Yes, I'm sure that will be interesting. I would suspect that many schools filter their connection and as a result there's a sizable pool of students who are skilled at getting around filters. I'm thinking the best security is simply limiting the "patron" account to specific times. It would be nice ...

Are they listening

First, I am not a church employee, nor do I have any insider knowledge of what goes on over there. I do live in SLC, so I have had some face time with the familysearch wiki user group.
