Mass. official aims to shame library porn viewers
seems like an invasion of privacy, and an over reach of gvt. to me...
Bad idea to make a public of ANY viewing of the clients at a public library, I think.
It's an invasion of people's privacy.
If I want to view pictures of guns so I can get HOT, what business is it of the publics?
It is a PUBLIC computer. There is no expectation of privacy. Porn viewing is forbidden and these creeps broke the rules.
I think shame is a very effective deterrent. A few examples and the problem would be solved in a week.
I say... what the heck .. why not...
It would cut down on sticky books at the same time..
One does NOT have an expectation of privacy when one is breaking the law or the established rules. So much for that argument. It is against policy and rules to view certain sites on Public Library computers. If you chose to violate those rules the library has every right to publish your name as a violator.
One assumes that anything that one can view on a PUBLIC computer can not be illegal.
And if it is NOT illegal, then really... what right does the library have to publically announce what people are viewing??
Does that mean the library has the right to publically announce what we are reading, too?
Like I said before, if I happen to get a licivous pleasure viewing pictures of GUNS or COWS, what right has the library to announce my interests to the public?
I thought youse guys were all about INDIVIDAL PRIVACY AND PERSONAL FREEDOMS?
Or, are you telling us that you think the GOVERNMENT has the right to invade your privacy if they don't LIKE what you are interested in?
Where do you draw the line, exactly?
Well.. perhaps if they only listed suspected conservatives.. it wouldn't be considered an invasion of privacy...
Why don't libraries just have a porn section?
Creating non existent protections is not enabling Government protection or lack there of. It is against the law in some States and it is against the POSTED rules in the others. One does NOT have an expectation of privacy while breaking the law or violating listed established rules at a public facility.
