F.A.T. Helps Censor the Internet
Whether its former U.S. Senator Ted Stevens making an erroneous analogy about the Internet’s infrastructure or the Chinese firewalls that block access to Twitter, the Internet’s uninhibited access to information attracts (often ill -informed) advocates for Internet censorship. F.A.T. or Free Art & Technology make light of this phenomenon with the introduction of the Ctrl+F’d bookmarklet. Named in homage to Rush Limbaugh’s ignorance of the control-f command, Ctrl F’d allows users to censor popular websites in the same way that companies and organizations attempt to do so with sensitive online documents.
