+ - ISPs asks religious groups to set parental controls ->

Submitted by
Barence
Barence writes "A British ISP is inviting religious groups to help set parental controls for its customers. Claranet says it is recruiting volunteer "Guardians" from a number of different organisations — including religious organisations, schools and child safety experts. A press spokesman for the ISP said that an "Islamic advisor" was among the first batch of Guardians, but refused to identify them.

The Claranet Guardians will be asked to choose whether they think 140 different categories of internet content are appropriate. Within those categories, the Guardians can choose to add or remove individual websites from the blacklists, which are created by a third-party company that Claranet also refused to name."
