID is for. Shame on her.

Thanks for weighing in here.
