South Florida Council has a brand new official website and a brand new
official policy about this very subject. I quote:
"...Requests for hosting, linking or the posting of information which
include Chat Rooms or Topic Forums will not be considered. South Florida
Council will not host any content of this type. As a matter of Policy,
South Florida Council strongly discourages this kind of activity by
District and Unit sites. ..."
While I'm not in a position to say why this policy is currently in
force, I can guess that it's due to some fear on the part of Council
folks that use of the internet to exchange ideas on Scouting issues is a
dangerous thing. I can also only guess that the idea of a chat room
still evokes visions of ranks of pedophiles lurking in the cyber shadows
waiting for the unsuspecting Scout or Scouter.
When I emailed the webmaster of the new official site, he (she, them)
sent me an unsigned reply that addressed about half of my inquiries,
ignored the rest and promised a review of our Troop web site sometime in
I can hardly wait. ;-)
