results of 'crackdown'
1) ISP gets to drop a service it has contracted to deliver - saves money - money to Cumo's 'crusade' is cheaper. Please note your fees will NOT be reduced. Profit up and companys image is polished.
2) Cumo gets advertised as fighting a problem "Kiddie Porn" - But like most politicos he picks a problem that has no solution. If he solved it then he would have to find one before the next election. Otherwise he would lose votes.
Cumo can crusade against porn on the internet (remember the 2257 rules?). Since this problem is unlikely to be solved he can get election after election out of it.
If he chased people who crashed the mortgage industry by faking buyers credit status he could get convictions - but not forever.
He even has gotten on the local radio stations here in Houston.
He's more fond of the problem than the fix.
It's the same as crusades to prevent polutution by oil drilling or global warming
or to fight the scourge of homosexuality-something that won't go away but will get votes. Many political causes had the same objejective - keep some pompass politico in power.
