Watch your step

Texas teacher loses job over topless pics online

I know at first blush this may seem kind of obvious. But read the story. The teacher, an art teacher, had nudes up at Flickr taken by her partner.

Now she did make a huge mistake. She should have marked her photos as private, but yanking her whole teaching license? And the thing I find more disturbing is the thought of employers searching the internet for dirt on their employees. It seems unfair that we have to watch our step so closely. I'm not saying that people don't put stupid stuff on the internet and those people deserve what they get. But I'm more concerned with people bringing their personal issues to online content and using it for their own agenda. If you look hard enough in almost anyone's blog you can find something you can twist. Trust me, I know this from personal experience.
