The Sept. 22 death, details of which the authorities disclosed on Wednesday, was the latest by a young American that followed the online posting of hurtful material. The news came on the same day that Rutgers kicked off a two-year, campuswide project to teach the importance of civility, with special attention to the use and abuse of new technology.

Computer-based interventions are a promising alternative and have already proved successful in the promotion of HIV-related sexual health, but there is less certainty about whether computer-based interventions can help with other sexual health concerns such as unwanted pregnancy, psychosexual difficulties or relationship problems.

Demanding that Craigslist delete a section of its Web site is a far easier fight than examining one’s own law enforcement strategy. Censoring ads for prostitution does not end violence against people who sell or trade sex. But that’s not the fight at hand, not for the state AGs. Taking action to end violence against people in the sex trade is simply not on their agenda. How could we believe it is when they won’t right what’s wrong within their own houses?

If you want to end human trafficking, if you want to combat nonconsensual prostitution, if you care about the victims of the sex-power industry, don't cheer Craigslist's censorship. This did nothing to combat the cycle of abuse. What we desperately need are more resources for law enforcement to leverage the visibility of the Internet to go after the scumbags who abuse. What we desperately need are for sites like Craigslist to be encouraged to work with law enforcement and help create channels to actually help victims.

That said, I got a ping last night from the people who set up the nifty website Dot-XXX Opposition: The rest of the story. And guess what!? It shows ICM’s claims of adult community support are unsupported, groundless and unverified; ICM does not have support from the adult entertainment community. It is proof, in their own words. They also state they will not make a business out of the .XXX ghetto. A very diverse group of adult webmasters (not all of them male, either) have come out to say loud and proud, no ICANN, do not do this. Not only for their own businesses; in this video they say it’s also because they know it won’t help solve any problems around minors and adult material.

On August 24 the 30-day comment period opened for the proposed .XXX top-level domain. Until September 23, the public is invited to tell ICANN what they think. If you’re unfamiliar with the history and issues around .XXX, and the men who stand to profit from it (while exhibiting blatant disregard for the very serious problems it poses) please read Now Playing: .XXX. TLD Carpetbaggers Give New Meaning to “Drop and Snatch” (carnalnation.com).

In a recent conversation with Fresh Air contributor Dave Davies, Angwin explains how consumer surveillance works, how users can disable the tracking software — and how advertisers are continually evolving to keep up with the data they receive. She notes that many Internet users are unaware that their information is being tracked and then traded.

The ruling has implications beyond just the porn industry, and could affect the content and form of the vast wave of Chinese- and Arabic-character web address that are sure to change the nature of the Internet in the coming years. Milton Mueller, a professor at the Syracuse University School of Information Studies, said that by codifying internal definitions of consensus, morality and social good, ICANN took its clearest stance yet on how it might deal with the rush of domain name applications from societies far more restrictive than American and Western Europe.

It's one thing to be far too public on the web and voluntarily offer more information than necessary, but it's another when other sources are the culprits. Even the most smug of people who refuse to use Facebook, Twitter or even the internet itself are just as much at risk of having their personal information and identity leaked via the web. Knowledge is power when being proactive about protecting your personal privacy, and I'd like to go over a few of those areas.
