Surprise! Google chairman blasts EU's privacy ruling

DarkNerd

I've always hated all that content Google produces, going round town writing bad things about people. It's about time they were held to account for their lies

Click here to BEAT OFF David Cameron's web SMUT ban

DarkNerd

Getting round the filters was always going to be trivial (for the younger generation)

The idea was to try and keep it quiet so parents could more easily be nagged into letting little Timmay have a PC in his room on the 'new safe internet' to 'do his homework'

Timmay is currently putting all other machine in the household on the bandwidth limited guest network and peering the prawns at full throttle

The only people in the household that are filtered are mum and dad...

In my day the playground had a black market in soft porn mags

These days it's more likely to be little post-it's of router settings, plugins, proxies and vpns

But at least the Tories can stand up and say 'We made the UK a a safer place for the children' and only ~30% of the voting population realise that to be bullshit

Daily Mail and Mothers Union, what have you done...

Health minister warns ISPs: Block suicide websites or face regulation

DarkNerd

I wrote to my MP outlining why it's a ridiculous piece for the government to be cocking about with

(I even persisted in the consultation piece even though it was a disaster)

I got a 'won't someone think of the children' reply, seems to be the common response in all things from this government, how could anyone possibly not want to protect children from nasty things.

In other news I saw a report about a parent having to skip meals just so they could put a bowl of soup in front of their child due to cost of living overtaking salaries

Won't someone think of the children

Fucking government is the shits

ICO

The ICO has an implementation of this live right now

www.ico.gov.uk

See how nice it looks? /sarcasm

See how it fails gracefully when you click Continue without ticking the box /sarcasm

I like a bit of sarcasm

i think the ICO are doing us a favour by showing how crud it is, shame they dont sell stuff or carry advertising

Mumsnet founder: Our members are 'very keen' on PORN ...

DarkNerd

It's blatantly obvious

that any mechanism that can be implimented will immediately be bypassed by 14 year old boys in their bedroom on a PC that their parents think is 'safe'.

The knowledge of how to (offshore VPN a connection) will immediately be shared and passed around to lots and lots of other 14 year old and younger and the whole mechanism will be rendered redundant withing 2 weeks.

The only people left being filtered will be the parents, who should have known better in the first place

I'd suggest contracting a VPN in the Ukraine, or using Tor

People who think this kind of filtering is a good idea are damning themselves to having to learn about stuff they've got no hope of understanding if they think they can stop little Johnny from looking at porn with ISP filtering

might say that the ICO are toothless and that the fine is tiny and inconsistent to the crime committed

Others might think that by not wringing the parasite dry there might be some cash in the assets which will be distributed amongst the wasted costs claimants which Judge Birss has opened the way for
