A Porn Free Internet?

The FCC may soon require bidders on a swath of the wireless spectrum to deliver a free, wireless version access to the Net — sans adult content.

Is a porn-free Internet possible or even desirable? Infoworld’s Robert Cringely has some thoughts on the matter here. Tell us how you feel about it by registering your vote below.

    I belive that we should at least have the choice… Right from the desktop. I mean, to have a serious leak-free content filter. And for the rest, be aware that some crap availliable out there is vomitive. A level between porn and gore. Disgusting. Some content supaused to be nudity makes one’s skin hair straighten way before any other more fleshed piece of one. And even yet… Nudity isnt quite a problem, but seeing people in the frame of the act of freaking fucking around like, they should keep that personnal… I mean, thats no-good. The web truly should be reviewed and made porn free, and have a certain nudity level allowed… Like, at least… if one could have the choice, im not talking about any actual porn filters, this stuff doesnt work, but more like a review system putting serious tags on sites that might shock somebody. Even yet, i was talking the gore stuff. I saw that stuff like ounce or twice, making me whish i will never see such ever again, but what, it could happend if no serious population act is took against such. The main task of the internet should be to make the people work their wiseness.
    Yet, there are sites about weapons, bad tricks, and what.. all the bad side of the net that is to concider aside of “porn”. People’s vices shouldnt ever get further than a realistic bareer. Like i said, simple nudity…. Like, there’s no bad in nakedness…. Thats how atoms has worked to exprimate their excelent capacity of producing more than dust in a fine way. Yet, all the rest of the bad side of the web has to face a wall. Rock-Solid. Laws makes it hard to target anyone building that darkside, but at least, restrictions can be encouraged to being put in order that their crap never goes any further than their desktop. For the rest of the web, the better-side and the goodside, it should become at least as solid as bittorrent is. So that no nice sites goes down…. Koz it is way more frequent that the good stuff vanishes than any crap that stays sticked even after years..

    So yeah, else than the kama sutra anciant book of showing the trick, i dont see what goods there is in seeing people in act on the internet. Good for them who had the kodak in hands, good for when they’ll be grey-haired and missing the past telling their finaly-became-their-wife those ol’good times but what, who else should care?… I hate that, personnaly. :D
