The ACLU put together a white paper about concerns around
the rating and blocking proposals for the Internet. They are
concerned that such rating systems will torch free speech on
the Internet. Please see:
The doc is about 16 pages long and I am reading it this morning
while I drink my coffee. Our site is actually sited in it as
being one of the sites where such rating systems will not work.
Would be interested to hear what you think about it all.
