    This is censorship, plain and simple. There should be no restrictions to what is placed on the web. It should be the users responsibility to prevent their children from looking at pornography, no excuses.


    The Australian Government already spent $18 million dollars on developing and distributing software that was only aimed parents and teachers at schools to make browsing safer for kids. So this shows the old government was pretty serious about it.

    That said, with a new, younger Prime Minister leading the Australian public hopefully he or his team can find this a breach of what the internet is all about.

    I can't imagine something like this getting passed without a mention of the 18 million dollars they've already spent trying to protect children and did that work? All this will bring is angry customers and a lot more tech support questions
    ahah

    legalizer,

    You have a valid point. Porn doesn't carry potential disease as with a real partener. But, I can't say porn has really brought anything positive to me in the time that I have watched it. Seems more like a distraction from more important things, like meaningful relationships. It does nothing really but bring moments of temporary excitement. It doesn't really fill the void of not having someone special to share intimacy with.

    If we will focus on real relationships instead of sex with multiple parteners, we will see a drop in STDs and such. This is where the "real thing" is better than porn. Besides, feeling a real connection with someone is a better feeling than getting your jollys off to a video or a girl you care nothing about. But, the power of love has been known to "cure" the sick man. There is something magical about falling in love. You can't get that with porn. Those of you who have been hit by cupid's arrow know what I'm talking about.

    Anyway, more on topic, stating it again, how do we know that the real intention is to stop pornography and violent sites?

    That is 100% your opinion without a fact in the lot of it.

    Falling in love has lead to plenty of death and disaster.
    Plenty of jealous rages and rejected loves leading to suicides.
    50% of all marriages end in divorce, there are tens of thousands of domestic violence cases annually in every country. Murder is not out of the norm.

    And why? Because of the illusion that we need someone else to love us and the insane expectations that those people should love us as much as we love them and other claptrap.

    You apparently spent too much time watching porn and being lonely.
    I've never had a moment where porn got in the way of anything.
    A little self control in life goes a long way.


    Scientists say that the brain chemistry of infatuation is akin to mental illness—which gives new meaning to "madly in love
    Excerpt from National Geographic

    Love is a whole lot of dopamine.
    Its nothing more than a drug high.

    Read about it.
    And get over your drug addiction.

    You almost seem to say love is not a worthwhile undertaking?

    Relationships and love are not the problem. Folks just have had problems handing this area of their lives, myself included. But it doesn't make relationships unworkable, because they sure can work.

    Porn is not a replacement for a close personal relationship. Never will be. Ejaculation/orgasms are not the same as the feeling of a deep connection to someone. You can experience both with someone, but they, again, are not the same thing.

    Anyway, back on topic, I just have my doubts about the intentions of Big Brother with the porn and violence filter, as I have said more than once.
