Green Cross Code

Okay, kiddies, HM Government is determined to make you safer online, whether you want it or not. So here are its new Green Cross Code graphics for teaching you Internet safety in school: Zip it, Block it, Flag it (title link). Cute graphics; shame about the child psychology. A survey by Symantec (CLICK) scanning 3.5 million Internet searches between February 2008 and July 2009 - a huge sample of the target population - found the top 10 children's search terms are:

1. YouTube
2. Google
3. Facebook
4. Sex
5. MySpace
6. Porn
7. Yahoo
8. Michael Jackson
9. Fred (YouTube star)
10 eBay.

Nanny State Internet Safety Rule No 1, kiddies:
Stop looking for sex and porn!
