Your Letters

15:23 UK time, Tuesday, 21 December 2010

With regards your story "Internet porn block 'not possible' say ISPs". I'm with ISPA on this. I have a two-year-old son and he can only access any website that I have approved first. CBeebies is on the approved list. BBC news is not (nothing personal - I just think he needs to be older before being exposed to some of the news stories that appear). Parents should take responsibility for their children's online activities. Even the IWF mentioned in the story has been known to overreact and there is so much porn pretending to be something else that to have effective filtering, every file on the ever-growing internet would need checking every time someone wants to access it, which isn't workable.

Re: How do you de-ice a plane? I returned from Munich on Thursday evening where they de-ice planes at the approach to the end of the runway where there are two lanes. The planes then immediately take off. There should be a best practices guide book for all airport operators, it's too important for poor management to have such a huge impact. As ever, hot air and no government action just makes it easier to explain away such ineptitude!

I had a look for the moon this morning, but I didn't see it. Does this mean I saw the eclipse?

Gordon (Monday's letters), why not just cancel the damned thing completely for this year? Sure as eggs is eggs there'll be another one along in 2011.

Rob (Monday's letters), you may very well be right, out local Health Centre is on Well Place. I find this most reassuring when I seek medical assistance.
Pam, Stirling

Dear Vicky (and the cats) (Monday's letters), are you a pop combo?
Graham, Purmerend

Cows laying eggs, whatever next?
Rory, Perth, UK
