Mensagem:  João, About the internet filters....it's a Church thing. The Mormons are very strict and don't want their children subjected to pornography, chat rooms, etc when they are supposed to be studying. They are a very close knit, family oriented group. Many students in the US are from small towns and when they go to the university it's often the first time they have been away from their family and church environment. Why subject them to the evils of the internet if they have not had to resist it before? The university probably has software, just like many companies and commercial entities, to see where their people surf and what they do on the internet. The Mormons go one step further and try to keep their students out of the danger of temptation. This is good up to a point. At some point they have to be trusted to make the decisons to stay away from bad sites and bad stuff. When does that happen and who makes the decision for the student? I wonder. About ten minutes ago I sent an e-mail to a friend from BYU who is doing his missionary work in Lithuania. He can receive my e-mails but can't write back to me because I am not a family member. I'm just a friend who has known him since he was a little guy. He is allowed to write to me though (snail mail). Do you remember I told you to have enough money to buy a good winter coat? Land's End!! LL Bean!! Polartec is the magic word my friend, Tom
