So I have been reading a little about the filtering software program, ScienoSitter (sometimes called "ScenioSitter"), used by the CofS to attempt to restrict access to info on the Internet by its members and it sorta raised my antennae a bit because I could easily envision a special Thursday night meeting where a JW-version could be distributed to all JWs who have a home computer (or made available from the literature counter) with "strong encouragement" to install the program.
Sure the program is easily circumvented and maintaining an updated list might be somewhat difficult, though perhaps no more difficult than updating anti-virus software and could even be automated, but still I could see that many JWs, especially JW parents who are not keeping up technologically with their kids, might install it thinking that it would be a good thing.
I could also see that it could be packaged with a new WT Library CD-ROM and installed as part of that process.
Now these thoughts are a little more paranoid and conspiratorial re: the Society than I generally lean, however, since I do see the Internet as being the most potent threat to the status quo and the greatest catalyst for change within the Organization, I would be willing to believe that the Society might be capable of implementing a tactic such as this.
