ToddElkins.Net Banned by Sears and the K-Mart Corporation!

Of course, the best way to sell books is to get someone to ban them. Well, I stopped at a Sears Grand store (they have them in suburban Kansas City in place of K-Marts). Sears Grand stores are very cool. One of the neat things is they have free computer terminals that one can have 60 minutes of Internet access on.

However, I was surprised to find that ToddElkins.Net (this blog) was blocked by their spam filtering, because apparently there is sexual content on my website. Hmmmm, I'm not sure what that could be, perhaps my paper on sexual ethics, my mention of breast cancer, or homosexuality?

I guess I don't try to make my blog kid-friendly, per say, but it shows the problems of filtering software. Also, it was blocking a new effort my Missouri Impact, called the Long Spoon Coalition.

So, thanks for the internet access, but please unblock my site!
