Well, the Children's Internet Protection Act didn't go through...you know, litle thing called the first amendment. I'm suprised at the utter thoughtlessness of the people who come up with these bills. I haven't heard of anyone asking the people who run the porn sites just to voluntarily make a tag that browsers can read that says that their site is for 18, 21, whatever and over. If they did this, then there wouldn't be any more problems with netnannies labeling sites incorrectly, no more problems with kids stumbling upon porn when looking for stuff related to games (i've seen it pop up while my little brother was looking for cheat codes...shame) and hell...no more netnannies period.

Mabye the filtering companies paid off some representatives like is done unfortunately commonly today, got them to make the bill to get more of their software sold and guarantee a future for their industry, similar to what the RIAA and MPAA are doing. But they didn't count on the Supreme Court stepping in and deeming their law unconstutional.

If this is really just a bid to keep their industry from falling through, then mabye it should die. Mabye they should just stop taking donations from corporations. If they did, mabye congress would be a little bit more honest and true to their constituents. I guess I'll just keep hoping for that perfect government.
