Wired has a Story on Congressman Dick Armey,
and his views on filtering. Dick is in favor of filtering
software and other Net censorship measures. Bill Hart,
a retired Colorado professor, found that at least six
filtering programs blocked Armey\'s Freedom Works
site, probably because of the prolific use of the House
majority leader\'s shortened first name.
irony is that Armey is a big fan of censorware,\" said
Hart. \"I just wanted to show what a bad deal
censorware is. Not only is it wrong and ridiculous to try
to control what is seen on the Internet, censorware
doesn\'t even work properly.\"
