Sad to say our British friends will be saying goodbye to online pornography and perhaps any other content that is not child friendly..to include perhaps most of the internets social media
Blocking at ISP level to be instituted


“The Government is committed to keeping children safe from harmful pornographic content online and that is exactly what we are doing,” Karen Bradley MP, Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, said (via ISPreview). “Only adults should be allowed to view such content and we have appointed a regulator, BBFC, to make sure the right age checks are in place to make that happen. If sites refuse to comply, they should be blocked.”


So, well done. by the way, since there is porn on social media, of which there is no age checks, this will also default block without getting back things like twitter, facebook, tumblr, etc..perhaps even youtube


One of the main concerns over the legislation is what exactly, beyond pornography, is classed as “adult content,” who decides on that classification, and how are blocks on such content implemented. Such a broad scope, open to interpretation, is ripe for being abused; for example, the current UK parental controls system blocks sites designed to support young LGBTQ people who fall victim to bullying and abuse on the grounds that anything related to sexuality is the realm of adults only.
“This could lead to tens of thousands of websites being blocked, despite their content being perfectly legal,” Jim Killock, Executive Director of the Open Rights Group, said. “In no way should this proposal be legislated for in this bill. There has been no thought or consultation, and the government has not even begun to define how blocking might be attempted.”


Sorry mates. its been swell knowing you. Might want to get a government that doesn't view its entire population as children though. Good luck, God save the queen.

This is not good news. Reading the article it says that an age verification process will be put in place.

However I am stoked to see what British euphemisms I can learn from this thread!

This kind of thing sounds like a bad idea for you guys, pretty soon they will probably start censoring other content. A bad example, for sure, since access to information is one of the greatest opportunities to do good this world has ever seen.

Aren't there extensions or programs that you can use to circumvent the censorship net?

I'm not sure what Trump will do about the internet, except that he wants to abolish net neutrality. That would really shake up how things work online. It could go south.

Well, UK internet providers will now be keeping logs on everyone's internet browsing history. So, if they manage to find a way through any blocks on porn...

The internet is great, but its not owned "by the people". It's owned by a bunch of companies and corporations, and regulated by governments.

Every single bit of data you send/receive travels through infrastructure owned by someone else.

The worst part is that they aren't saying you gotta go to some ISP or post office to show your ID and ask them to allow adult content.
They are saying websites...global websites...millions of websites now must put in a age gate or be blocked. no more anonymous postings, full paper trail to every site that isn't...some cooking network or something completely free from anything consider adult.

This is beyond any level of comprehensive censorship. this is worst case scenario stuff being pushed.

is ATS considered adult material? keep in mind, adult content isn't just porn..the wording isn't specifically for porn, its for adult content. hell, a news site may fall into that category if it is reporting on serious issues, muslim criminal activity, etc.

I didn't read that in the article. If true, that's serious censorship and I don't expect it to be taken lightly.

He wants to abolish net neutrality (not sure about quote, but he is republican, and the right has been dying to get the net out of the public control and into the hands of subscription based corporations).
What I do know is he is going to executive order a "cyber terrorism" shield to protect America...which sounds very much like a firewall that will clamp down on internet to such a degree that would be a totalitarian dictators biggest fantasy..but hey, its for safety..so all good (btw, that's the average Chinese view...the government does it to secure and protect the people.)

The internet is one of the best things on earth..if free and open. It is the place of equality and opportunity. The globalists want to take that power and will do it in any way possible...be it crys of security, "for the children", or anything else that will get people to give up their freedom.

but hey, its only porn..who is gonna fight to defend that, amirite...

this bit here:

sites...websites.
its not a block on the people who can "opt in" to adult stuff
its for websites to conform to whatever nonsense age gate they demand or auto-block.


This is what people need to be in the streets for. not for slightly higher/lower student loans or whatever the hell the brits protest for.

I wonder if this somehow coorilates with the influx of Islamic influence demanding no more booze/porn/etc...

Qui Bono is the question and for sure the real reason is an inversion of the truth.

Most likely a dark road to Internet user I.D.

Another way of shutting down "alt-right" voices of dissent.

Offend the wrong institution by pointing out the blatant hypocritical lies they peddle and three strikes and you're out,no more Internet for you!

There are already sites with certain parameters in place to identify them as NSFW or pornography. Thus the .xxx etc.

I'll be looking for the physical verification you claim they are requiring. That's something that should impact everyone.

ETA: www.independent.co.uk...

Here is another article. They say they will use, as one method, credit card authorization. I'm not sure how this will work either. You can pickup pre-paid cards everywhere.

But what will all your politicians do considering they are all into kiddy porn? Seems very suspect to have kid pokers implementing rules for protecting children. Before you jump on me we are trying to catch them here too so we have them as well but they are not trying to take away our porn.

This is how mass censorship begins. It starts with being written the name of safety. I implore citizens to take the time to revoke this, as well as for the rest of the world before, if it's positive enough to lobbyists, catches on. ATS very well could be in the realms of "adult material" being it's coming off as a draconian law.

Those sickies are pretty sneaky. They may be some of the ones to be pushing for this for further control or what have you because they have the power and money to evade censors.
