    BBC News - Automatic bar on net porn considered (c) Auntie

    Looks like the government are trying to police something which they don't understand. Again.

    My local authority has a bar on "inappropriate content". All well and good until you understand that students studying the History of Art at A Level cannot view pictures of nudes (either in school or in the local library). Things like net nanny already exist. If you don't want your 10 year old to see images of people copulating or indulging in a bdsmfest, then use net nanny.
     
  2. Dear Politicians,

    Teh Internetz can't be 'blocked', if you even had the slightest clue about what the internet is and why it was developed you'd understand why.

    Par example: Within 5 minutes of your great 'victory' in ordering Telcos to block TPB, alternative IP's were up and running and all that happened was you delayed downloads by 5 minutes and traffic to TPB is now far bigger than it ever was thanks to all the free publicity about what could be gotten there.

    Won't stop them all trying to dominate the moral high ground.

    What we need next is a ban on handguns...

  4. 95% of internet sites blocked?

    Help!
     


  5. And make murder illegal…
     
  6. I don't look at net porn. I get enough excitement from maguire's texts of him in his "whitey tighties".

    Do you think that's why I feel nauseous all the time?

  7. Bad idea if .xxx had been adopted could possibly have some little merit but will find lots of non porn sites being effected and just turning into a massive pain in the arrse.
    The goverment having a database of those who want to look at porn who could possibly think this is a good idea.:(
     
  8. Despite rumours to the contrary, Nanny State is alive and well.
     
  9. What will their husbands watch and claim on expenses next? Shows how fecking out of touch they are, only a fool pays for their pornography.

    Issue for local system administrators and parents. Not nation state.

    Without Chinese or Saudi levels of state intervention it WILL NOT WORK.

    Is this because they have utterly lost control of anything that matters (streets, budgets, healthcare, transport) they are trying to go "Oh, look how evil the internet is!".

    I look forward the next election and endless vapid tweets and web-campaigns.

    I was enjoying newsnight, the tory there made as much of a twat of herself about the internet as the night before one did about the economy.

    Learn how to work your computer, if need be do audits of your childrens kit. Ask them why they are running proxies, for example? Why is their history list delete on exit.

    probably for the same reason yours is.....

    1984 was a book, Mr and Mrs Politician. Not a how-to-manual.

    You certainly don't HMG put a gadget in your house on the off-chance there will be a crime there, sometime.

    When we can put parliament under similiar 24/7 surveillance I will change my mind.

    Sooner or later there will be a corrupt MP or a crime committed, so why not? Logic is used against us!

    This b/s is coupled with this other project of theirs, which History_Man started a thread about

    http://www.arrse.co.uk/current-affairs-news-analysis/183980-cyber-snooping-good-idea-not.html

    HMG for some reason has woken up to the internet. It is like a city. And like any city it has places you don't want you kids going. But like in real life, you don't lock them up all day. Nor do you let the government put a lock on your front door. So treat the internet like a big, beautiful city. Learn where you don't want to go, what lock you want to put on the front door.

    But ultimately if it all too hard? Unplug the damn thing and put it back in the box.

    Maybe that's what parliament should do. On one hand they have a positive agenda towards technology, but then on others they just have not got a bloody clue.

  10. Typically the Daily Mail is all over this with its outdated views that we should all be living the innocent and upstanding lifestyles as depicted in those 1950's "nuclear family" posters. If I want to have a browse on Xhamster (thank me later) I dont see why that is any of the governments business! The still images of Razzle just don't cut the mustard these days ha! I don't have any kids, but if/when I do, they wouldn't have access to a computer unsupervised and the net would be locked down so they couldn't get on any dodgy sites, and certainly wouldn't have one in their own room before they were 16, surely that is all that's needed?
