They make a good point, imo.

The UK wants to fight porn by screwing with DNS, Mozilla is making it
much harder to manipulate DNS queries that way.  Secure DNS was actually
created as a tool against criminal manipulation and political
censorship, the benefits to the porn industry are incidental.

you should not fight porn, let it disappear by itself.

APN's daily news review from Israel
Monday July 8, 2019

Quote of the day:
“Anyone interested in peace doesn’t busy himself with the archaeology of a
ruined kingdom but with the future of the existing kingdom.”
--Zehava Galon writes about US Ambassador David Friedman’s active participation
in the ceremony at the so-called 'City of David' archaeological site in the E.
Jerusalem Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan.*

*The U.S. Ambassador to Israel's Flimsy Cardboard Wall (Zehava Galon, Haaretz+)
The coupling between the Trump administration and the Netanyahu government has
created some iconic, unforgettable pictures. But none can compete with the
messianic radiance on the face of the U.S. ambassador to Israel, David Friedman,
when he was breaking down a fake wall with a sledgehammer in the tunnels under
Jerusalem’s Silwan neighborhood. In any case, this engineered picture, planned
down to the last detail, is the problem. The sledgehammer that Friedman hoisted
didn’t blaze a path to any archaeological discovery, it just hammered another
nail into the coffin of Donald Trump’s “deal of the century.” Anyone interested
in peace doesn’t busy himself with the archaeology of a ruined kingdom but with
the future of the existing kingdom. There’s no point in explaining this to
Friedman, the person who called J Street “worse than kapos” and who supports
annexing the West Bank.
