"Filters are a waste of time and money. The only value they add -- if it
can even be called that -- is a slightly smug feeling of wellbeing for
those who implement them. Politicians and caretakers like filters
because it lets them believe they're doing something. But research shows
they may as well have done nothing at all."

I've spent nearly 20 years saying this.

Cheers,
