I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
Today has two new posts, please check them both out
Okay, maybe it isn’t!
I bet that did not deter children from looking. In fact, it made them more curious, that any of them seeing the headline/tag peeked.
I was at my paying job the other day at a customer’s site and one of the employees (I like that instead of being “PC” – associates) made the comment to another employee on “How is it that adult content is allowed to be on his Internet?”
The other employee said “Because the Internet police haven’t found that person yet.”
First off – WWW stands for “WORLD Wide Web”
Catch that first word?
Since it is world wide, just because our laws stipulate one thing doesn’t mean where the site originates from does.
Second – It is not his Internet! One single person doesn’t control it and truly there is no Internet police (MPAA and RIAA think they are).
I truly understand that the web is not a playground for kids, but there are many resources on the web. Some classes require Internet based projects.
We all have to do our share of protecting the underage from seeing content not suitable, but we cannot be everywhere. Some will argue that the adult content has just as much rights as on adult stuff.
I, for one, was hoping they would have passed the .xxx extension to make it easier to manage, but a debate of what is adult only can be made on so many levels.
Yes, I know you can setup IE or most browsers to manage content and there are many addons/plugins software packages out there to block and manage the content.
Ultimately, we have to be the ones responsible as parents to watch what our children do, while respecting others needs/wants/desires that may not be consistence with our values.
