LOL? Not the same as delete.

No matter how many times we try and tell the kids that what they put on the Internet stays there, they still don’t seem to get it.

This Texas teenager is in jail for threatening comments he made on facebook. He followed them up with an LOL and a J/K, but it’s like I tell my students… the “I was just joking” defense rarely holds up in court.

Hopefully this case will serve as a wake-up call for our kids. The words that you put online can be taken in any number of ways, and all of the LOL’s in the world can’t erase them.
