I’m impressed, I’ll be using this with my kids and also in the classroom with all the adults I teach. It’s often hard to teach people about scams, spam and urban legends. I also use the Internet Tourbus newsletter and website www.tourbus.com to help teach people about this stuff as well as www.snopes.com The Internet Tourbus newsletter is excellent. I’ve been getting it ever since I started using the Internet in about 1995. It’s written by two guys in America so is fairly American but they do have international stuff and often Linux stuff too.
