UK Porn Block Announced
« on: April 18, 2019, 05:36:37 am »
The Uk Govt announced a block on the general availability of online porn yesterday.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-47960775

Quote
An age-check scheme designed to stop under-18s viewing pornographic websites will come into force on 15 July.
From that date, affected sites will have to verify the age of UK visitors, If they fail to comply they will face being blocked by internet service providers.

Twitter, Reddit and image-sharing community Imgur, for example, will not be required to administer the scheme because they fall under an exception where more than a third of a site or app's content must be pornographic to qualify.

Likewise, any platform that hosts pornography but does not do so on a commercial basis - meaning it does not charge a fee or make money from adverts or other activity - will not be affected.

I think this edict is going to be hard to police however the over sexualisation of children is something that is of concern to most parents and whilst this new system seems a bit light on fine detail it should assit in ensuring children remain unexposed to some of the more graphic material out there thats currently only a few clicks away.

there are literally net nanny programs that can be installed (i think one of them is even -called- net nanny) to block that sort of content..... why should the government be the parent?

It seems all you have to do to steal folks rights and liberties (and in some places physical freedom) it to invoke something that all decent folks feel is a good idea, like locking up terrorists, paedophiles , protesters etc , and in the process such  "decent sheep" are blind to wholesale abuses of  rights suspensions.

Freedom and transparency of govt  is lost under the ever expanding veil of official secrecy and operates  free from scrutiny or rebuke under the guise of defending the populace

Today its internet porn tomorrow its who knows what that someone feels is a threat to the entire world and their dad.  :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

You cant make this up  :D

A startup is claiming to have signed age verification contracts with a host of smut site operators – and is hoping 40 per cent of Britons will display their privates to it in July.

1Account, a business run by Ben Keirle and which was incorporated as One Account Mobile Ltd in August last year, claims to have inked deals with “over 60 companies” peddling pornography to Britons.

These, it claimed in a statement, included Xhamster, beeg, txxx and others with URLs that are too explicit for a, er, family-friendly website. According to 1Account, these pornographers represent “almost 40 per cent of the top 150 most visited domains as ranked by SimilarWeb for UK most Visited Adult Websites.“


only 150? google 'porn' and there are literally thousands..... this is going to be the most hilarious attempt at blocking porn ive ever seen.... china is going to be giggling with glee...

Following the latest announcements its not just the Chinese looking abroad for hilarity, in Russia they wont be giggling with glee as their Govt will be looking to emulate the Chinese "censor everything" model, this also follows the passing of a new law that makes it an offence to insult the Govt, a penalty of 2 weeks imprisonment is waiting for those saying nasty things about their "leaders"

In some countries the method you refer to is already being tried  :suspious:

For the rest of you to stay safe make sure you have one of these AFDB devices handy ..just in case  ;)
