sick & wrong

Your ISP as Net watchdog | CNET "'We were told, 'You're going to have to start thinking about data retention if you don't want people to think you're soft on child porn.''"

This is a clear violation of the American right to be held innocent until proven guilty. Let the government use the laws on the books today to request a 90 day hold of information about an Internet user if said user is suspect of a crime; that's fine. Ideally, I'd prefer a search warrant obtained from a federal court to be required. However, this new idea of calling ISPs who won't seriously invade users' privacy "soft on child porn" is yet another invention of those who hate freedom of expression and everything this country once stood for.
