Title: RE: ISPs as content-police or method-police

The use of the phone isn't that difficult, it's the use of the phone to get someone -clueful- enough to a) recognize the request as valid, b) log the request for their records, and c) disable the filter.

Customer service at many of the Tier-2 and Tier-3 providers usually isn't, in my experience.

Then again, nobody here seems to be suggesting mandatory filtering.  Why
is there such a strong objection to opt-out filters, where a single call
or email can get the filters turned off?  Is using a phone really that
difficult?
