No, it's silly. It is the parents responsibility to ensure that their children don't stay up all night playing games, not the governments.

I voted yes. Its important for children and teenagers to get a good nights sleep.

No, I think it's wrong to enforce this ban. Even in America to a certain extent instead of individuals accepting responsibility for their actions, they want to rely on government to solve all the problems. So as a result laws are passed and programs are created (all funded by taxpayer dollars) to ensure that the public is "kept safe from themselves". This, IMO, goes against the very precepts that this country was founded on...not sure about SK though heh.

So a ban on the internet for all users under the age of 18 during night time hours.

Someone's never crammed for a test or rushed to finish a paper. The internet is used for more than gaming, and cutting it off for that reason alone seams like using a hammer when you need a scalpel. In addition, the idea of having to log on with my social security number where my internet use could be tracked just seems like a step in the opposite direction of personal freedom, a trend that is becoming all too common.

South Korean schools are much more rigorous than American schools. If you're trying to get by on cramming or procrastination, you're going to be lucky to scrape Cs or Ds. In fact SlayerS_`BoxeR` stated that before he became a professional, he did do cramming and last minute stuff only to flunk his exams and having to repeat everything anyway (and he even put away the keyboard and mouse for a whole year to attempt to better his academics so it's possible to do without the Internet resource).

I wish I could re-vote, because I just realized that this could end up like China. Government restricting access to site X and site Y.

I voted no for this very reason.

I find this decision to be a bit over the top. They should have come up with internet subscription plans where the PARENTS decide if they want to enforce midnight bans or not.

I voted for option 2. IMO it's okay on weekends.
