I really don't think that that was at all called for. All that was
said is that there needs to be a line drawn somewhere. People
shouldn't have to deal with pornography applications showing up out of
the blue on their PC. By non-PG I simply meant X-rated items should be
restricted to within the app store, completely installable, but only
when specifically called for.
Great. But you make it ubundantly clear that your values are shared by
everyone. We should even somehow be familiar with your codes of value.
They are not.
As for your anger, I am right there with you. Not all American's fall
in the same category you described below, I for instance am not
religious, pro-choice, pro-history, pro-science, and
pro-not-interfering-with-other-peoples-countries. So before you go
accusing me of such things, think.
Yes, but I am personally offended by the stupidity of the democratic
choices my people does. When I was young, it was illegal for Norway to
go into another country with armed forces without a direct attack. After
your 911, though, we were forced to changing our constitution. Because
otherwise, we would be your enemy. And that would mean going into
alliance with Russia and China, which is even more foreign than USA.
But I have never, ever, proposed removing the bible or qur'an from any
site on the internet. All those books offend me deeply. I consider
religion to be more dangerous than AIDS. Still, it's not decease you're
looking to sensor. It's humanity. The imagery of people expressing their
human feelings. Drinking human blood, of course, is just symbolic
seremony, so that shouldn't offend anyone.
A parent should not have to worry that their child might be exposed to
pornography by their computer. This is not something that one has to
deal with in ANY other OS. If you wish to keep on with this
conversation, I am more than happy to keep it going in private,
because this type of talk as not appropriate for a design forum.
Are you all stupid over there? In the old days, Americans were educated.
Now, it seems, all educated americans are moving to Europe. And of
course, we're not complaining about them. They're americans, after all.
Tempora mutantur nos et mutamur in illis. When the world changes,
parenting does too. Don't try to change the internet because you happen
to have a child. Change your child. Prepare your child to meet the
world. We won't change, I promise. The only sane thing to do, is to
correct the things you can correct, not to do an xkcd/386. The world
ain't gonna change. To me, your child is just as valuable as the
millions of african babies that are starving in africa. Perhaps we
should sensor that knowledge before we start sensoring how babies are made?
