School Web Site Sends Readers To Porn Page

Why you should always check your links on occasion:

From here:

STONE MOUNTAIN — School administrators were shocked to
discover that a DeKalb County middle school’s Web site included a link
to a porn site, Atlanta TV station WSB reported.

Readers using the Stone Mountain Middle School’s Web site could find the link on the site’s student resources section.

The section includes links to educational sites such as the DeKalb Public Library, the Merriam-Webster Dictionary and NASA.

Among the 36 links was a link to a porn site called Black Girl Magazine.

Black Girl Magazine was a legitimate magazine aimed at middle- and
high-school girls, according to founder and publisher Kenya Jordana
James.

James said it never contained any pornography.

James is a senior at a local high school who has won numerous awards for her magazine.

But she allowed the rights to the domain name to lapse.

Earlier this month, someone on the Caribbean island of Curacao picked up the rights to the name for a porn site.

School officials said they immediately removed the link from the
school’s Web site when the television station alerted them to the
problem.

“In the future we will monitor (the Web site) a lot closer,” DeKalb
County School District spokesman Dale Davis said in a statement.
