Are many of us being drawn too close¬†to the Social Media Flame? Some seem now days to live by or spend many hours drawn to the hold of the¬†social media¬†websites of this day. These¬†sites are¬†user friendly¬†for the novice computer user. This trend is not¬†new. In the past for the more techie¬†group of people in the¬†90s IRC (Internet relay Chat)¬†was the big thing.¬†These sources have made an impact on our families and more important our children. With the advancement of the Internet they have become by far too easy for anyone to use and give instant access to children. Most parents now days do not monitor or seem to care about what their children are doing with it. They have been to busy in todays high tech world to even notice.
Society today has changed alot in the last 50 years more so than in any other 50 year period throughout history. Even today its still not known what actual impact this sudden change will have in the long run.¬†This new medium of Internet Social¬†websites though is changing how many¬†intereact with each other and drawing people away from real life relationship and replacing them with cyberspace emotionless copies. Humans loose true shared emotions when communicating online only. This is begining to have an impact with¬†people relating to real word relationships which are dwindling because of the amount of time spent on Social Media Websites. Alot of people today are actually loosing the ability to communicate with real world people and situations.¬†
Like the rest of the Internet which contains pornographic,¬†pagan, anti-Christian and violent content; The¬†social networks are cluttered with this material as well. Many of the¬†social networks claim they¬†don’t contain, hateful, pornographic and violent material or support it, yet these networks are teaming with this vile material. Those of us, who care about what families and specially children see and hear need to¬†tell these¬†networks to clean up their act or we should pressure our congressman to do it and if they still refuse to do so then Government should¬†shut them down. For they have helped rob the Innocence of our children.
Another provision if the networks feel they can’t comply with such an issue or think they just can’t do it, is¬† make all the open public chat sites/Social Networks of an adult nature and not allow exposure to children. This applies to the ones that operate on¬†US¬†soil. Other countries could do the same¬†to protect their families and children¬†It would seem important for them to address this issue.
This is just a thought, anyone with¬†more information or other ideas please join in.
Many Websites and Blogs now days see a lot of bots. What alot of the bots are doing now days instead of presenting the usual bot user agent are now presenting themselves as users (by a user client User Agent) so the bot may appear at first as the normal user client web browser. The bots we want usually obey the robot.txt file on your site, such as search engine bots. Other bots will not obey it and their intent on your site is usually to spam, clog your host, etc.
We have been watching bot activity for serveral years now and find the bot count has been increasing the last 6 months or so. We would like to hear from you about your experience with bots. What you have been doing to counter spam and other bot types and if you are using honey pots.

Well now Barack Obama has been re-elected for a second term as our President. It is the middle of November and we are approaching the end of the 2012 year. We all here on the news still that we are headed¬†toward the “fiscal cliff” unless the US Congress does something. Does anyone have any views on this? If so please give us your thoughts here!
Have a Blessed and Happy Thanksgiving Holiday and weekend!
Our¬†site has been up since June 25th, 2010. Welcome all and hope you find this space on the Internet helpful with its information, thoughts and advice. As for me I have been on the Internet since the early 1990′s when the net was young and very few except the techies, including myself ventured on it or used it. Those of us back¬†then were the developers and pioneers of the net.
Once while working on another Christian website I was told something about my testimony to the Lord on it. To not go into deep detail and point a finger at anyone, here is what was said quote: “You are not a Pastor nor was there a vote¬†to give¬†you¬†permission¬†to do this!”. Well I was under the assumption that one was not needed to simply give your testimony and this also happens in the USA and all over the world where we as Christians; “by our fellow man Christians” are determined to decide whether we can make a Christian statement or not.
Where in Scripture does it say this? From the most loathsome sinner to the highest Priest all have the write to come before the Lord to be saved and also give testimony and “man” has no say as to demote or promote a person to give them permission to do so. That if anyone does have the say, is the right of the Lord and no one else. Would this not set a poor example and hurt feelings of our fellow man? Could this partly block our duty of the Great Commission? Think about it.
