We heard the Psak Halacha issued by Gedolei HaPoskim regarding the permissibility of having internet access. Most notably Hagaon Haadir Posek Hador Ba'al Shevet Halevi HaRav Shmuel Wosner shlit"a, as directly stated himself live at the Kinus Klal Yisroel, Maran Hagaon HaRav Chaim Kanievsky shlit"a, as stated in his written letter, and the hundreds of Gedolei Yisroel attending the Asifa.
As I understood the Psak Halacha, everyone is obligated to ask a shaila if they may have internet access (assuming they want it.) And to filter it, if approved for access. But is it only allowed for business use? What about (kosher) pleasure/entertainment internet sites? Or educational sites? And can one allow their child to access educational or entertaining websites? Is one, ever permitted to even have internet access at home? As I understood Rav Wosner, possibly not. And if so, can the internet only be utilized for business purposes?
What websites must, al pi halacha, be filtered out? All non-business sites? Must blogs be filtered out? (Obviously the kefira blogs must be.) E-Commerce/shopping sites? Is Facebook definitely a site that is always assur?
And for people employed by Gentile companies, large multinational conglomerates, and the like, where they have no control over filtering options, they cannot dictate to their employer to activate an appropriate filter. The employer likely monitors usage, but doesn't necessarily care too much if the employee goes to various assur websites that aren't considered bad by a goy. What are these Yidden to do about their work internet access (that they otherwise require for their employment duties)?
I beg your indulgence in requesting that ONLY sincere, l'shem shamayim, replies and discussion be posted on this thread. If anyone, for any reason, isn't abiding by the Psak Halacha, please save your comments for another relevant thread; not this one, PLEASE. And if there is any replies here not fitting this that does get posted, for everyone to please disregard it and continue the discussion earnestly. I sincerely wish to understand our halachic obligations under this Psak Halacha.
