Why spend money on bad technology that doesn’t work?
With respect to SmartFilter* and other filtering companies the only good answer is don’t! We should all assist in the effort to keep dialogue, conversation and the free flow of information available to all.
It is not just BoingBoing that is being blocked or filtered by these systems. There is a very high liklihood that your blog is also on their lists. I know Modulator shows up on at least some censoring systems. In our local library system only those with the specially requested adult access privileges are able to read Modulator.
Here is BoingBoing’s Guide to Defeating Censorware. Use needed, spread the link far and wide, and send BoinbBoing your latest techniques.
