Restricting all but the predators

There seems to be a growing media realisation that UK government attempts to bully ISPs into installing Web filtering tools will not achieve their aim of blocking access to child pornography:

Parry Aftab, an Internet privacy and security lawyer and executive director of WiredSafety.org, argues that educating children about potential dangers online is the way to keep them safe. "No one in any country, no matter how well meaning they are, can block everything," she says. "It's about education. And most of it has to be done at a home, school, or kid level. It's the only way to protect them."
