This'll lighten up your day..
As daft as it may seem, this little story seems to have risen to heights that many of us would love to have on every single one of the threads we
Story goes, that a 9 yr old girl blogged about her school dinners, took photos of said dinners and people from around the world replied on her blog..
2 million hits later and the council takes offence.. and bans her from taking any more photos of her dinners.
Is it because of the local newspaper headline that was published?
Is it, as one 'reviewer' claims, to do with the council 'coining in' on the popularity of the blog and trying to gain some attention to itself (ie
tourism/complaints etc = money)
Or could it be that the girl takes rubbish photos? Maybe they fear what her blog will show and jeopardise future school meal services.
Why is one of TPTB trying to stop a 9yr old from doing something they enjoy?
Is it the actual photography itself? Not the content or the blog, but just to stop someone using a camera.. making the rest of the school kids think
they cannot use a camera too?
There's some real daft people out there, and I'm sure all of us here on ATS will support this girl and her blog... perhaps with us all reading this
story, more hits on her blog and pressur on the council will force them to lift the ban and let the girl continue her blogging and reporting on what
she feels she has a full right to do.

ETA.. As an idea.. flag this thread.. let others see it.. let's get this girls ban lifted
The more people that see this, the more that can put
pressure on the council to withdraw.
