Broadband again

OK, I now think I am starting to get boring, but why do Major Broadband players show so much bad practice in there add (Not including AOL) Just seen the BB ad for BT.

This is such a bad practice because
  • Internet activity is not being monitored.
  • No way of stopping connection, because as soon as parent leaves room kid could just plug it back in and be on line in seconds.
  • it would be better if his connection was in the living room, or was connected via a router, which could either be unplugged or disabled so you can control access.
