“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Just What Part of “shall make no law” and “shall not be infringed”
Don’t You Understand?

As a Fellow Net Citizen, and Free Human Being, I HAVE NO RIGHT TO RESTRICT THE ACCESS OF ANY ADULT to ANY MATERIAL they may want to READ, WATCH, LISTEN TO, RUB INTO THEIR BELL YBUTTON or OTHERWISE CONSUME! In My Humble Opinion, Neither Does Anyone Else!
Remember: “When we lose the ability to laugh at our own weaknesses, stereotypes and misfortunes, the only thing left to laugh at are the weaknesses, stereotypes and misfortunes of others. That, (IMHO) is not what makes a healthy person or society.” The Eggman
“Bigots, zealots, racists and the like are impossible to meet on a level debating field of honor and truth because they have no honor, and the truth is not in them. They come armed with half-truths, lies, innuendo, accusations emotion and acrimony.
Their minds are as closed as if they were long buried. Kindness and understanding are not components of the forces I grudgingly and loosely call something similar to their fraction of a soul.
They are like gnats buzzing in your ear distracting you from more noble tasks at hand.
Like the gnat, however, they serve nature’s purpose. If not for the incessant dogmatic buzzing of the closed minded zealots, we might fall complacent, relax our guard and awaken in chains.”
While I have attempted to list sites which are both current, and have relevancy for the intended purpose, no guarantees are made that any of the links on these pages are current, or appropriate for your intended use.
I attempt to visit each link on a more-or-less frequent basis to make certain that they are active, but again, no guarantees. If you do find that I have linked to a dead site, or one which has moved, a quick E-Mail will help both me and future visitors. This type of feedback helps keep the Net a valuable resource, and cuts the frustration level.
Remember: “The Internet is 100% proven, reliable technology, that actually works about 50% of the time.”
I will NOT INTENTIONALLY add a direct link to any site that, in my [feeble] mind, is excessively tasteless, patently obscene or terribly disgusting. Keep in mind, however, that “tastelessness is in the eye and mind of the beholder.” If one of MY pages offends you, please feel free to drop me a brief note of explanation. I may not DO anything about it, but your opinion IS valued.
I CAN NOT
be held even remotely responsible
for ANY WEB SITE NOT DIRECTLY IN MY CONTROL!
If you start at my site, and then jump to a search engine looking for “Beast Master,” and end up looking at photos of beastiality, THIS IS BEYOND MY CONTROL!
If you are Easily Offended by Foul Language, Sexist, Racist, Blasphemous or Generally Tacky Material, there are tools
which can restrict access to certain materials on the Internet. There are Still No Guarantees. Political correctness has not yet, (and IMHO Should Not,) hit the Internet. If you do not agree with this, PRODIGY might be an option for you, or maybe a monastary or convent.
The Internet transcends all local, state, provincial and national borders. You may find yourself, quite accidentally, sitting at a place where illegal activities are encouraged or even facilitated. This IS NOT THE FAULT OF THE PEOPLE UP-STREAM FROM THESE SITES! DON’T COMPLAIN TO THEM, or EXPECT THEM TO RESPOND! If you start Surfing at my JumpGate, and wind up in Polluted Waters outside MY Territorial Boundries, IT’S NOT MY FAULT AND I ASSUME NO RESPONSIBILITY, PERIOD!
If I have DIRECTLY Linked to YOUR WEB SITE, and you would like for me to remove that link, a Quick E-Mail will do it! I May, however, at my discretion, replace that link with an embarrasing public banner message such as, “This Link Removed At The Request of firstname.lastname@example.org,” or something similar.
PARENTS NOTE: Unsupervised Surfing
of The Internet By Impressionable Young Children is Not Recommended. SUPERVISED SURFING,
on the other hand, is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
and can help bridge the Technology (and Generation) Gap that seems to exist in so many families. Of course, Unsupervised Television Viewing
can be hazardous to even adults, much less kids.The primary “Danger Areas”
of the net, are USENET News
, and Internet Relay Chat (IRC).
There are, however, adult oriented http: sites such as; Playboy Magazine, Victoria’s Secret Catalogs, Pantyhose Ads, Bodybuilding Sites, Gynecology and Urology, Medical, Clinical and Politically Controversial Sites
, which are easily and readily accessable via the WWW. While a lingerie catalog, or lateral section of the male genitalia are not what I PERSONALLY
would consider obscene, your mileage may vary. This, however, is called The First Amendment.
Please keep in mind that NO nation can pass any law restricting Internet content, since the very nature of the Internet transcends all borders.
“The Internet treats censorship as damage and routes around it.”
You can, however, restrict access to adult oriented (and a lot of innocent) sites with the use of any of the following software products:
Please keep a couple of points in mind when “Censoring” yourself. All of these products will block sexually oriented websites. Some, however, just might keep you from reading a review of Gloria Sexton’s novel, or even your favorite Chicken Breast recipe..
