    Even if Google has banned the Pornographic blogs that doesn't mean they have gone away. No individuals will still figure out a way to find them if they want to. The thing I don't get is doesn't Google have buffer settings where parents and others can go to block certain content they don't want to see pop up in their search engine. Instead of complaining to Google how about just filtering the settings so that these don't come up in your search. I don't want to see it either but I know to either ignore it or filter it out.

    The internet is complete in its menu, from do-it-yourself kits to educational materials. Of course, the porn will be there simply because there are customers. Let us admit that people love porn, not all, not most but some people. Still, there are customers. Right?

    We have here the so called Red Lit to mean red literature or pornographic literature. Mind you, that activity was started by educators, mostly high school teachers. They say that censorship is like putting our minds inside a box so let's get out of the box to have literary freedom.

    I think that as long as there's people who want to read it then its a great idea. It isn't hurting anyone. And, frankly, if they're feeling a little porny, they're going to find it somewhere. So why not yours?

    Well, the Internet is supposed to be a free space for us to find everything on (of course, to a legal extent, although you can find plenty of illegal stuff on the hidden (or deep?) web). I find it stupid to censor something just because you don't like it. Tastes vary from one human to another, so you can't really criticize someone for the stuff they like.

    There always someone who won't like your tastes, and will either preach to you, or talk about you behind your back. I have found the best coping mechanism is to simply not care... At all.

    I did not know this type of blog exsisted. It is not something I go lookig for, if I had small children online it is something that I would block.

    Yep. I used to be fairly unhappy in my childhood because I would overthink every little insult in my head, even the ones that were supposed to be jokes. Then, I just realized: this is MY life. I shouldn't care what OTHERS think about MY life. It's mine alone to live, and I should live it MY way.

    Absolutely! It's the only way anyone can be happy. I was always self conscious and upset when I realized most people didnt like my way and my tastes lol
    But now not only do I not care about what they think I will talk about it completely openly. It helps weed out the @$$holes.

    "I believe that this responsibility would most appropriately lie with the parents, who should not allow their children to have unfettered access to the Internet. Unfortunately, many schools and most libraries will not only allow children to access inappropriate material, but some (in the case of public libraries) feel that is is their mission to allow children to access such sites."

    Not here, they don't. We have software that is supposed to block inappropriate materials. But sometimes someone who is tech savvy can find a way to get around it. When they are caught, they are banned.

    When my son was 6, he got caught looking at porn. That's right about the same time me and my ex started researching parental controls. They seem to have worked so far, and he's 12 years old now.

    They should be protected , so that teenagers surfing the Internet wouldn't enter them, it's very important for me, because then they get like a "fake view" of sexuality.

    I agree completely! I just don't know how they would go about protecting it without the parent's being involved on their end. Anyone can change the year in their birthdays.

    I have read an article that some groups are preparing a rating system for the internet. Websites will be classified according to themes and contents. But that was last year and I haven't heard about it anymore. But if that would be in place, parents can block those classification so their children, even if they fake their age, cannot readily access those pornographic sites. But then again, kids are smarter than us so we really cannot prevent them completely. But I am really interested in that classification of websites.

    That would be great! And so convenient, too. Parents are bound to have an easier time than I had. And you're right about kids being smarter than us.I have always felt like a moron when around kids and technology. When my daughter was 3 she could use a computer better than I could. Sadly, I'm not making that up or exaggerating.

    @Jennifer Graves if you are embarrassed with that daughter of yours in displaying the fact that she is smarter than you are when it comes to gadgets, what is it for me? I am working in the IT department and still, I am no match to the kids in gadget talk. It seems that they have a doctoral on that while I am struggling my way with the apps.
