That time of the month where I collect downvotes
This thread makes the case for the legislation. None of you grew up with instant access to more porn than even the most hardened wanker could consume in a lifetime. The government isn't aiming to build an impenetrable barrier; the point is to reduce the flow back towards that level.
Of course it would be better if we had better sex education and more responsible parenting. It's all but certain there will be some embarassing leaks. And It's likely it will concentrate power in the hands of one or two companies and put small providers out of business. But none of you are campaigning for solutions to those problems. You're just screaming "No, don' t take away porn from under 18s", on the grounds it might make your lives a tad stickier.
Outside the libertarian trend, everybody looks at the long list of things we stop under 18s accessing, and says "fair enough" to adding porn to the list, and then starts googling VPNs.
