UK.gov admits porn age checks could harm small ISPs and encourage risky online behaviour

From previous experience at working in schools IT the kids are very savvy at getting around filters and blocks that were meant to prevent them from getting to see porn, so i doubt this is every going to work to stop kids accessing porn if they want to.

There are also just too many new sites popping up every day for people to keep blacklists up to date, block one and a new one can be online within minutes to replace it. Look at the issues they have had trying to block the Piratebay and this is just one website.

All this law does is push the cost of everyones internet connection up as the ISPs will have to pay for extra kit to manage these block lists.
