      So I am reading that it is being considered that every household in the UK will have pornography banned unless they specifically ask for access to it.

      What are your thoughts on this? Do you feel this is something that is needed?

      Twitter and Facebook aside, there's still ridiculously easy ways to access porn if the do ban it through your ISP. They'll probably just block the well known porn sites, but I'm sure a quick Google or so will get you easy access.

      The worst thing that ever happened was to allow governments to get involved with Internet, it was something given to the entire world as a gift from it's inventor, never meant to be a utility as such or a tool to socially engineer the masses which is what we see now. It is a dollar sign in the face of the ISP's and governments, more money to illegally tax and spend until their hearts desire is met. It would be very simple to move all that garbage to it's own specific data banks and get it completely out of the mainstream internet, then it would still never be completely free from mainstream for someone would always upload something that would take a while for the data spiders to move. What we see is search engines running out of horsepower due to the large volume of porn sites and bandwidth demands. Frankly I think we have too many do good -ers in the world already, because doing good is not their motive, it is something else going on in the background which usually concerns money, the true root of all evil.

      I think it''s a great idea. The government is probably thinking ahead of the upcoming generation. with the ban on pornography maybe could instill a few values to kids nowdAYS...................

      I think there's worse things easily accessible on the internet that's worse than porn that we should worry about.

      it's obvious what is gong on here, ISP hates that your viewing so much for free and want to get it restricted and charge you more to get access.

      Here's more info, it looks like it's those family blocks that people can turn on themselves, except in this case, you can turn it off yourself.

      Also it mentions how they're also trying to monitor illegal activity in pornography to keep it with their porn laws, and for rape porn.

      :giggle: I agree, I mean I understand why they are bringing these laws in and such but for some it's going to be something they will hate for sure.

      There are programs that allow you to change your IP. You can even choose a country.

      just be careful your ISP don't find out. You could get in a lot of trouble.
