A new report of the National Research Council titled "Youth, pornography,

See http://news.com.com/2102-1023-897591.html)

"The report's authors didn't take a stand on the various bills or on filters
themselves, but they said a single approach could give people a false sense
of security. The report also suggested that people have largely neglected
the education component."
