afaik_ianal (918433) writes "A man was recently caught browsing hardcore pornography in a library on the Sunshine Coast, in Queensland, Australia. The local council is now considering a number of options to prevent the practise in future, including requiring swipe-card access to the computers that log users' browsing history.

Most Slashdot users appear to be opposed to internet filtering and tracking, but where do people stand when it is being used to curb inappropriate behaviour in a public area, using an entirely publicly funded internet connection?"
