It's just the same as a school blocking some material. If a library doesn't have a book you want, you just go to another. I don't see how it even touches the 1st amendment. They offer a service with restrcitions. It's not like their customers can't get their Internet elsewhere.

Who determines what is porn in this situation? You can get internet at other places, but this is one problem with municipalities offering internet services.

Would the city block access to websites offering information on reproductive health then? Come on and think about the issue for a second people.

P2P has legitimate uses as well. What about all legal torrents?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
