We can do so much better!

As US cit­i­zens, our tax money funded the cre­ation of the Inter­net, yet we don’t even have the con­sumer choice to have easy access to a gen­eral com­mu­nity Inter­net alter­na­tive that is free from hard­core inap­pro­pri­ate mate­r­ial. Quite incred­i­bly, we … Con­tinue read­ing

Children need our voice!

Imag­ine our ances­tors sit­ting around the evening fire show­ing their chil­dren words and imagery of vio­lence and hard-core por­tray­als of women as sex objects. Most of us would con­sider that to be an extremely unhealthy and odd culture–one that was … Con­tinue read­ing

Sending a petition is quick and easy and it’s the right thing to do.

All we’re ask­ing is that in addi­tion to their stan­dard Inter­net ser­vices, Inter­net Ser­vice Providers (ISPs) in the­United States be required to pro­vide sub­scribers access to the Inter­net that excludes hard-core vio­lence and pornog­ra­phy, in com­pli­ance with exist­ing fed­eral obscen­ity … Con­tinue read­ing

Time to take a stand!

As won­der­ful as the Inter­net has been in mak­ing knowl­edge access­able and expand­ing per­sonal net­works, it has brought things into our homes that would have been unimag­in­able to past gen­er­a­tions.  It shouldn’t have to be this way. We need to … Con­tinue read­ing

Letting the industry do whatever it wants, isn’t the answer

Let­ting the Inter­net indus­try do what­ever it wants, is not the answer. The respon­si­bil­ity for deliv­er­ing a safe, law­ful alter­na­tive must be placed on the providers of the Inter­net, not on the vic­tims of unwanted Inter­net obscen­ity. In every other … Con­tinue read­ing

Where is the outrage?

Below are some brief excerpts from the New Zealand Her­ald. Do my wife, daugh­ter, and per­haps future grand­daugh­ters really have to grow up in a world where depic­tions of graphic vio­lent rape are spread through­out the homes of the nation? Where … Con­tinue read­ing

Time for the 85%

In this mod­ern, high-tech age we have no excuse for not hav­ing a gen­eral com­mu­nity Inter­net alter­na­tive that is in com­pli­ance with US fed­eral obscen­ity laws meant to pro­tect our chil­dren. It doesn’t mat­ter if this is due to com­pla­cency, lack of leg­isla­tive will, … Con­tinue read­ing

Disregarding laws that protect children, is the same as disregarding children

If we assess mat­ters by look­ing at actions rather than words, at the present moment our gov­ern­ment has more regard for the porn indus­try than for the law and chil­dren. US Code, Title 10, para­graph 1470  states: Who­ever, using the mail or … Con­tinue read­ing

The UK may be leading the way

The largest ISPs in the UK (BT, Sky, Talk­Talk and Vir­gin) are work­ing on plans to offer UK con­sumers “a choice at the point of pur­chase over whether they want adult con­tent on their home inter­net, lap­tops or smart phones.” … Con­tinue read­ing

Protect our children from illegal Internet porn. Take a stand today!

Pornog­ra­phy has been around for a long time and it’s not going away. But the dif­fer­ence right now is in the quan­tity of pornog­ra­phy that is so eas­ily acces­si­ble, the increased vio­lence and degra­da­tion that is shown, and that it … Con­tinue read­ing
