First up. Internet Censorship. How do you feel about it? Should we have it? Does it go against our rights? We all know here on Chu we've got the right to free speech, for the most part. Should it be that way on all sites? Freedom of speech with certain exceptions such as attacking other individuals? How about in public places such as Libraries and Internet Cafes?
Here's an article that poses some very good questions as well: Link
Oh, and sorry for the typo in the name.

going as far as removing what we say from existance, is too much. But i think we should all filter our words, and make sure that what we say is suitable for all ages. unless you are sending a private message to someone, in which case i dont really care how you decide to talk.

A US Appeals Court recently ruled against government regulation of the internet, which would unavoidably lead to government censorship.
If you want a great example of Internet Censorship at its finest, look at China. Some questionable moves by their firewall, but if the government is back against the wall, the only way to stay in power is to literally eliminate anyone who opposes you in that style of government.

Most people? Are you kidding? Over 12 percent of all internet sites are porn sites. That's an eighth of the entire internet. One out of every eight sites. Most people go to to more than eight sites alone per visit to the internet. Have you ever heard of 4chan? That's practically the face of all the wrong of the internet. And it's also one of the most visited sites on the internet.
Parents may think they've got a good hold on their children and the internet. But did you know that 90% of kids between the ages of 8 and 16 have already viewed porn online. Most of which is while doing homework.
