Sounds to me exactly like something someone who knows nothing about how the Internet works would come up with.

 

I remember a debate about motorcycle safety in the 1960s in America, during which a politician seriously suggested training wheels! 

 

I agree there needs to be a mechanism for dealing with extremist content, but this isn't it.

One of my major pet peeves. Governments (not just ours!) need to stop trying to control the internet.

 

As someone who's been using the internet for coming up on 3 decades,  I find it incredibly frustrating watching the ongoing attempts by various commercial and political entities to subvert and control it.
