Re: I have only one thing to say...

I don't know how... They've nailed it with the pr0n verification, this is surely just a bit of scope creep to that project...

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

Jedihomer Townend

Fantastic... so how is this going to work with small sites... like Twitter and Tumblr etc. which have lots of porn on it?

Does the site need to be *only* about porn like *tube? Making this, yet again, another bit of legislation we didn't ask for, want or need?

UK.gov hiring folk to watch smutty vids? All hail our blind censors...

Brits: We can stop trolling if we know where they live - poll

Re: Right...

Yes it is.

I can also see why it triggered filters. Which is why I was ready with documentation. The problem is that even with documentation they still refused it. So the only way to re-activate it was to change my name to something 'acceptable' which now means that anyone who knows me or interacts with me in real life will now find it harder to connect with me on Google+

Although I suppose with my new Identity; I'm free to wonder Google+ trolling away ;)
