I'm too much of an idealist. Of course I want it totally free, kitty torture and all. When I want to research something, I want as many views as possible. Now I can only see what someone decides is OK. Yea, I kinda hate that. Wouldn't this be a "freedom of the press" or first amendment violation?

Everything in life is a double edged sword, capable of good or harm. We need water, but too much will kill you. Should we ban water? That's absurd. Everything is exactly like that. If people are too freaked out seeing kitty torture...I would assert that those individuals are not well equipped to deal with reality all the way. These people are not to be admired for that trait IMO. Sure kitty torture is bad, but guess what, it goes on. Life is tough and you can't stick your head in the sand. How can you deal with it if you can't even acknowledge it?
