Re: It's all just (encrypted) data
The message was that central action, e.g. by the ISP to offer a blocking service was prohibited, so let the kiddie porn and bandwidth wasting rubbish flow. Not what some want or need as they may not be able to roll their own DIY blocking as a local service. OK, you and some others can bully for you.
If the ISP can, (it is still not clear from my reading of the article) offer such blocking as available, opt in options then the damage will be limited. Maybe this phrase from the account is being misread by me; Many modern devices do not allow client-side blocking, including almost everything running on the Android platform. End quote.
That sound like a issue for some folks to me or can such bandwidth hogging rubbish be blocked before it burns through an allowance?
I am never if favour of removing options where they would otherwise be legal, that is but for a bar on having such options.
Please see the word options, it is important.
