I posted this in the spinoff thread, but I do concede there are rare occasions when lying is the less-bad of several choices.


I understand the value of a Facebook account.  As I wrote, I'd probably let my kid have one if it was allowed.


I also understand the argument that it's not really a lie because no human sees the data.  I don't agree that makes it less of a lie, however.  We'll have to agree to disagree about that.


I guess the two things I want my daughter to take from our discussions (and coincidentally, she just asked about Facebook today because a few of her friends have accounts) are:  (1) it's not okay to lie for personal gain and (2) even if we don't agree with a business's practices we don't cheat, we just don't do business there.


I do feel strongly about this for my daughter.  I feel far less strongly about other kids.  It's not really my business what arrangements other families make, and I'm not terribly interested in being Facebook police.
