On a recent morning at the main public library here, dozens of people sat and stood at computers, searching job-hunting sites, playing games, watching music videos. And some looked at naked pictures of men and women in full view of passers-by.
The library has been stung by complaints about the content, including explicit pornography, that some people watch in front of others. To address the issue, the library over the last six weeks has installed 18 computer monitors with plastic hoods so that only the person using the computer can see what is on the screen.
It is an issue playing out not just at libraries, but in cafes and gyms, on airplanes, trains and highways, and just about any other place where the explosion of computers, tablets and smartphones has given rise to a growing source of dispute: public displays of mature content....
Wow. This is news item is seriously disturbing and sad.
From the article: "āThe fact of the matter is nobody did care,ā Ms. Hawkins said. āI couldnāt believe people didnāt care that someone was watching pornography in public. I couldnāt believe society has come to this."
Like the proveribal forg being slowly boiled to death by degrees in a pot of hot water, society is gleefully walking on its way down to hell. I cannot believe anyone would think it is ok for people to be viewing these vile images in public. It's getting to the point that you would not even want to take your child to mass public places if this risk is around. Sickening!!!
