Filters No Substitute For Good Parenting

from the well,-duh dept

A new study has come out of Australia (where filtering is required) that could be useful for the current US library filter legal case. It basically proves what we all knew already. Most of the filters don’t block a lot of what they’re supposed to and do block many useful, educational, and otherwise non-objectable sites instead. The report also makes the point that our government keeps forgeting: filters are no substitute for good parenting.
