Are crew better behaved now?

It's been a while now that I hear of crew getting into trouble. It's seems the crew of today is better behaved than crew of yesteryear. Lesser crew are charged for molestation,insubordination,fights,theft etc. I may be wrong but I hope not cos it augurs well for the cc division as a whole.
I was told the crew these days spend their time (during the stay overseas)hooked onto their laptops,black berry,ipod and stuff that Steve Job has recently invented (read Samsung also came out with something similar) and what have you. Crew value hotels that provide free Internet service and when management and union look for hotels that free Internet is a must. Free breakfast from the hotels is not an important criteria anymore like it used to be during my flying days.
Minimum crew interaction at night stops also cut down on incidences of misbehaviour like molestation,drunkenness etc. But is it healthy when crew does not interact with each other that often?
So far for this year I have heard of a pilot being charged for molesting a stewardess and a few cabin crew being fired for "unauthorised removal of company's property".
My source of information usually come from senior cc but most have been retired. I am now left in the lurch without much news and knowledge of what's going on in the airline. If this situation carries on then I have to give up blogging about crew and airline stories.
Any thoughts on that?

Crew are better behave today. All go to their rooms, go to internet, and check out, go to work. Do thing own time, own target. Communicate with friends and family, boyfriends, girlfriends using msn, facebook, skype, etc. No need to do small talk with other crew and no need to carry the senior balls.
Flying is good now. No fear.

Flying is GOOD.Last time you need the cook pot to network. Now you just need the laptop & internet. Times have changed. No need to do small talk to pass the time. Now with internet, you can be at 'home' and still keep in touch with loved ones.
