Misty Hello, all! As an educator, I'm interested in using this site in the classroom. I looked at creating a group and noticed that I can make the group secret so that I can be certain my students will be the only ones responding to the blog. One question, though...If someone posts something inappropriate, can I remove it?

Melissa | 2 comments There is an educational site called Classchatter. You can set up class blogs there and it's free.

Kathleen (StandardReading) | 13 comments I e-mailed GoodReads support with a somewhat similar question for postings of reviews and comments. Here is the response I received:

Hi Kathleen,

Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. We take this kind of thing very seriously, and are doing our best to stop it, but
we can't always prevent it all. For the moment on we rely on people pointing out inappropriate content in book reviews, but we plan to implement a flagging system soon.

So please send us a link to the inappropriate content you found, and we will act accordingly!

sincerely,

Otis

question: I really need to ask about this-- are posts at all scanned for language? I can curse as good as anyone (probably better than a lot), but i don't really want my students looking at sites with reviews that contain, in big bold letters, words that are inappropriate to for them to say to each other in school (or anytime, really, but i can only enforce respectful behavior at school). And these are reviews for CHILDREN'S books. ... This just really bothers me. I also know that some of us have very strong feelings about books we were forced to read in school; i have a few that i'd like to carve out of my brain. But must people wade through profanity to get to the point of their reviews? Sorry if this seems naive or dull. I know that it's hard to moderate huge open forums for things like this, but i haven't even seen a button to flag messages that contain such language. (Comments, yes, but not reviews.) Thanks a lot for your time.
