So I take it this will only affect new PC users? Or eveyone?


I would assume once it goes live, the next time you connect / use the net, you`ll be met with the opt-in or opt-out terms of service

If you opt-in you are put on the sex offenders watch list :laugh:

Not just that, but depending on how the filter works, it is highly likely it will block non adult sites due to something stupid like an advert for underwear, or an advert to a dating site



This worries me the most too. Aside from the whole nanny state thing.

I'm not fussed about internet filtering, its pointless and counter-productive, like I said earlier, block a site and people go to the ends of the earth to make it accessible again, generally making it easier than it was in the first place

Nanny state where the government decides everything for you :rolleyes:

to be fair the UK is a country where they cant control their drinking habits, wont look after them expect the health service too, wont look after their kids - social services do that!
ppl depend too much on the government to tell/force them to do stuff..........an entire generation that needs parents basically!

The only upside is that the Daily Mail should be on the filtered list - 75% of the "stories" on the right side of the site ("The Side Bar of Shame") are mostly naked celebrities.

So to whom can we report such filth? :shifty:

I really hope the Daily Mail Online is banned same with the Sun, then lets see if they still support these measures.

lol yea I remember the London riots very well, I was checking sites that showed where the biggest riots were and trying to direct my brother home the safest route at 8 or 9pm and he had to go straight between two of the main riots using public transport

Imagine if we were an armed society, you think it would be any better?

Nope! Those idiots would be even more dangerous than they already are, and half / most of them are armed anyway

But we're not an unarmed society in reality, we have armed response

You can keep guns.... we're just restricted on what type. Also I sincerely doubt guns would help in a protest, how would you get your point across, shooting up Downing Street? Its as delusional as the people who think owning a gun will "stop a tyrannical Government".

No, they are on the publics side, if there is a report of someone carrying a weapon on the streets, the armed response will be called

Yep, and thankfully we don't have concealed weapons permits, so anyone with a gun license has to keep it locked up / use it in permitted areas iirc
