BT "Porn" Filter - Being Abused Already

Fresh from the "I told you so.." dept

On Friday, BT flicked the switch on its promised system to supposedly help to protect kids in the UK from sex/drugs/violence/etc online, in the hope of preventing regulatory meddling from Whitehall.

The filter "doesn't block VPN connections, but does prevent access to sites promoting the use of proxies and annonymisers [sic]," the BT spokesman said.

Some IP addresses will be blocked "where required", he added, which we presume relates to - among other things - court orders that demand ISPs to block access to sites serving up links and torrents to copyrighted material, even though there are obvious workarounds.

As usual we see public trust abused by the govt, after pretending to the UK public that this filter is for one purpose its now clear its nothing of the sort , will citizens of the UK only engage their critical faculties when this filter is used to censor critics or whistle-blowers of the govt or will that pass by unnoticed also ?
