I think filters/firewalls are useful.  I believe every computer should
have one.  I have several.  I just disagree on who should control the

Firewalls are a patch to broken network application architechture. If your applications would have been properly designed, you would not have the need for firewalls. They
are for perimeter defence only anyway.
