Unfortunately, the internet is teeming with adult content.Â And no matter how we try to shelter the children from such obscenity, there are still so many ways that allow the children to access them.Â But I believe each little step, no matter how little they are, doÂ make a difference.
Leigh tagged me and now I’m tagging you.Â Â As a blogger,Â withÂ your blog as yourÂ outlet to reach out to many, take this opportunity to contribute to a good cause and post this message on your blog:
To all webmasters of “adult content” websites:
Please require a password-protected login before allowing even free access to explicit adult content. We understand that selling porn is your business and we respect your right to make a legal living. But understand our legitimate concerns and work with us. You already have the â€œwarning adult contentâ€ on your websites. Yet kids, who are not legal customers of your product, ignore the warning. So to prevent them from having direct access to explicit images, texts and sounds, the simplest way is to have a password-protected login. No more â€œfree toursâ€ before a visitor supplies basic information.
For those who think their sites are not frequented by marketers of adult content, you might want to rethink that.Â You’ll notice that more than half of the spam emails you receive are from these marketers.Â As your blog gets popular, you receive spam comments from them as well.Â They’re everywhere looking to promote their business.Â How do you think they got to be a multi-billion dollar industry?
The dangers of the WWW
There are a lot of things to watch out for online, from hackers to spam to unregulated information.Â Adults themselves exert extra caution when reading info and clicking on links online.Â But what about children?Â Children are more prone to the dangers of the world wide web.Â More and more children go online at a very young age.Â And at the same time, more and more dangerous information are accessible online.Â Parents now implement different ways of shielding their children from these dangersÂ including limiting web access and internet monitoring.Â Times have changed.Â Parenting is more difficult than ever.Â Honestly, I have no plans of becoming parent.Â Do you?
