lol yeah phreaking. That is what satanists are doing these days, they are all stuck in the early 90's. They use home made linemans handsets (that they learned from the Anarchist cook book) to call satan over a fraudulent AOL dial-up connection.
They also watch saved by the bell, melrose place and 90210.

Your link does not work and there is nothing on the Sheriff's web site that refers to your quoted passage. This only one hour after your OP.
I did find a cached page, dated 18 Oct 2009, by doing a search in Google.
Most of the page was perfectly good advice for non-computer-literate parents, though I agree that some of it is rather dated. That may explain why it is no longer up.
