The UK Moves to Block All Internet Porn by Default



How is this not being discussed here?

quote:

British Prime Minister David Cameron announced a sweeping set of reforms on Monday that seeks to limit access to online pornography and do away with the more obscene materials. In a speech, Cameron outlined a new filter system that will compel all British internet users to select whether or not they want family-friendly filters in place on their accounts. Blimey.

The filters are designed to block all porn sites, while additional filters will be put in place on mobile devices and on public Wi-Fi networks.

That's not all. The new anti-porn measures also crackdown on the spread of violent or abusive pornography. This means that all porn videos streamed online will be held to the same standards as porn sold in shops and that search engines will have to introduce new measures to further block illegal materials. Porn depicting rape or violence towards women will become illegal, and law enforcement will get increased access to the networks to monitor the creation and spread of child pornography.

Looks like Brazillian Fart Porn will no be illegal in the UK.

Posters least likely to move to the UK now

I like the opt-in format. It should be done here in the US.

Doesn't seem like a compelling government function and will probably be expensive and not work. No thanks. Waste my tax dollars elsewhere.

Yes and it also says by default in the title. I am not a moron that lacks reading comp skills. It's still a silly thing to worry about.

Only if people use VPN's and pay to surf sites, which most people will not do.

The ISP's can certainly implement filtering on their end otherwise.

Yep. It seems to be an excuse to start their own PRISM type monitoring.

All this because someone snapped pics of the duchesses deflated tits and hairy bush?

Btw, British guarantees of free speech and whatnot are not as legally secure as they are in the US, are they?

Guaranteed that the people who proposed this don't understand any of that.
