  • Mood:

at it again

Once again the U.S. Congress is trying to decide what websites are inappropriate for children to visit, and this time the target is social networking sites. Particularly MySpace (the shark attacks of 2006) but LJ is also mentioned.

CNet article

PDF of the law

Basically, it expands the current law requiring public and school libraries to filter Internet access to cover MySpace, Friendster, LiveJournal, et. al.

The whole thing makes me crazy for too many reasons to elaborate on now. Maybe later.
