Big Brother is interfering more and more as time passes. We will have more controls than China or Iran soon

RE: Porn Filters
If you live with your parents or a partner or even a sibling sooner or later you would have to explain why you opted in to porn.

RE: Porn Filters
Tough proposals to protect children would 'be a breach of civil liberties'

Just loved this line.

But MPs and charities say this will not adequately safeguard children because it will rely on their parents being responsible and proactive enough to ask for access to be blocked.

If parents don't take responsibility for their children then what hope is there for our society.

RE: Porn Filters
Thats exactly the mentality of the totalitarian state. People are not permitted to make their own decisions in their own homes, so the state steps in and "protects" them.

It says it all about this country. A government frightened of its own people.

RE: Porn Filters
The government wants every ISP to install porn filters.
Expect an order this month and compulsory filters before the next election.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/technology/in...qus_thread

Quote:The new measures will mean that in future anyone buying a new computer or signing up with a new internet service provider (ISP) will be asked, when they log on for the first time, whether they have children.

If the answer is "yes", the parent will be taken through the process of installing anti-pornography filters, as well as a series of questions on how stringent they wish the restrictions to be, according to a newspaper.

The options include allowing parents to impose timed access limits on explicit material, or preventing children from viewing social networking sites such as Facebook during particular hours of the day.

Ministers will also tell ISPs to impose "appropriate measures" to make sure that those setting the controls are over 18, according to the Daily Mail.

I don't see how this can logically work.

Quote:The new measures will mean that in future anyone buying a new computer or signing up with a new internet service provider (ISP) will be asked, when they log on for the first time, whether they have children.

Most of the filtering software I am aware of is for Windows computers, so what if you buy a Mac? Assuming they do have similar software available for Mac's, what if you go to one of the more tech-savvy dealers and buy a computer with linux loaded? I am not aware of similar filtering software for linux. What if you get a tablet, does that count as a computer for these purposes and also require filtering software to protect our nations little darlings?

It's a non-starter for me. The ISP's can be made to do filtering but applying it to computers just won't work.

It misses the point anyhow. Look at the news reports regarding Jimmy Saville, and the institutionalised abuse at childrens homes and grooming and abuse by gangs. Our children are not at risk from porn on the net, but from the very adults that are supposed to be applying these filters and censorship to protect them!!

Given that I can't remember having a chance to vote for them, wouldn't it be good if the country stopped being ruled by the extreme right wing nutters who make up The Daily Mail and its readers?

RE: Porn Filters
As a parent i want it to be difficult ..no....impossible for my children to access porn on the internet...if that means that i have to answer a few questions from the powers that be when i buy a pc then so be it..

It will be no hardship for an adult to have to overcome a few minor obstacles in the form of installing a bit of software which will enable the RESPONSIBLE parent to access porn if they so wish whilst still ensuring that safety measures are in place for when there children do use the pc/laptop/tablet etc

I dont know how many people here are parents, but even if you aren't i cant understand the outrage at such a measure being made mandatory.

If you're a responsible parent then you install the software, if you're not a parent its really a non - issue anyway...Whats the problem?
