Depending on your view of on-line porn, this article 5/restore your faith in the justice system or make your blood boil over what’s plainly a violation of the 1st amendment.

Ironically, this solution, blocking access to web sites based on the site’s server address, does offer significant possibilities for creating child-safe zones on the Net.

Internet purists will cry foul and I can see the ACLU planning to file suit already; however, the idea of using the existing Domain Name Service as a tool to segregate the net into zones is a good one.

The state of Pennsylvania’s approach is fundamentally flawed and wrong. But imagine how easy it would be to keep your kids out of sex sites if all such sites had a .porn top level domain. That’s easy and appropriate. What are the odds the Supreme Court will go for that?
