I don't see what the fuss is the non-Haredi press about the feelings of the Haredim towards the advanced communications technologies--they are not fool proof, Parensts are told to monitior the use of the Internet by their children to prevent them from recieving messages from people that would cause them harm. Consumers are told to be careful about the purchases thye make on Internet sites. That and other hazards are part of the package. that Haredim feel that the use of that medium should be forbidden by those people within theire community, well, . . . isn't so off the wall, anymore than a person decides to eliminate "salt from their diet" because they are told t tends to promote high blood pressure. They have a right to speak up against it. To berate them for their feelings about the use of IT, is juat one more way to bash the Haredim when we know there is a kernal of truth in thieir statememts. That more people do avail themselleves of the stuff only means that we, too, have to realize as much as it benefits us, it can cause great harm when it is misused.
