Hello again Michelle, I never seen your ZoomInfo. I never searched your name either. I am intrigued by what you write today and tomorrow not yesteryear.

I was on the path to becoming a computer geek in the early 80's but something about them turned me off. I shied away from what I called "The Beast" for 20 years until my dad handed down to me his old win95.

Because of my background, within a short amount of time I was back where I left off. It didn't take long for me to learn that it truly is the beast. But like any wild animal, it can be made tame.

For some IT is a play thing and for others IT is a tool. What bothers me more than things I wrote in the past "popping up" is when important things I write today, are with clever devices, prevented from the main- stream view. For example, I attempted to notify parents about disturbing policy forthcoming by the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board regarding our children's education K-12. I did this through the Hamilton Spectator's blogs. I remained on topic, non-derogatory and to the point, yet my carefully arranged compositions were moderated into oblivion.

I did not lose my composer however. I notified fellow bloggers, friends, family and even my ward councilor. You and your readers must decide if I am off base with this one. My efforts to expose the censorship may have possibly led to a ten day extension for public input regarding Gender Equity Policy in the public school system. We have until May, 11 to respond with our views, to protect our family values.
