So who would decide whats offensive, also logistics there are billions of internet pages maybe more it would take a very long time even with thousands on the job to check every website, you would neuter the internet thats not a good thing its one of the few places of utterly free speach man has ever known personally i want it to continue just the way it is, although it would be nice if it was faster and a little cheaper.

Offer a few pre-approved sites to look at. In any case it didn't work as people prefered the real internet.
Also some service providers (like mine: bigpond.com) offer similar pre approved sites that have music movies games ect. that don't contribute to your download limit.
Fixing the problems we have now would be a better investment than creating a new one.

One of the incredible things about the Internet is the diversity. Take that away and put "big brother" in charge, and we'll only see what TPTB want us to see- kinda smacks of George Orwell's "1984", huh?
I didnt say take it away, you would still have the original internet aswell. and anyway, it was only a passing idea

Getting back on topic, I have mixed emotions on this topic.
I'd like it because it would take away the spyware, adware and virus situation or place sever limitations for the time being and put an end of [bleep] graphic images. Wouldn't it be great if the world worked so well?! To bad it doesn't. Gouverments would soon take advantage of this and start sencering what they want us to hear and what they don't. Making it hard for us to justify whats right and wrong out there because we wouldn't be getting the full story. I have to admit it, i get 90% of my news from the internet because its up to the minute......getting off topic again......But the truth of it's, you block it and they'll get around it. There is to much out there for everyone to scan. Content can change in a heart beat and they cannot view every single page in a heart beat. What it comes down to me is, we'll lose freedom of speech on the internet and other rights if we let the gouverments begin to inforce sencorship. Just like there is no way to catch every criminal there is no way to stop all the problems on the internet, lack of ressorces as usual. So we'd end up giving what we have and getting back something less......much less. Not to mention no gain of some kind of a sence of security. The web is a great place, it can however be used for the wrong reasons, and thats when you get into trouble.
