I'm not a child, I have no children, no children use my Internet  

Regardless of the way they're approaching it, I question the need to  
filter the internet when you - the parent - already have the ability  
to guide your child's internet experience. Failing all else, you can  
just prohibit your child accessing the Internet until they're 18,  
just like you do for the car, the booze, the cigarettes and the condoms.

Just don't go using the Internet as a babysitter and we'll all get  
along swell!
