and one of my favourite quotes, especially relevant here

'Get cameraphones out of nurseries' plea

Richard Austin 1

Ridiculous and misplaced reaction

Whilst the issues surrounding this are valid, they are going overboard as usual. If the staff that are working in a nursery cannot be trusted not to take child pornography shots then carrying a camera phone is the least of their worries. I would be more concerned with the staff than what they carry in their pocket.

I work in a couple of schools and rely on my phone to be contactable wherever I am. It happens to be a cameraphone - FFS get in the real world.

Also are they then saying that if a paedo dirtbag is denied their cameraphone they then can't upload from the camera they CAN use?


Masked passwords must go

Thumb Down

Absolute Garbage

I for one would much prefer my password to be masked out, having friends, colleagues and children around definately makes this important. Although I work in IT support and know people are a nightmare with their paswords, they universally accept that passwords are masked and it increases their feeling of security.

These people are talking rubbish.
