1. I would never buy it and it think it's a stupid idea
But I'd much rather have people who want censorship buy and use this machine than have their views forced on us through FCC and MPAA restrictions.

2. Exactly
The best solutions to this problem (if you percieve a problem here) are on the user end. It allows each person to decide for themselves what is appropriate, without involving the government whatsoever.

3. Given ClearPlay enabled DVD's, it'd take a NY minute to have a DVD player
that played only the "bad parts".

There may be a market for this concept.

nipples. It didn't phase him a bit. He took it all in stride and really wasn't interested in the fact that people were nude. He was most interested in their volley ball skills.

If some parents want to shelter their kids from the world than god bless them, but leave the rest of us to make our decisions for our kids.

6. An 8 year old on a nude beach with adults?
Wow.

I don't have any children, but if I did (and one day will), I'm not so sure that I'd want him or her to see random nude adults playing volleyball with their business flapping all around.

Come to think of it, I probably wouldn't want to see that either.

More than what my kid would think though, I'm not sure that I'd particularly want adults around my nude kid.
