WiFi porn in public areas" to be blocked"

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. WiFi porn in public areas to be blocked - Telegraph


    "It is not clear whether the internet firms will automatically impose the restrictions on access – or whether it will be the duty of shops and other public areas used by children to bar adult content. "

    Good luck with that one Dave. Presumably that will not be a problem for 3G & 4G providers either
     
  2. Sitting there and thrapping off whilst tucking into a Gregg's pasty or Starbucks coffee should, rightly, be made illegal. Carry on thrapping, though.

  3. And how will they stop me just loading up my frankly impressive locally stored collection and looking at that?
     
  4. Easy enough to do though. Just make the owner of the wifi responsible for anything that is viewed via that connection.

    A couple of court cases with associated media coverage charging Starbuck or Greggs with sexual abuse of a minor (ie showing or allowing to be exposed to pornographic material) should make all the rest of the firms sit up and take notice.

    Over here they have made it law that the owner of the Wifi circuit is responsible for what goes over it. So if your neighbour decides to do a bit of film/music piracy and uses your network to do it on then you will be stuck with the fine if/when discovered.

    You are supposed to secure your network so no one can get on without your permission.
     
  5. The ultimate evolution of this concept is that you put ISPs on an equivalent footing to broadcasters and make them responsible for the content they carry.

    Not saying that's gonna happen, but what is happening is the law is catching up with the technology. The "Electronic Frontier" is going to become a lot less wild in the next few years.
     
  6. Just have a blocking software on certain words + known websites in all languages. Take a few years and will work. The venerable arrse had software that stopped users taking thru stages of making a weapon ready to fire. For a while. The c word.
     
  7. first they came for the drivers
    and i didnt speak out because i didnt have a car

    then they came for the smokers
    and i didnt speak out because i only take a bine occasionally

    then they came for the jakies
    and i didnt speak out because although i thought it was a bit jack i could afford the minimum pricing

    then they came for the *******
    and there was no one left to speak for me.





    TO ARMS! TO ARMS!!!!

    You lot do realise there's women out there don't you?

    What's that you say? You're all married?

    Forget what I just said...
     
  10. The only that would work is if ISPs become like broadcasters - ie they select and transmit a finite range of material. Ergo, the other billions of pages on the web will thus not be available at all.
     
  11. most commercial establishments would love u to read three thousand pages on why costa coffee/mcdonalds etc are fantastic. maybe in between what u want to read..like the train times or weather report....

    but not whether denis milani has done ffm.
