Biggest four UK ISPs switching to

David Cameron unveils deal with big four providers based on report's proposals to protect children from sexual content

Subscribers to four of the UK's biggest internet service providers will have to "opt in" if they want to view sexually explicit websites, as part of government-sponsored curbs on online pornography.

Hm, opinions? Sure it would help stop children from viewing the sites but it is a step forward to blocking internet sites altogether or to a subscription based system. (With mainstream sites etc)

Also proxy sites do exist and would be able to divert around the proposed opt-in system. Sure it is something to block sites for kids but I believe it should be a different program to block the actual sites, something made by the government maybe? Guess this is a cheaper solution though.

Parents should do what they signed up for (well most did). PARENT YOUR CHILD.

If you do not want your child watching porn, there are solutions readily available. Or hey, you could actually watch what their doing or better yet...get em outside!

Totally Agree, it's the parents responsibility to educate their children and not let them surf unsupervised.

I totally disagree with more and more parental responsibilities being pushed onto the government and schools. It's YOUR child, deal with it.

So I will now have to be on a database if I wanna watch porn?

These four are blacklisted.

It's a dangerous precedent.

Currently people have the choice. However, when will this stop being the case?

Remember when the Tories were bemoaning the Nanny State that Labour had created?

All I can do is quote The Who. 'Meet the new boss, same as the Old boss!!' Won't get fooled again? Hmm, Okay.

This is nothing more than the beggining of censorship. I can guarantee this will be used to abuse file-sharing websites and other "concerning" content... most of which will be seeked to be banned by copyright owners. Truely Pathetic.

I have nothing wrong with an opt-in scenario to block the "adult content". If somebody is concerned their child may be watching pornography on the internet, then that is their own problem they should deal with themselves by setting up a dns blacklisting service.

I doesn't take a rocket scientist to setup a service such as OpenDNS (which has an available option to block all 'known' adult sites). If interested see their site: www.opendns.com...

Personally, as i said above, it is a form of censorship and is typically happening because of the pathetic "nanny state" we have become in England.

If i had my way, where some parents became concerned with some content on the internet... i would simply ban children from accessing it.

Its also not hard to supervise your children. Cmon.

While I personally (red blooded male, single and not gay!) would welcome an Internet without porn as after 11pm on the TV here nearly all the adverts are for sex lines which actually gets to be irritating or embarrassing depending on the company you are in and the program/movie you were just watching, I can't see how a static list (I would guess this is just a list they block, lists need updating regularly) would a work, or b not contain non-porn conspiracy sites.

Another good reason for adblocking software is I do not have to see scantily clad young women with their breasts falling out of too small a bra begging me to go to some random porno site. If its free software, there's a porno banner, if its free movies there's a porno banner, if its the BBC there's a porno banner. I am sick to death of sex! No really!

On a slightly related note,I bought a penis enlargement kit from ebay for 15 euros. It came with a large warning. DO NOT USE IN SUNLIGHT!
Yup, it's just a simple magnifying glass...ah well.

I give it 5 years before the opt in to watch porn is treated as you opted to be put on the sex offenders list in 2011
