Internet Censorship

Following a similar discussion on Radio 4 this morning, a purely hypothetical question, ignoring the issue of how you'd implement such a scheme.

Poll #726641 Internet Censorship

Should ISPs Censor Internet Content

Yes
1(9.1%)
No
10(90.9%)


Although some of the content on the internet is of questionable moral value, I think the main power of the internet is that it's an open platform. Where would you draw the line if you started censoring it?

It provides a platform for minority viewpoints, which in general has to be a good thing, even if some of those views lead to bad consequences. They still need to be voiced somewhere.

Have finally added thought to the last poll too now.
