spend 30 minutes researching and downloading a family filter (can it be that hard?).
lol, I work at an internet/software helpdesk, yes for some people it can be that hard
I mean a few examples:
- My computer is broken, I hear sound when I put him on, but I only get a black screen
* Do you see a button on your monitor with a circular symbol with a vertical line thru?
* Can you push on it?
- Whoohoo you fixed my computer
- The internet is broken, It is not there anymore.
* What you mean? Do you get an error message or something when you try to go on the Internet?
- No, I can't even try to acces it anymore, the blue E icon is disappeared. I only see My documents, bin, My Computer, but no blue E. Can you send a technician?
- I got a login and password from the guy who installed our internet, but I can't login.
* And where do you try to login? Your email or account page?
- No the email and account page works to login but everywhere else it doesn't
* How you mean, everywhere else?
- Like I said it, everywhere else, for example: -whole bunch of sites-
* Heh that login is only for your email and account, we don't own all the sites on the internet, you got to register on those sites first.
Or I can login to customers there computer to clean up there mess, the only thing they got to do is surf to a site, fill in a code, click run program and click accept. Costs me sometimes 30minutes to get them throe these steps, some people open there browser, get google as startpage and fill in everything on google. Explaining to them where to fill in the url of a site is for them some kind of weird quantum theory.
I can go on for hours and hours with this kind of story's, but believe me, for some people it is impossible to install a family filter
But off course even for those people it is there responsibility if they don't want their kids to see porn to get a family filter, if they can't do it, than go to someone who can do it. It's just a poor excuse to block certain traffic.
Btw my parents didn't knew how computers and internet worked when I was a child and I was 11 or something when I first stumbled on porn. Didn't killed me, didn't traumatise me, I'm a pretty normal person, with a pretty normal sex life, and pretty normal thoughts. And I guess the children now are way more used to see certain things than I was back then.
