Speaking as a teenaged British citizen, this sucks, it simply sucks. What makes it worse is the fact that I don't have any say as my mum will obviously choose to block once she gets the choice. Plus, I don't see how this will help combat child pornography.

Simple truth is it wont this is more to do with the fact that he simply just doesn't like porn. But this isn't only for porn but other content such as violence. But I really am not sure how well that will work out. I mean porn is around quite a bit on the internet on sites that aren't porn sites such as social networking sites. hmm drawing the line with all this seems to be difficult.

Oh and if you are worried about that, that is what proxies are for :)

I love a thread when half the work is already done for you, right @theacidskull?

As for the plans, its probably just moody conservatives upset that they couldn't prevent Civil Unions being upgraded to Marriages. Plus, these plans have been brought forward before- and tanked.

I'm not worried. Carmen Hayes, Veronica Snow and the FTV collective will remain active parts of my browser history yet =D.

"Most households in the UK will have pornography blocked by their internet provider unless they choose to receive it,"

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-23401076

I don't see where the problem is, a quick call to my provider to opt out of the ban, and all is right with the world.

I can understand why they're doing this but honestly, the biggest threat is the people who make abusive pornographic material and post it on the Internet, not the people's ability to access it. Cameron needs to target them over our ability to view pornography. Typical useless David can't do much right it would seem. Hes' impinging on censorship and not targeting the people responsible for the material. Such a waste.

Seems to me he is targeting pornography more so as opposed to pedophilia. I cant understand how censoring the internet is the right answer to tackle the problem.

Exactly my concern as well. Censoring the Internet is not only a poor censorship move but it won't actually tackle the problem. Especially since people can just opt their Internet Provider to allow it.

Yeah I am concerned how further they will try to take it in regards to how much they will try to censor the internet. Its not just pornography that this filter, filters out but other things such as violence. Basically if people sign up to this they are signing up to have their internet censored.

Yup he is. Again we have a choice if we basically want to keep our internet as it currently is or we can have the censored version. I do wonder how this will all pan out in the upcoming months though. I am worried the attention on this issue will fade away due to all the attention on the royal baby being born. I am not one for conspiracies or anything but we should be concerned how this could snowball.

It's quite depressing we're more concerned about the birth of one baby, no matter what his position in society over more important stories such as this one. But Cameron's probably hedging his bets on the royal baby story taking attention away from this one.

I don't see the problem -- everyone is reacting to a censorship that is not there. You have the option to enact the filter, or not.

Lots of noise about nothing. I think it's a great idea. Everyone complains that porn is easy for young kids to get their hands on, something is being attempted to address that and people scream censorship? Read the article -- do your own research -- it's pretty obvious.

Well I have researched into this more and the entire thing just seems pointless. Not sure how the filter will be implemented either.

Not to mention the fact that this filter will become default and it will actually filter things out that aren't pornographic such as medical stuff and websites and research regarding sexuality. Cameron even admitted this will cause problems. And yeah I am concerned about this snowballing too.
