My concern is...
I understand the arguements both in favour and against. We may argue that our liberty is being denied when we are restricted from being allowed to choose what we want to see and when. But in the case of child abuse (because child pornography is abuse and not just a photo or video clip), we are through our actions creating a market for such material. When we download child abuse images somebody somewhere will realise that there is a market out there. If there is a market someone will supply and more children will be abused.
Although any filter will not stop a determined pedophile from accessing and obtaining child abuse material, casual users will be blocked from stumbling across this form of material. This is in itself is a preventative measure that should be supported.
Please keep in mind that child abuse material is;
a permanent reminder of a child being abused,
a permanent reminder of the fact that so many adults are ready to exploit innocent and in some cases underprivileged children,
the child will be abused every time the material is exchanged over the internet and will never bbe removed from the net.
STOP CHILD ABUSE IN ANY FORM!!!
