It also indicated that requests for new sites to be allowed are to be filtered though the STS rather then through a link provided by the block screen.
I will be surprised if this actually changes anything, our youth already just use youtube by typing in the ip address. I will check it after the 21st april.
from what I have seen lds wifi is not well filtered if at all. it doesn't matter if the church eventually notices in the logs, the reputational damage is done. without either limiting access to a small pool of whitelisted sites or strong user authentication there is no way to take effective action as you cant identify the user or pretend that we are the victims as we have not fulfilled our responsibility to secure our access.
I don't care that places like mcdonalds and starbucks allow free access. we are a church, not a fast food outlet. We generally have a defined community of users, or at least that is how the media will see it.
perhaps in Utah the media will play the church as a victim. I can tell you for a fact that will not be the case in the rest of the world. the media loves to over sensationalise things (or just lie).
I hope the church siro and sro take note (if we have them)
