The operative word in this case is "Troop", made up of older boys. Our
Pack just recently went through this with our parents. We decided in
favor of protecting the boy's anonymity by leaving them off of our pages
altogether. I'm afraid I don't have much to say in favor of putting
pictures out on a site when parents asked me "can you guarantee us that
a pedophile can't get to our children from information you've posted?"
If there are any of you contemplating pictures of cub scout age boys on
the web, I respectfully ask that parents be able to make an informed
decision. Let's remember we're in this for their benefit, not ours.
