No one has ever answered why Tom Brokaw can hire people to filter his mail, but
I can't hire an ISP based on their use of filtering rules. As long as they
clearly state what their filtering service is, they filter with the authority
of their willing clients.
If the situation gets to the point where nobody offers unfiltered email, then
there should be antitrust issues, but until/unless that happens, the only
question is: can you hire people to do things for you who can do it more
I simply do not agree that your free speech right limits my ability to contract
with my ISP to help me exercise my free speech right to discriminate as to what
I receive. In fact, since the ISP is a private party, I'm not sure why the 1st
or 14th amendments provide any legal basis for relief at all.
