Blogging Activity #1: Internet censorship

Not known to many, an increasing number of countries/governments are taking steps to censor the Internet to protect children from pornography, violent / hate websites, and fall prey to cybercrimes.

What is your take on this topic? Are you in favor of Internet censorship? Why or why not?

Please post a comment with a link to your blog post and will add it here. I look forward in reading your post.
