Actually, I was thinking more along the lines of, "I am generally just too afraid to jump at the opportunity", but I guess that works too. Drinking Beverage

RE: The uk blocking porn
I was thinking about the idea of porn giving unrealistic expectation
But in reality does that really matter?

We would't use that as a reason to ban die hard now would be?

fantasy is fantasy,If a person cannot understand that the fault rest's on them.

and the last time i checked children(under 10) weren't that savy when it comes to sexual knowledge.let along actually use the internet and keyboards .Parenting issue i think?

Also reading this I thought of Dr. Cox's bring back the porn speech from scrubs.

I ain't from the UK, but I'll vote anyway. There is an option to select non-citizen as well. Thumbsup

edit: Nevermind, when you select that you aren't a citizen it tells you to fuck off. Oh well.

RE: The uk blocking porn
Either David Cameron has no concept of nuance and is completely throwing out the baby with the bathwater or he has ulterior motives.
I don't find a particular problem with the government offering an internet filtering system,but there are two major ways they are doing this wrong.
  • They don't ask, not really, they install a program on your computer to restrict internet access then ask if you want it 'turned off'.
  • It operates on a per household basis, so whoever happens to have the power in the house gets to control everyone else's internet regardless of their age.
Add to this the fact that filtering systems can be finicky and overly broad,and the government can block whatever it pleases under this law, count me very staunchly against this.
I don't want to find that honest, frank or even child-appropriate discussion on sex or sexuality is blocked from my computer because my landlord said so.

They are also blocking search terms that are related to child sexual abuse, which I have more mixed feelings on, is blocking searches right at all? Should people be allowed to seek out child abuse websites? Should anyone be unwillingly subjected to it? Doesn't this get rid of whistleblowers? I don't think that is really right even though I sympathise with it.
