Reasons why we should do away with internet filters. Answered
Internet filters suck. Here's why we should throw this sh*t away:
- Most filters restrict LEGIT sites, like wikipedia, Youtube, Facebook, etc.
- It slows your internet speed down somewhat.
- The workarounds make your surfing experience way too slow.
- Censorship in general sucks.
- It takes away freedom, which is already gradually ebbing away..
- So people don't try and steal my iPhone to look up porn because the PC's are blocked.
People should have common sense to just hit the X button if they stumble on content they find offensive.
