Yes. Goverments should censor material on the www as there are lods of crap material around the world.
which government? if it's a government controled by religion then the www would become useless. censorship is never a good thing as it is based on someones opinion and what gives that person or group the right to decide what others can view.
Censorship is the first step towards authoritan rule and loss of freedom of speech and expression. In this day and age , where diversity is (supposedly) tolerated and looked forward to , censorship of information is basically the exact opposite.
Read George Orwell's 1984 , you'll be able to draw some conclusions for yourself.
Besides, why would you need to ban pornographic if you can use filters for software , like browsers for example.
Governments would make the worst possible step if they try to ruin the most open and free media of all. A good example for that is China or North Korea.

Lately I've been hit here as well and it's only a matter of time before I give up on this site as well.I suspect I'm being singled out by the socialist lefties here who love free speech as long as that speech reflects the...
