Would'nt this be another way of locking the naive

"The internet is dead, or dying; it's full of viruses, worms and porn, you
have to wear a kevlar suit before you go online," he said. "BT is creating a
private network, which will be joined to other private networks, to which we
will add voice over IP."
If it don't carry pr0n, it won't catch on!
It's easy to forget that the Internet is 90% a porn network.
Parents want access to porn sites (at least those that I know do)
but they do want to protect their children from it.
So home users will always require some form of parental control
(though children will find ways of breaking it).
But might there be a future for such a network in the corporate,
educational etc sectors?
