'Meep' Student Rebellion Caused by Facebook?

A blogger caught wind of a humorous story regarding H.S. students in Salem, MA banning together to use the word "meep" in school. Administration banned the word which the blogger points out is likely exactly what the students' objective was: get under the skin of the administration.

"Meep?" Here's an example...enjoy!

What is blogger points out in the post is that the administration cries foul of the evil Facebook for spreading "meep" in a viral way. Maybe the administration should figure how to use FB rather than tear it down and reach the students through communication they understand. Huh, if a 30-somethin' developer without a background in child psych can figure that out, shouldn't it be obvious to PhD's?  Good luck Salem!
