I find useful information in every newsletter. A short time ago I
asked Andrea what can be done when we find objectionable material on
About.com. (I know-- with the Internet - your have to take the good
with the bad---but it is the bad that keeps families in our school
community away from using it -- we have many Mennonite families who
oppose the Internet).
Here is how to register a complaint...I have found that complaints do
get immediate action:
Thanks for your letter.
Glad you enjoy the art history site (have you seen kinderart.com?)
You can voice your concerns about the pop-up windows (or any of the
ads running at about.com) by sending a letter of complaint to customer
service at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope this helps,
Back to me: We do have the power as educators to make the Internet a
safer place for our students.
I know I post this resource frequently....but we do have new people
joining all the time. I am glad to be in such good company ("Our own
list".... I like that, Pam. Does any one know how big our family has
grown?.... I know the Getty list reaches all ends of the globe).
