Exactly what problem are these proposed changes intended to address? "the FTC’s review of public comments and its enforcement experience" is not a definitive reason for restricting public freedoms. I and the rest of the Internet are unaware of any demanding need for changes to the COPPA Rule. Please describe the crisis. What is the FTC's reasoning behind thinking an “age screen” - which is literally an attempt at forming a contract with persons legally uncontractible - is an effective deterrent to anything? Such a screen, which can be clicked through by anyone at anytime without restriction, is not a barrier to anything. The entire system is already completely nonsensical; who thinks it needs to be expanded? And how are adding unConstitutionally arbitrary and capricious modifications to the rule supposed to clarify anything? Is there somebody there with a brain we can talk to?
