      This is, quite simply, about how we protect our children and their innocence

        A load of posturing. It's exactly the same opt out service that ISP's already have filters for. His team has just written to the ISPs to say they're going to call it something different.

          That might be an awkward conversation with the Mrs ..

          In a previous life I've administered a fair few networks and it's a minefield as to what is porn and what is "tasteful art" etc.

          And that is beside the bigger point that no govt should legislate what I can, and can't view.

            I must say that I'm flabbergasted to discover government/state interference in an area of life to which THEY HAVE NO FRIGGIN BUSINESS BEING CLOSE
            I believe that all government is evil, and that trying to improve it is largely a waste of time.

              If you want something bad enough you will find a way to get it. It will make no difference what he is doing as it is technically impossible to stop it.

              this is my preferred tool for accessing whatever the hell I like

                Indeed Eamo. Next they'll be taking some of our wages and deciding for us how it should be spent.

                  Even if it is illegal stuff which it appears will include the innocent and wholesome family entertainment which is Rape Porn pretty soon?

                    They shouldn't but given they already control most of what you see and read in traditional media and tv this isn't much of a step further.
                    And they already collect all your emails, text messages, phone calls, online comments etc etc.

                    Is this just to distract away from the attention prism is getting?

                      Could be worse. In China during times of sensitivity you can actually see the delay in your text messages reaching its destination as it all has to go through central processing first.

                        I actually think it is perfectly fair, since the providers can't/won't do anything to control what is available why not do something about it. The fact ye bunch of perverts don't want to have to tell your wife you've had the porn filter turned off is irrelevant.

                              My wife turned off the porn filter herself! She's such a perv. Love her to bits.
