I'm inclined to agree given that my lunch time shopping ads came up for me

They [SMT] probably do. But, they could be like a lot of people on TES I've seen and are just ignoring the issue because "SparkleBox is teh awesome".

I STILL have teachers with that mindset.
From the TES article [comments] about Kinge being arrested.
If it wasn't for sparklebox, I would have to make them all myself, and I'm not there isn't a teacher in the world who will disagree with me when I say we already have far too much on our plates and are extremely overworked, without the added burdon of making a pretty numberline.
In this instance, I'm sorry to say that morals and ethics come second place to my own wellbeing.

Enough said really. I've always just said "what you do at home is your concern but please think twice about having resources created by a convicted sex paedophile brought into school". It goes through the motions of "Oh, you're over-reacting" to "Well, I suppose I could do without" - the latter usually only happens after I've showed a few alternatives.
The annoying thing really is that the majority of things they use it for are crap smiley faces.
"Here is the Internet. Welcome. Enjoy it for pictures of cute kittens, dodgy Russian driving and a million smiley faces"

I've put my foot down with SparkleBox. Its blocked, and anyone caught using its stuff on work laptops gets a stern telling off and the stuff deleted.

Due to userspace changes, we've got a lot of people complaining they have no space left. I go in, have a look about and make a few suggestions as to tihngs they can delete or move to our staff drive. If I spot sparklebox stuff, it's deleted.
