Congressional panel says no to filters
10/19/2000; 3:53:17 PM
'A commission created by Congress to study ways to protect children online will advise against requiring public schools and libraries to use filtering software, even as lawmakers in the waning days of the legislative session consider mandating the use of such tools.'
What does this mean? I think it means that if you sit down with rational people and explain the state-of-the-art in filter software, rational people do not find it acceptable. This is a promising sign in some remote way; so little thought has been going on and so much opining that I sieze upon this sign of intelligent life from Congress.
