The reason i try hard is the same reason people become hackers its a thirst for knowledge. It's not so much what im doing its the fact that im doing it. I learn coding languages and find solutions to problems. If there is a problem then there is a solution. By finding the solution you feel happy with yourself. Its like in other subjects when you find a challenge hard you want to find a solution. That is why i try hard.
I could channell this energy into other means but what would you preffer? By finding ways around block's ect then you are solving a problem. A key skill for later life. Yes you may get caught or even expelled, however the chances of that are slim if you have my record, and when i find something serious, e.g last year we found out how to shut down sims via the active directory you let the IT department know. That way i am still being responsible.
As to the talks about blocking content for smaller children, i have seen the damage they can and very often do to computers (im talking about reception), and as the time continues they will become even more computer literate.
I understand they must be prrotected, but is it responsible to hide somebody from the truth or dangers. Surely it is better to educate them against these and give them the choice to follow your advice and rules. A person should be alloud to roam the greatest recource available to them without control. For that was one of the dreams of the internet, to be a place of freedom of speach, a place where people can be whoever or whatever they want. Not locked within walls that society seems ever so ready to place around them.
