Heh - Saturn sometimes we think worlds apart and sometimes on the very same page.
I had almost the exact same thought with one exception. You'd need the walls and floors padded. Wouldn't want the kids bumping into something and getting hurt. Just turn them out when they are 18 - surely they'll come out ok after being protected from everything.

why is everyone going on about this being a bad thing? The story clearly states that anyone who wishes to vew porn can so by opting in to have those sites unblocked. I dont have a problem with this. I like to watch porn and I can view pretty much anything that porn has to offer for free. Access to porn is easy that even a small child go probably hit a porn site just by having a typo in an internet address. To say parents should be the blockers is laughable unless you are going to peer over their shoulders throughout the time they spend on the net.
Another thing how is this any different than a cable company blocking tv porn channels unless you pay for them? Isps will only be dooing the same type of thing only instead pf paying to view the porn you just ask the isp to unblock your computer.

UK plans to block all porn in effort to 'protect children'
(visit the link for the full news article)
The UK's coalition government is discussing a plan that would see all pornographic websites automatically blocked in an effort to keep children from accessing them.
Under the proposed plan, which appears to have the backing of Britain's major Internet service providers, the government would provide ISPs a list of objectionable websites, which the ISPs would automatically block. An Internet surfer would then have to "opt in" to be allowed to see the content.
The attempt to restrict access to internet pornography is part of wider moves by the government designed to prevent the early sexualisation of children.
It recently announced an independent review that will examine matters such as adult clothing and goods being marketed at children and the influence of raunchy music videos on youngsters.

You do know that it works by looking for certain amounts of fleshy tones right?
Turn google safe search up to max, and type in "Leg spread Lucy" (ok, maybe not that, but something kinky), and you won't find porn. Mind you, knock safe search off and no matter what you put in, no matter how innocent, you will get beef curtains.

When they say 'children' do they mean up to the age of 18?
Because at 16 years of age kids are legal for consentual sex.
Old enough to do it but not to watch it.
I remember when I found my first playboy magazine at the age of 8.
I seen the breasts of a grown woman...
I then violently raped and killed a dog from the visuals driving me crazy.
or wait..no I didn't...I guess I didn't explode after all.

You can have children and still oppose this idea. I have a child and I oppose it.
We have enough of a nanny state as it is in the UK.
This is about the future generations and not giving up any more freedom. Its not about the porn, its about what inevitably follows.edit on 19-12-2010 by justwokeup because: typos

I'm an American and have no problems in admitting that I am not overly proud of the way our country is run, but it seems like there has been some serious censorship issues as of late and a lot of it seems to be coming from Europe. I have to admit that I for one do not trust the EU. Any type of power that has that much control over that much of an area is trouble in my opinion. However I have to say that it seems Google has a big hand in censorship lately as well.
