There's more to the situation, however...
"I am more upset that my ISP never told me that Cyber Patrol was blocking their server... they have known for some time and they chose not to spread this information to their customers. I only found out when a job hunter couldn't access my resume and wrote me an e-mail to alert me to the problem. What can I do about this situation, aside from move to another ISP? What sort of compensation can I seek, either from Cyber Patrol or my ISP? It's impossible to measure what sort of hits I have lost due to this block, and I don't know how long it's been this way.
I suggested to my ISP that they set up 2 web servers, one for unregulated content and one "safe-surfing" where people could sign an agreement to keep content clean in trade for an unblocked server, and to co-ordinate this effort with companies such as Cyber Patrol. My ISP responded that they would take my comments into consideration, but that they did not even know whether their web server alone was blocked, or the entire domain, and that my solution might not be feasible."
Such behavior scares me. Is it legal for ISPs to behave this way? Will we all have to worry about being silently censored in this manner?
