What I am not following is what is intended to be filtered. Is it just
child pron? Is it any "unclean" material, whatever that means?
I wonder if Ms McMenamin would be happy with an opt-in system for
filtering? She is blissfully and concernedly unaware that an opt-out
filter is an infringement on freedom of speech, censorship of mass
media and will not attain its intended goal.
