Re: Downvote because
"It's also IIRC an offence to buy such age restricted items on behalf of children. It seems to me that parents buying a broadband connection then allowing their children access to porn etc, are in just the same moral position as parents buying alcohol for their children to drink."
And there you're opening a whole can of unpleasent worms, if you're a parent who lets your kid watch the odd bit of porn, and it brings its friends around while you're out and they all watch porn are you then guilty of distributing porn to the poor innocent litte shits?
Fuck children, and the people that have them, they deserve no special consideration from me.
Why should I have to sign up to the naughty list to gain unfettered access to the net just so some gobshite can feel safe and secure. It's collective punishment for all, coz you just know some one's gonna get the bright idea of using the naughty list for ECRBs (oh Miss Jenkins I see you like porn, tell me again why you think you should be a teacher/nurse/doctor/politician/social worker/police officer/door to doo salesman/taxi driver/gas man?)
Alsom Why is this talk talk person such an outragous t--- if his service is so great and so greatly in demand by parents, why on Earth would he want the government to enforce it on everyone? OH becouse most people don't want it, and it isn't popular, and he wants every service to be as shit as his! Good stuff.
The whole save the children crap is just a way to get stupid gullible people to support greater censorship and greater invasion of privacy and more power to the state, that's all. Nothing more.
Also what would they block, all porn, "bad" porn, hardcore porn, extreme violence, radical opinion, technical information (of use to terrorists, if a teenaged wannabe terrorist can't find out how to make a trigger...), contraception, abortion, sex education, drama, youtube, social networks, your uncle Jim... When do you stop "protecting" people? The safest thing to do with a kid is drown it once it pops out of its mother, that way nothing bad can ever happen to it. I mean even if you lock it in a cushioned room it may still swallow its tongue. Though I suppose you can cut their tongue out too? Blind and deafen them then they'd never be exposed to anything that may pervert them! That's the solution a world of deaf, blind, mute people locked in cages.
