Why can't we age restrict the web?
Article by Marc Aupiais
Recently, after watching a television I wanted a definition of a word/phrase I had noted, and thinking it safer, used wikipedia to attempt to find the meaning. When the page loaded, it had a number of images I would rather not view, the sort of images one rather never sees. What you have seen you have seen. Twitter likewise, with some followers- you see things you don't want to see. Now, I have read that in I think it is Saudi Arabia, they block these sorts of images, via software server side, so that the public are not exposed to such obscenity. Personally I see the internet as the public's domain: and I think that such images should be censored, or blurred at certain parts, before we are exposed to them. If people want to get images, they can do so elsewhere: i.e. I don't see how this would limit freedom of speech. Do you agree: I think South Africa SHOULD censor the internet!
