In a world dominated by violent media, Americans are no more eager to go to war than they were in the 1980s or the 1960s or the 1940s. Hasn't it always been someone else's problem? The overwhelming majority would rather go on thinking it had nothing to do with them and there...

You know what I can do for the foreseeable future and you Brits can't? Get my socks off without phoning up my ISP and telling them I want to rub one out

http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2013/jul/22/david-cameron-crackdown-internet-pornography

Go ahead a peruse that link for a bit, let it soak in, and consider what this may lead to

I'd like to first point out, this will do absolutely nothing to deter "children" from viewing material, there's how to guides on how to do anything on youtube, so I'm fairly certain there will either be a way around this established in the first week, or proxies will become commonplace. How they figure blocking smuthut.com will prevent pedophiles from accessing the content they do today, which is obviously not on the front page of google is beyond me.

Also how is this any different then say, a moderately intelligent parent enabling parental controls? Is this just so the inbreds don't have to take any action, the arduous task of clicking a button in your security panel?

What I love though, is how you have to shamefully dial up your ISP, and tell them you want porn enabled. There's a registry list that wont be looked up should you ever choose to enter a career in politics.

Really though, my only concern (because sexually frustrated Brits are more comedic then troublesome to me) is that this is the first step in breaking up the internet into channels, you got your adult, your streaming, your news, gaming, ect ect, all individually packaged and priced. Why should johnny mormon pay full price for the interwebs when he's not using the naughty side of things? Bam, porn access is now with a fee, due to "administration charges", and so it begins

The other concern, and a bit far stretched I admit, is that over the years the UK has been increasingly Muslim friendly. I don't mean, hey you're entitled to your religion and we respect that, I mean full neighborhoods have been seized by Sharia Law, which while not legally binding, they still run around harassing and forcing out anyone who doesn't fall under their belief system. All that's happened is a few arrests, which led to nowhere, because it's "wrong" to discriminate against Islam. Islam being very against porn lovers, well you get the picture but I'm sure eyebrows can take it from here and elaborate further

So my Brittish friends, download all the jpegs, mpegs and what have you that your HD can hold

I urge anybody still living in the UK to get out now, while you still can. This is just 1 small thing in a huge list of reasons why the UK is currently the worst '1st world country' to live in.

And no, i'm not even kidding. Ridiculous costs of living combined with fucktarded laws mean that your quality of life, MattAY, could be significantly improved if you moved to Australia or Canada or New Zealand.

And don't even get me started on that particular brand of british muslim who decide that we should take the advancement of humanity and throw it in a fucking bin so we can all go back 500 years, to better times where anybody who disagreed with your views should be beaten and forcefully removed from their home.


Seriously, get out now while you can. I am genuinely concerned that before 2025, full on 1984 mode will engage and passports will be revoked to keep the citizens in the country.

How cute, a bunch of foreigners think they know better about the politics of another country then the resident themselves. The good old "Don't ya know that France is a COMMUNIST COUNTRY!" bullcrap i heard when i first moved to the states.

Coming up next, how the Indian government better change their stance about muslims who should be kicked out back to Pakistan and launch all their nukes there while Japan should totally invade north korea and be done with it instead of performing hara kiri when they don't meet their work quota.

They tried to do something similar in Utah a while back.
Quote:

Utah Governor Wants Net Porn To Be Put In Its Own Port
from the censorship-disguised-as-technology dept
The governor of Utah has signed a resolution (via Broadband Reports) urging Congress to pass a law that would separate the internet into an "adult content channel" and a "family content channel. The proposal involves the "Internet Community Ports Act", which was created by anti-porn group CP80 (incidentally headed by the chairman of the SCO Group), and seeks to ensure that port 80, which generally carries HTTP traffic, becomes a "clean" port, with objectionable content moved to another port so people could easily block it with a firewall. There are plenty of reasons this isn't a good idea, apart from how obviously difficult it would be to implement, but the biggest being that it would force the creation of some sort of arbiter of what is and isn't objectionable -- and as the EFF points out, this would be a de facto censor making wholly subjective decisions. This is the same sort of problem with trying to force porn sites to use the proposed .XXX domain. Still, CP80 thinks it's a great idea, and a member of the group says the Utah resolution shows that "people are crying out" for the government to do something about the scourge of internet porn. Of course, he followed that up by likening the internet to a small appliance: "It's a toaster, we made it, we can fix it." This "problem" he cites is one that individuals can seek to solve on their own, should they see fit; lobbying the government for unnecessary, ineffective and impossible to implement laws, let alone laws enabling censorship, won't do anybody any good.


That failed miserably.

Also, I have no idea why you are ranting against muslims other than being misinformed. They watch porn just like everyone else.
Quote:
Up to 70% of files exchanged between Saudi teenagers' mobile phones contain pornography, according to a study in the ultra-conservative Muslim kingdom.

The study quoted in Arab News focussed on the phones of teenagers detained by religious police for harassing girls.

The same researcher also found that 88% of girls say they have been victims of harassment using Bluetooth technology.

Saudi Arabia has toughened penalties for misuse of mobile phones which challenge its strict social traditions.

"The flash memory of mobile phones taken from teenagers showed 69.7% of 1,470 files saved in them were pornographic and 8.6% were related to violence," said report author Professor Abdullah al-Rasheed.


Granted, it is harder to access porn in the middle east, but people are clever and they've found all the ways around the blocks. So I don't think muslims in the UK would be the ones behind the proposed change anymore than evangelical christans or mormons.

Most religious groups are against porn is what I'm saying.

Works for the US. Would bet my fucking arm i know more about US politics than the vast majority of people in the south.

And i know enough about UK politics - it's basically Australia with more idiots (the fuck is that possible?) and nannying.

Then there's a good chance they go home, drink some beers and browse xhamster.


You wouldn't say i'm ranting against christians if i call those westboro cunts a bunch of cunts. Why do you assume i'm talking about muslims as a general group?

Actually... Eisenhower allowed De Gaulle to enter allright. Just not the arabs and the black soldiers that made up the majority of the free french army. That was the allies's request to DeGaulle, he can walk in Paris first if no people of color were in his parades. Cause you know... U.S.A 1940's segregation mentality and all that... but that's another story.

What i am trying to pull here is that icepick is going all Poe's law here by blaming it all on the muslims/christians/kate's newborn or whatever radical cells he's checking up on his google search tab. Gonna make a bet here and say he's whiter then snow behind his computer screen of his right now.

I get what you are saying, but I'm saying that christans and mormons would like to ban porn as much as muslims so I don't get why you'd just single out one group for having more influence about it than the others. It seems like one of the few things they'd all find themselves in agreement about.

If you want to rant about muslims taking over neighborhoods, then feel free. All I was saying was it didn't seem to fit the rest of the thread about trying to ban porn in the UK. Correlation =/= causation as they like to say.

I'm not saying its muslims behind this ban.

It's clearly not. It's the government trying to sneak through a nation-wide internet filter. You know, like China has.

And even if you call up your ISP and tell them to unblock porn, anything the govt. decides you shouldn't see is still blocked. One thing that's come up is rape porn, but you can bet any money anything else 'unwholesome' will be banned too. BDSM and Watersports comes to mind. And they're also going for the protect the children angle, so they might decide to go the fucking stupid Australian way of going 'A-cups? Lol, you're a child. CHILD PORN! banned'.
So what next? Maybe some of those websites that incite violence. Like any news website that isn't the fucking dailymail.

It's all a bunch of bullshit designed to sneak through with minimum resistance, and the govt is using the support of dumbass muslim groups to help it seem legit.


It's not, and because high powered rifles are difficult to obtain in the UK, the only solution is to leave while it's still actually possible to do so.

At least we have another 5-10 years before Australia gets to that level, at which point i'll be fucking killing myself because there will be nowhere else on this earth to live where i'll have that 'freedom' and 'privacy' stuff.

Well, it sounds like the entire thing sucks pretty bad, but I'm sure even if it went through, people would find ways around it.

Actually, the whole thing just sounds like a political stunt. I don't see how it'd ever pass. People love their porn too much.

And also like you said, it creates that slippery slope argument about how once you start censoring one thing it makes it easier to start censoring everything else.

Given that, I'd be pretty surprised if this thing actually went through.

1) This will fail
2) If there's anything us as people are good at, it's creating/distributing porn. When there's a will, there's a way, and there is definitely a will.
3) Canada sucks, the US sucks, and Australia sucks. We all suck. Just in our own unique sucky ways (Canada sucks the least though).

I did elaborate: Gay porn is where it's at.

Now if you'd like me to go on about the child brides, legal rape, clits being sawed off, hatred towards jews, lack of a sense of humour, how much of an asshole Lewis Farrakhan is, etc, I can. But then we can also talk about extremists in all the groups.


Btw, you canucks get full freedom of speech yet? No? Didn't think so.

I'm not sure what you're alluding to, how is Canada lacking in freedom of speech? If you're referring to the section of the Charter that allows the government to prevent hate speech, that's kind of silly, given that it has to first be acted upon by request of a government official, then before any trial on the matter it has to pass a vote in the house of commons, and then that has to be given the ok by a judge, you make it sound like the SS can march in and arrest anyone for saying something against the state, it's a fairly complex process it has to go through and if you'd like to cite a time it was "unjustly" used I'm all ears

You preach against extremist but you yourself are one, just on the opposite side, whereas I'm seen as an asshole, I can at least tolerate and allow another side to exist, you twist and distort every fact you can in order to have talking points, none of which you truly can back up

And just out of curiosity, how can you chastise Canada in a rather obtuse way for having this piece of our charter that is very seldom utilized, meanwhile your country has the patriot act, and can cite anyone as a terrorist as they see fit. I'd much rather live in a country that respects free speech but understands the difference between that and hate speech, over a country that is so back ass retarded that it can imprison you indefinitely if they suspect you're against the system

I was jesting back, man you're a serious asshole Smile

Evidence of fact twisting please.

See, you have this image of me as some right wing loony, which I'm not. My target, my "extremism" is the same shit you're posting about here. Just because I don't agree with democrats and the political left in this country doesn't mean I'm happy with horrible things like the patriot act, NSA, the militarization of our police force, the drug war, etc. which people like barack obama support.

I guess I am extreme though for wanting full individual freedom. Holy fuck.
