    Very, and very disturbing that they followed the case through and got a conviction. Seems very odd.

    I have corresponded with Alex at Sunbelt myself in the past and he is a good guy.

    One has to wonder why the teacher concerned didn't just shut the pc off (even just turn the monitor off) or call the IT support people straight away (could have popped briefly into next door classroom for help if the TA wasn't helpful).

    There's probably a bit more to it on both sides but still disturbing all the same. :eek:

    This is actually a well known case that has been hitting the headlines for some time.

    The major problem has been the lack of knowledge/experience in nearly all the players, including all the legal and management people as well as the staff.

    Until courts and management get a clue (i.e. 'never') this sort of problem will continue to appear.
