It steps in personally, at home. Paris Hilton never made anyone look at/listen/pay attention/give money/masturbate/or give mention to her.

Oops, one liner, don't let it get you in a heap of trouble like it did me. Anon, the heartache. See, that's part of the problem, you set it up, and it 'appears' to be two lines, then you post and it's only one. Set up for a takedown.

Surely there should be an option to filter content on the ISP homepage. I should be able to log into my personal site space using my user name and password and select which type of content I want to be made available with my account.

In a perfect world that would be the case. With the exponential evolvement in computer tech, in ten years I think we would hardly know it.

Dude.....Duude......DUDE you are really bringing me down here! My God man, there is stuff out there for that. They have a pill for everything. 44 you are to young to die.

On topic: Do you have to be 18 down under to purchase porn over the counter? They regulate that here in the US.

Does it make sense that the Government regulates over the counter, but not over the net?

I've always wondered about that. Back in the day, do you remember the Larry Flynn commotion? My word, Abigale what is that thing?
Close ups. Now, that's nothing compared to what you can see on the net.

This was inevitable.

Two girls and a cup.

Curiosity didn't kill the cat. Curiosity caused the cat to lose it's appetite for a couple of weeks.

Oh man, that was the most horrible thing I have ever seen.
I wanted to wash my brain after that


And if even that was not enough for me to embrace internet censorship, I don't think anything will

You know what, I haven't and do not want to see what you guys are talking about. Please. I hate when that happens.

But it brings up a great point. You can't unring the bell. Most people can't unsee what they just saw. Kids need to be protected sometimes, and I know that's up to the parents, but there is something to be said for a fail safe here.

Nasty is nasty is nasty. You wanta be a Hilton/Lohan skank? More power to you. See, two lines on my initial, one when I post. I can't win.
I never willingly post one liners. This is a tech thingy.

So what do you do then when you want to access porn? Do you call the isp "Hi, this is XXX, I'd like to surf some porn now". That's kind against the whole anonymity of internet porn.

Not just porn, but watch ultimate fighter videos, check out the idiots on gore gallery, or whatever else mandated to be "violent" or "inappropriate."

It's one thing if the ISP voluntarily decides to enact such a policy as a business move. Government forcing them to do it is quite different.

It always starts with "but we're protecting you from yourself and your base nature; can't you see, we are doing it for your own good"

Could we now see what you are reading, and what movies you are renting.

uh oh, perhaps a little reeducation is in order for you. Just for your own good you understand.

Adolf, take this material outside and burn it. Especially those books!

I think this is wrong to begin with. To take a conspiracy approach though. Let us think for a moment. You have to call to take the restriction off. What if they are making a list. Every person who takes the restriction off is on a "watches/enjoies explicit material". You did, after all, take down the restrictions for a reason. They now know who does and doesn't view this material they consider inappropriate.

I feel that is a possible threat. If you don't take the restrictions off, they know you don't watch it. If you do, they can assume you do. What will they do with that knowledge?

www.news.com.au...
Under the plan, all internet service providers will be required to provide a "clean" feed to households and schools, free of pornography and other inappropriate material.

Senator Conroy said the Australian Communications and Media Authority would prepare a blacklist of unsuitable sites.

Will keep an eye on this 'blacklist' to see how it pans out. The language of violent and "inappropriate" sites also being blocked is the main concern and a very slippery slope indeed. Does this mean blocking the Zapruder film or the new Bhutto film for example? I read somewhere about sites with material considered incitement to terror would also be blocked. I wonder if that includes Fox news and other Murdoch c**p. If conspiracy sites etc start being included then you know what's up.

I guess you'll just have to switch your TV back on for a fix of adult nudity and violence. Though I'm sure the elites will still be getting their snuff supply somehow.

This is idiotic because people can filter it themselves, using software and whatnot. The government doesn't have to do it - there's no reason to at all.

Just to pass on a few points of history http: is the internet, www is the world wide web, the www was CREATED to make porn commerce more easily, don't want porn block the WWW portion of http:

secondly, perversion is in the eye of the beholder, an object of any kind is null until you lay your own perspective on it

from they way this sound ATS will be banned ( it has images of the Bhutto assassination after all, not to mention alien sex)

This sounds like it will block WOW and other MMOG's as well as quake all other FPS games and it's derivatives. it will block IM software ( have you seen some of THOSE profile pics?) it will block all news sites ( blood is money after all )

have any of you really thought this through completely?

Huh?

HTTP stands for Hyper-text transfer protocol. The internet is more than just that. There's also FTP, SMTP and a whole bunch of other protocols operating within the frameworks of the TCP/IP protocol.

Blocking the WWW part of the URL will not block porn. In fact you may even be redirected to a site that was 'typosquatting' the address (and it might even have porn)

Pay no attention to the whole "block the www" thing. Thats something akin to blocking the ATTN: from all paper memos.


What I'm interested in seeing, is how the government thinks it possible for an ISP to weed through the entire internet in search of inappropriate material.

It would require the entire internet audience to seek out and discover every shred of pornography out there... its simply not possible for a company to do this.

I wonder if the Australian government thinks the internet is a series of tubes aswell...


I swear, it's not a big truck!
