I am not sure that my opinion will count for much; however, it is my right and 
resposibility to have one and express it, so with that said, regardless of what 
I do in my private time I do not feel this is an appropriate measure.  As the 
average citizen, I abhore censureship and this is essentially what this amounts 
to.  This provides ISP's the ease to shut off access to what they feel the 
public shouldn't see, and thus be able to control what content is viewed and 
not viewed.  This is a slipperly slope, what's next, giving companies specific 
extensions, so that ISP's can contract with them, to only allow their partners 
sights to be viewed.  No as many problems as can be associated with easy access 
to adult material on the web, allowing it to be quarantined and  thus censored 
will only lead to the degradation of our values and the constitution.  
Additionally should this measure be approved, at the very least it should be 
taken under consideration that giving the power to assign these to ONE company 
creates a monopoly with all of the well documented problems that go along with 
that.  Please consider this and defeat this proposition, or if you will not 
then at the least do not give one corporation the power to control and profit 
off of this.
