Very many porn sites exist only for the purpose of entrapping naive surfers so that their trojans and whatnot can be downloaded onto the unsuspecting surfers' computers.

Sure, all those pay sites that only a very small percentage of computer owners are stupid enough to fork out big bucks for every month will do so for image purposes (mainstream pornographers massage that responsible image, as much as possible), but all those others will still be out there in the .com domain, waiting like an angler fish for his prey.
I think it is a good idea. However, the notion that it protects children is crazy.
I am amazed by the reaction here. Everyone calling for more Internet laws! Well perhaps I should remind you that MORE INTERNET LAWS is NOT WHAT WE NEED.

Don't be so quick to jump on every passing bandwagon, folks.
