Firefox detention

The Google search for Big Spring High School still returns links related to the Pennsylvania school district or the school itself on top but I can imagine that is soon going to be changed. This sounds too crazy to be true but several blogs report that a kid has gotten detention for using Firefox. Also, this letter looks real enough.
If this is true, it sadly confirms that there are teachers who should seriously consider changing careers because they have less to teach their students than vice versa. If this is not a hoax and there actually is a poor student in Big Spring High School who has fallen victim of teacher ignorance, I say go for it. Your right to use Firefox is worth a couple of hours in detention.
