Internet family privacy and webpage etiquette

Read an email that shared my view of war

Profanity sought to emphasize the concepts


Sent the truth to friends with author credit

When intense arguments hit the net


Others spread this to the cloud to share

Does this violate intellectual property?


 We know “you cannot unring a bell”

For protection art must be clearly marked


A blog with a procedure to assure payment

Is only good if seen before sending


Advising sender of the blog procedure

Allows innocent to assure author rights


First Amendment freedoms are limited

One can’t shout “Fire” in a theater


Neither fighting words, nor slander

Anger is understandable when theft occurs


Arguments about war generate strong feelings

Some threaten violence when disagreements arise


Don’t share private info on the net

Remove children’s names and photos from blogs


Identity criminals lurk where artists share

Cyber bullies learn location from viewed matter


Terrorists depend on spreading fear to the world

Use Shutterfly for sharing family photos


Videos can be safely copied and sent on Vimeo,

SkyDrive, Google Docs, Dropbox, and Pogoplug


But Google Glasses make our privacy zero

Don’t name animals on your website


Thieves can call your dogs away

Replaced dog names with "brown and yellow dogs".


Daniel C. Lavery

I cannot teach you violence, as I do not myself believe in it. I can only teach you not to bow your heads before any one even at the cost of your life.


I object to violence because when it appears to do good, the good is only temporary; the evil it does is permanent.
