China issued a new rule on requiring PC makers to include filtering software in new PCs recently, quoted to filter the harmful pornography content from the youths . I am confused by where it came from and the way it implemented the policy.
(1) If this policy only targets at youths, why every PC needs to include this computer? not every household has a young kid.
(2) If parents are worried about this, then why don't give them the option, say put a CD in the PC pack, to let them set up themselves?
(3) Curing a disease has to cure from the fundamental. Why don't spend more money on regulating those pornography website, instead of making a national-wide expensive policy like this? I would be curious to know how much taxpayers' money is spent on this? and is there any open/transparent bid on who is going to be the software provider?
If those questions can't be answered, then this policy is destined to be a bizarre.
