CIPA - "the piranhas are already attacking"

From a library discussion list (Web4Lib):

And the piranhas are already attacking... my techies have gotten two vendor phone calls already (before 11 am CA time) INSISTING that we HAVE to buy filter s/w, which is not the case unless we've received federal funds for technology.... methinks I see a conspiracy.... (yes, yes, only kidding, but often it feels that way). I, too, am interested in exactly what constitutes filtering and how it has to be utilized and so, will wait for more information from???? someone????

Oh course I could rant on about just how it's not "burdensome" to turn off filtering, but let's not go there.

I promise to serve some cheese with my next whine.

Good luck to us all Jean Willis
