     Sorry about the last message, I hit the send key as I was setting it up.

     This discussion about kid code reminds me of people who buy a house 
near a functioning airport and immediately start a movement to close the 
airport. Why should the long-standing nature and culture of the Internet 
change just because some new arrivials don't like the content? There are 
commercial online services who police their content. Why not just send 
kids there?

     MY children are long past the point where I can tell them to do, no 
not do something. When the were young I would not let them go to X-Rated 
movies. I would likewise police there on-line activities. Aren't we 
trying to make everyone pay a price here so that parents don't have to 
supervise their children?
