Should pornography be blocked on public library computers?
Comment: Yes it should. . . . Leave porn for the home! by Jazie
Comment: Why would anyone be on a porn site in a PUBLIC place anywhere especially the library where children are present!! Shouldn't this fall in the same categegory as a pedophile?? by Monica
Comment: Definitely, tax dollars should not support pornography! There's also a concern with others who may be sitting next to this Bozo viewing pornography in the library when a child could be sitting in the next seat or a teenager doing a school project that may be exposed to inappropriate material when the Bozo is viewing such trash. by Ofelia
Comment: It is our moral and civic duty to protect our young defenseless, susceptible, and vulnerable children from pornography. by Gloria
Comment: Businesses and school district can do it, why not libraries? by mary
Comment: I'm surprised to see a public library having such kind problem, it would cost less than $100 to get 3 old computers upgraded, and install on them a filtering proxy with the open source software pfsense. Problem solved! by Mehdi
Comment: Speaking from experience yes, when I was younger in highschool many of my classmates used the public library Internet to look at pornagraphic material. They were 15 yrs old at the time. by Joe
Comment: Libraries were started for educating, teaching & to help research a topic. Now, people want to waste valuable time watching smut to feed their sexual appetites. I have no desire to see such filth. The library downtown is filled with people that just use it for shelter & use the bathrooms. Books will be a thing of the past soon. by Jose
Comment: If an individual choses to see this smut let it be on their own personal computer and not on a computer where a child may find this trash. What happened to morals and values ?? People like this should be banned from public use computers. by Nancy
Comment: porn is not free speech. by joe
Comment: they block them at the work place, why not where there are underaged children around. Unless you reserve a place where adults and only adults have access to it. by Enrique
Comment: There is a place and time for everything but that is not the place for that sort of thing to happen by John
Comment: As long as it is age restricted & totally confined to private rooms for adults only. Of course no child porn. by James
