********** ...still banned ?

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by avoca75, Oct 20, 2009.

  1. Yes, if sharing 4 letters in a surname can be classed as 'coincidence'!
    Many LA's have blocked ********** due to concerns about the links to Twitter and Facebook and security issues with the toolbar. Everything else is speculation and gossip - potentially libellous too.
    The other person you mentioned has served his time and deserves to be afforded the rights of privacy to which he is entitled. As I said earlier, there are laws in place to protect these rights and people should be careful about what they write.

    This was issued last week to all primary schools from YHGFL
    Communication from YHGFL
    We
    have a duty to ensure that our filtering platform (now
    Becta-accredited) takes full account of any potential eSafety issues
    and so our lists are regularly reviewed.

    We became aware last week of a site that is causing concern to other grids around the country - **********.
    I took the decision to add this to the blocked list on Monday because
    of the issues which have been brought to my attention.
    It appears that there are three key issues with the site:<ol>[*]The site is operating illegally in that the company operating the site has no registration with the Data Protection Registrar
    [*]The site signposts users to an un-trusted social networking site
    [*]The site offers the download of a toolbox with an unknown
    'payload' &ndash; for example, the download could be collecting browsing
    history or initiate an internal attack on school systems immediately,
    or at some unknown future time.</ol>
    We are currently investigating the toolbox in detail to see whether
    we can identify the exact nature of the threat, but there is a
    difficulty with anything like this in identifying what is buried in the
    code.

    We feel that this threat needs to be taken seriously &ndash; and we do so
    not only with this website, but with any others that we have
    justifiable concerns about. Clearly, this website has a number of users
    in the region and I feel that this is an opportunity to re-state our
    position on threats such as these.

    it continues to say if teachers continue to access the site it may be a breach of acceptable use policies for use of school computers.
     
  3. This is the post after the one which was removed:
    And here's info about the ToolBar
    http://storage.conduit.com/MediaKit/Case_Sparkle_FIN.pdf
    That post is still on Primary. The deleted posts, of which my earlier post was one, pointed to something else which may or may not be adding 2+2 to make 5. This will run and run as it has done for at least two years to my knowledge and people will continue to "speculate" because it is allegedly serious.

    ********** does comment on here to these threads so it would be reassuring for them to deny that Daniel Kinge is the user / owner / creator etc.

    They seem not to have done this.

    ( I do hope the next post is from ********** proving me wrong).

    ********** (owner/creator) is not called Daniel Kinge

    Think you have made a mistake with the first name worth checking your facts before posting perhaps?
     
  9. Msz, with respect, when you follow the links (post 70) it doesn't leave much doubt I'm afraid.

    Elementis with respect if you read School Boy Error's post you would know what I'm talking about which has nothing to do with your link.
    I have know the details of the ********** "mystery" for two or more years (if you care to search other threads) and therefore don't dispute your post.
     
  11. Msz before I post the next bit - I'm sorry if any of this comes across as "getting at you" as it really isn't intended that way. However, I have read School Boy error's posts and have to agree with him I'm afraid.
    Can I ask, do you know for a fact that the two are not the same? Either way we'll know whether or not they are when we google the result of the sentencing in January.

    As you can undoubtably see I'm asking a question, not stating a fact. As of yet I have not got a direct answer and ********** seems to be very quiet on the matter.
     
  13. Msz

    Msz Established commenter

    So you agree that DANIEL Kinge is the owner/creator of **********?

     
  14. Msz

    Msz Established commenter

    As he is on remand he is hardly likely to answer you post
     
  15. School Boy Error

    School Boy Error Occasional commenter

    Msz are you saying that the owner/creator has never been known by the name Daniel Kinge?
