    Interesting to observe that an online safety institute allows registration and login over HTTP, and also fails to validate XHTML and CSS despite presenting icons to the contrary.

    Doesn't fill me with confidence in their abilities to "highlight the best practicies" or to act as a "single, factual and up-to-date source…dedicated to making the Internet a safer and better place"
