Censorship High

Salon has an interesting Story by Daniel Silverman, a student at Foothill High School.

He writes about how the school used various filtering techniques to block out some sites, and how he found a way around them.

\”Whenever we click a site that is on the block list, a funny face appears on our screen along with a message informing us that the site we requested has been blocked because it contains objectionable material. There are those words again, \”objectionable material.\” They\’re used to make parents feel safe, to make lawmakers feel secure, to make society feel good. But they have no real meaning.\”
