"You would think that most people would consider censorship of the Internet a bad thing. However, a BBC World Service poll showed that only 53% of the respondents felt ???the Internet should never be regulated by any level of government anywhere.??? And those are scary statistics if you want your Internet to remain free of censorship."
Please don't conflate censorship with regulation. They are not the same. I think some regulation is probably necessary just as cable TV is regulated and the public airwaves are regulated. Censorship is a different story. Prior restraint would, indeed, be dangerous territory but I don't see that happening in the U.S. so far.
