Let's Give Idiotic People Absolute Power Over Discourse.

The Apache Junction (Arizona) Public Library, as part of the never-ending campaign of the truly moronic to play parliamentarian with no semblance of consent from the rest of us, has blocked www.ampletraveler.com and www.theampletraveler.com from being viewed by patrons who use their Internet facilities. The "rationale" given by the "application" is that the site is "Illegal." Below is the "request" I sent regarding the subject to the unidentified and physically absent "sysop" supposedly in charge of discourse control for the library.

I'd like to know how a website devoted to accessibility issues in travel came to be categorized by your software as "illegal." I'd also like to know your name, as the personnel on duty at the Apache Junction Public Library declined to give it to me when I raised with them the issue of how this site came to be "filtered" out in the first place. Mostly, I'd like to know how a public library, a facility that once upon a time was known as a bastion of free speech, decided to use an application that so casually impugned the "legality" of any website, let alone one that shows no illegality at all as far as I know. I'd like you to email me at carlwilkerson@threewisetwins.com with your response.
