This censorship is completely unacceptable and, although I am not a lawyer, I believe it constitutes illegal government control of speech or the press. I find it absolutely despicable that public funds are being used to provide this crippled service in the shadow of one of our nation's greatest landmarks representing our common ideals of liberty and justice.
I think the government of the city of Boston should be applauded for researching and implementing free public wi-fi. I feel that universal, unfettered access to the internet is crucial if Boston as a city and America as a country are to remain scientific and technological powerhouses. I also do not condemn filtering outright. While I feel that information should be uncensored to the greatest extent possible, I do understand that concessions may need to be made for access to extreme sexual content, child pornography, or media involving violence or death in public places or on publically funded networks.
