I've got this crazy idea. Combine those two ideas. Create an independent
organization that pays willing participants (I bet you could sign up
college-aged males in droves) to look for uncategorized porn on the
Internet. Pay them a buck for every website or something, probably
require some sort of consensus or quorum. Then add it to a filter and
publish. That's pretty much what Phish Tank[1] is doing for phishing.
Heck, just like Phish Tank I bet you could find plenty of people to do
it for free.

Legislating technical solutions to a non-technical problem is not going
to work in the long term. Social problems require social solutions.
