In a report from the BBC all three currently-operating filters were found to work erratically: TalkTalk’s failed to identify 7 per cent of websites with adult content, but blocked content including the award-winning sex education site BishUK.com and Edinburgh’s Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre.

Sky’s filter blocked 99 per cent of the 68 adult sites tested, but also blocked six sites offering advice to individuals addicted to pornography. Sites blocked by BT’s filter included those dedicated to tackling domestic abuse (Reducing The Risk and the Domestic Abuse Helpline) and others that offered sex education advice.
...

this is fscked up....

make them build the tools for acceptable reasons
then make them use them for other things

dynamite founded the nobel peace prize and it has been awarded for things that have made the most evil and devastating weapons.

It seems they are also blocking lgtb sites also, with one commentor on this news item suggesting this is a good thing in case her son turns gay  :/

It seems the Govt are making a mess of this and I hope will be castigated heavily for it.

Agreed Stripes.

Perhaps we are reading this all wrong and the children have a password given to them at school to bypass the filter and its actually just stupid parents being filtered ?  :lol: :lol: :lol:
