OSNews, Generic OSes ...and we're back. Like so many other sites on the web, OSNews joined the worldwide protest against the Stop Online Piracy Act and the PROTECT-IP Act, which threaten to end free speech, economic innovation, privacy, and the free exchange of information on the web. I don't wish to waste too many words on our participation, so consider this item as a sort of comment lightening rod to make sure that when the next story is posted, we can focus fully on its topic. Update: DC seems to be getting the message the internet sent today.

The world is just not this small group of people who are able to setup parental restrictions on a computer. And even if they were, there are no guarantees that the next door won't have that available.

The problem has nothing to do with people not being able to set up parental restrictions, the problem is that on a wide scale parents today just don't spend enough time with their kids to make sure they are alright because they are too busy 'living their own lives'.

This in turn is just insane, because when you become a parent you dawn well should realize that from now on there is no thing called your own life and that whetever microscoping scraps are left of it will always come at a distant second to the needs of your children.

Sadly we are seeing parents today shrugging off these responsibilities (and it hurts me to write 'responsibilities' because it's just crazy that some people will look at it as that and not as caring for the most precious thing you'll ever have in your life) in order to live their lives while claiming that the responsibility for their kids behaviour and lack of parenting is the fault of the school and things like you know, 'internet porn'.

Kids are increasingly screwed up these days due to lack of love and attention from their parents and in some cases through traumatic real world incidents, not because they watched a hardcore porn clip on the internet.
