I thought that anything on Facebook was in the public domain. Far from 'stalking', the author has just done his research using a valuable networking tool. The Felix team used photos off Facebook for the ACC (soon-to-be-sport imperial) Bar Night spread. So there..
In general I'd only approve of that if it was absolutely necessary to the story, or provided additional impact. I chose to remove a quote from facebook as it wasn't necessary to include it - the extra impact/information wasn't worth it. Better to save stalker-esque behaviour for when it really counts and isn't just used for padding.
Fair enough, ed. I think the comment about 'lies' did add to the imact of the story however. jesus - I agree with you about AAC/SI - but not your hateful tone towards sabbs and their jobs, of which you seem to have very little understanding and too many wild unfounded opinions)
It's a bit of a grey area. With a strict interpretation, then yes they would be. Clearly in a democratic system that is not an acceptable situation.
The spirit of SSP is to stop the union getting claims of constructive dismissal should a lynch mob of students or media chase a member of staff out. The sabbs have not been employed for long enough to have that protection: only protection against discrimination on the grounds of race, age etc.
A second year sabb would have that protection, which is why they're replacing the contracts next year.
Unless instructed otherwise Live! articles and moderation will proceed on the basis that the SSP does not apply to sabbs.
