Quote# 50212

For years I've wanted the FCC to step in and censor the Internet and now it looks like it may actually happen. In a brilliant move, the FCC is planning to auction an unused piece of 25 megahertz wireless spectrum under the restrictions that the winner provide free wireless Internet access and censor obscene content.

If the FCC's plans come to fruition, 90% of Americans will have access to Free Internet service that's free of pornography and obscene material. The only people PAYING for Internet service will be businesses, and people seeking obscene materials. Within a few years being a private citizen paying for Internet service will itself be considered grounds for an investigation.

What family will stretch their budget to pay for an Internet connection, if the only valid reason for paying for it is if you were seeking obscene and illegal materials? Combined with the fresh interest in enforcing obscenity laws, American access to pornographic material would be returned to 1950's access levels, where it was a rare and shameful thing, hard to find and a humiliation if others learned you were viewing it.

The pendulum is swinging and the permissive whores debasing our culture with obscenity are being marginalized again.

Someone's either a prude or insecure of his manlihood - or lack thereof - in comparison to the hung porn stars.

I'm guessing obscene material means kiddie porn and such, if this announcement has the slightest bit of truth to it. Seriously, the governments paying for 90% of America's internet? Every provider in America would go bankrupt overnight.

So they're going to censor one way of accessing the Internet?

Yeah, that's what I thought. Censoring the actual Internet is nearly impossible because

*Explanation of how the Internet works goes here*

and because of memes.



"The only people PAYING for Internet service will be businesses, and people seeking obscene materials."

And people who want fast Internet. :P

"Within a few years being a private citizen paying for Internet service will itself be considered grounds for an investigation."

I was going to say "Just like being a black guy is grounds for drug testing", but you are so stupid you might have taken me seriously.

"What family will stretch their budget to pay for an Internet connection"

Families who want fast Internet or who can't get 25 MHz signals because they live in the country or something?

"American access to pornographic material would be returned to 1950's access levels"

Really? you could get unlimited on-demand inter-porn as part of your TV and cable package in the 50's?
I don't seem to remember that.

"hard to find and a humiliation if others learned you were viewing it."

Porn's always been easy to find if you know where to look and an embarrassment. The Internet didn't change that.

"The pendulum is swinging and the permissive whores debasing our culture with obscenity are being marginalized again."

And new proxy sites are popping up every day.

THE INTERNET CANNOT BE CENSORED.

What's the matter, Alex? Did an Internet Porn Babe turn you down?

This has got to be a joke.

Oh, and the FCC can't step in and censor the internet, what with the "F" in there standing for "federal". The internet is international, meaning that your government has no jurisdiction over the vast majority of content. They can try to block access to sites from computers within your country, but they'll never be able to actually shut down all of the content you find questionable, and people will always find ways of getting around the filters they set up.

Why software engineers think Internet porn filtering is futile: "You can't solve a social problem with a technical solution in an adequately all-encompassing manner".

Why the rest of the science and engineering thinks Internet porn filtering is futile, relying on much older adages: "Build a fool-proof system, and someone builds a better fool."

Just because someone *mandates* there will be filtering doesn't mean it's *any good*.

What family will stretch their budget to pay for an Internet connection, if the only valid reason for paying for it is if you were seeking obscene and illegal materials?

All of them with men.

Wow, christians really want to burn the Constitution, don't they? I guess they have finally realized that separation of church and state IS in there, so now they want to do away with it entirely.

Since the onus of censorship is placed on the service provider in this scenario, I have to saw it will not work. The people who run porn sites are much more clever, resourceful, and wealthy than that. They'll get their product through, no matter what silly filters and such are used to try and stop them. :)
