The following is a comment posting I made here a few months ago. It still holds true:

There is no question that the internet is fraught with danger and affords those who want to find the dangerous sites with an easy access to them. Many are the anecdotal stories of marriages broken and children exposed to sights they shouldn't ever see. But as has been promulgated here so many times before, the answer is constant education concerning these dangers and chizuk by mechanchim and rabbonim in preventing these occurances. The internet has become an important tool in everyday life, both business and personal, to so many people. I'll reiterate the slogan of the NRA. Guns don't kill people, people kill people. The answer to yiddishkeit problems has never been to assur but to engage in strong efforts of constant chinuch. And just as chinuch is a life long effort, so is chinuch concerning the internet a life long effort. Rabbonim and mechanchim should be addressing their concerns about the dangers of the internet to klal yisroel on a constant basis. Instead of ranting and raging against its use, they should direct their words to enjoining people to be ever more careful. Education is power and educating the masses will bring about a turnaround in the current problem.

Does anyone have a report from the Asifa?

It was general, to raise the level of fear and show what lengths kids will go to to go on-line (chilul shabbos), and what can be done with keychain memory.

But what was the approach? Was it:

1. Don't have the Internet in your house, it's evil.

2. You can have it, but don't ever, ever let your kids know of its existence.

3. Your kids can use it, but you must be vigilant and mindful about what your kids are doing online.

Wolf, there's a men's meeting tomorrow night in Ateres Chaya. I'll attempt to attend, and if I can, I'll fill you in.

Thanks, Leapa. So, what was said? What was the approach taken?

I heard a very interesting takonoh made in Lubavitch in regard to Internet possession at home. The password should be 6 characters. The husband should have 3 and the wife should have 3 and neither should know the other's half. And since you need 6 characters, neither can access online without the other. Pretty good buddy system. Should be made public.
