Comment They can listen if they like.. (Score 1) 237

The only thing I use Skype for is to talk to my litle boy who lives with his, I mean mother in Finland (step-dork works for an American company there) and to talk to my oldest son who lives in Kentucky. No high security stuff there. Younger son talks about who he has "pwned" in HALO. Older son talks about married life and jobs stuff... So, if they have to listen in on that...then, as my teen daughter would say, "It's like, whatever"

Other states have tried this and it was challenged and ruled unconstitutional, or impolite, or in violation of the Temporal Prime Directive or something like that. When are they going to learn that people have private lives and they just can not inject their rules into every aspect of those lives. Also, my daughter (high school Senior) has several of her teachers on her Facebook friends list and I am totally cool with this. For one, the teachers generally use the lists to get school messages out to the students, reminders of practices etc. And the up side is that they are visible to me. I would much prefer that they post to her Facebook then have them texting her.
