WebTV.Net: Censorship Central?
<http://fcn.net/no> Microsoft's Web TV Network, with hundreds of thousands of subscribers, uses the real-time black hole list censorship software. Very disturbing since it niether tells it's clients their mail and WWW is being censored nor offers them the choice as to whether or not to allow this censorship. Outside their lame anti-spam statement there is no indication of any censorship anywhere else <http://www.webtv.net/antispam/>. Perhaps the people using WebTV would appreciate knowing the fact that Web TV censors their access. Or, even better, maybe Web TV could offer them the choice as to whether their black list is off or on (default to off). I'd be royally pissed off if I used WebTV and found out every- thing I did was behind some one fellow's idea of right and wrong. Shame on Web TV Networks!
