    Old men and women trying to keep up regulating an increasingly internet-born world.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    While filling gapes might be a lot of fun, I think this 'Digital Authority' is meant to fill gaps. :)

    'would adopt' may be better?

    Yeah, "to fill gapes" is a... somewhat different category of website.

    This is where I'd usually say "I'll go fix, ta!" - but, once again, I've been beaten to the punch by a mysterious stranger with edit access!

    Ban terrorist stuff, ban self harm stuff, keep banning stuff building walls limiting where you can go etc etc. Maybe focus on guiding (proper education, not a list of what to do) the young to make good descisions in the first place? then you don't need the filters because the young minds can be exposed to any content without negative results.

    There used to be, but Guido Fawkes spoiled it for everyone a while back.
