Love governments thinking they can censor stuff on the web.

It's fairly trivial to defeat any blocks.

A Zen master once said, "The best way to control a cow is to give it a very large field." I fail to see how banning something has ever been a smart thing to do.

"At the moment, we are looking at the best technical ways to achieve this. But surely if we can send a man to the moon, we must be able to tackle porn on the Internet."


When did Iceland send a man to the moon?

What else is there to do in Iceland?


I'd imagine learning how to spell and pronounce the names of volcanoes could be a fairly time consuming task

I'm so tired of hearing it's for the children I could scream.


And it was the same People back in the Late 1980's I can remember that called for a ban on all Porn.

This was when sites were talking about having a xxx. or a .xxx ending for all porn. on websites with adult things.

Instead they refused to back that initiative.

Which would have been so easy to block most of it had they have done that with simple site blocking. (firewalls, or even Internet service providers.)


Back then most adult sites would not have minded having the (dot)XXX endings but now it is too far gone.

The other question is -- What would people actually consider what is porn... to some even some Artwork is considered pornography.
To some the showing of a breast is natural but to others it is Porn.

The problem is the internet is free for anyone to post images up -- pornographic or not.

Who is going to control it- I mean sure they have filter companies that filter most of it out, but really is only current as long as it is updated.

Now to your comment... I agree... with you... It is for the Children but some of it like others say... is up to the parents.

I mean children behaviorally do not know they are nude until someone tells them they are and that it is bad.

This is where parental guidance should kick in...

I remember a friend and their home-schooled children when they went to college they really didn't know how to cope and were shocked with people and what they called "unruly behavior". Which was drinking and wet t-shirt contests stuff most people know about, but apparently they were never told.

The Korea porn is blocked. You can use a proxy, but then the videos take forever to load.

So, what... Are they just going to completely turn off all internet access in Iceland then? Because that's the ONLY way they'll be able to totally block porn.
