---- UK: Google Against Plans For ISPs To Filter Adult Content
- 8:32 am on May 24, 2012
the company warned against allowing private companies to manage lists of inappropriate websites
Yes, they mean private companies other than themselves!
I agree, it's not a good idea for ISPs to be the filter. Think about it, it could be your site that is blocked, and who are they to decide if it fits into a particular category.
Who is anyone to decide? Adult content on the Internet is much too readily available to minors. There must be some sort of controls otherwise more of this will happen. [
If minors go into a newsagent the adult magazines are on the top shelf where they cannot reach them without asking. We need to create a similar structure online.
