Ironic Photo: Digital Democracy?

Does anyone else find it ironic that when I follow this link that I cite in my highly trafficked post Making the Case for Cell Phones in School that it would take us to the Center for Digital Democracy and a page that is now firewalled?

That is sadly hilarious!

This is something I would see a lot at my district… They block a LOT, and we aren’t allowed to let kids blog or use any Google services (like docs or blogger). Sad.

I don’t know where you got this link to the article, but there are some extraneous characters at the end of the link, which are some sort of mistake.
You should have used this link: http://www.democraticmedia.org/current_projects/privacy/analysis/mobile_marketing/
without the /d/2 at the end.
I would like to know where you got the original incorrect link.
BTW, I am webmaster for the democraticmedia.org website, and we NEVER deny access to information on the site.

We actually can’t change it here at the Center For Digital Democracy because the link you posted is not correct. Can you please take off the /d/2 at the end?
Thank you!

We have recently cleaned out all the old articles because we are redoing the website and won’t move all of the articles to the new site. Actuallyl, now that I think of it, that is probably why the link changed. We should include this article in the ones moving to the new site in a few weeks.

Thank you Vickie!
