1. If possible, include a link to an actual news media outlet
2. Summarize or explain in detail the news event
3. If it's a controversial issue, explain your reasoning for support (or rejection) of the idea. (Bonus points for including a reason for the opposing side)
4. Include the location in brackets before the news header: [USA,Utah] (Include enough detail to match the story)

I would be happy for them to block child porn and stuff, in fact, I'd opt for that. But yeah I just hope they don't go over board.

The thing is, on a network level, while everyone said "yeah blocking child porn is bad", the ONLY way to have it automatically filtered or even have any part of it monitored, you need to implement a system of doing so. It's this system that makes the networks so slow in China. It will most likely bog everything down in Australia, and from there its only a few corrupt legislation passes till the government can monitor anything they want to.

Ugh. So that means that our internet would get even slower. I didn't think that could happen. I'm on a 512kb/s connection speed, most people around here get 256kb/s.

I agree to.
My school censors anything that lets you talk to people other than the school email, anything with games except for about 3 sites, about 85% of the pictures on Google can't be seen, anything that has a link to download something and anything with video (e.g. you tube).

Thats most of the internet gone.
