Yes there is. Internet in the UK is filtered by the Internet Watch Federation, which works with all the ISPs to censor child porn.

Virgin Media and BT have been known to stop Zshare download links from working.

A recent development of 2011 is David Cameron proposing to censor social media websites the next time there is a riot.

There is a scheme called Friendly Wifi Scheme which ensures that all Google searches are forced to have SafeSearch on.

What's an assertion, and what should I type in?

Compesh is a question and answer (and debate) website, so before you make a debate, you better learn what an assertion is. I suppose you already know what a question is, and that you've typed it in the box. ;)

An assertion, is basically a statement you can make, that is either true or false.

Richer people have better health.

The question for that would be, Do richer people have better health?

And don't forget to make your assertion, match your question.
