David Cameron promises law to force ISPs to use a secret blacklist of websites

[Read the post]


#2

lemme guess, he’s tired of people at work sending him the link to the lemon party site?


#3

Am I wrong, but isn’t this the guy [Cameron] that puts his willie in pigs?


#4

No video? Not even a Gif? :frowning:

It is so frustrating, I hate the angst-driven newspeak politics mostly pushed by conservatives.

“enable parents to have that [porn filter] protection for their children”, “family friendly filters”, “online pornography [is] corroding childhood” - in the Wired article alone, I didn’t even read the other links in the OP.

He reads the daily mail, this somehow surprises me. I always thought of it as a paper the elite used as a tool to keep the upwardly mobile plebs from hating the right people a sort of printed divide and conquer.


#6

Yep, thats the one. What a stunning beacon of morality he is…


#7

he had to check if all his content “proposals” were printed?


#8

I have a teenage son, and I can assure you not even the most powerful censorship regime nor the strictest parental controls can keep him from seeing porn.


#9

He’s the same one whose advisor on his Great Firewall was caught with child porn on No.10’s computer network.

I honestly don’t get it. how is opt-out “making something available to parents?” Is this driven by a fear from some parents that other parents wouldn’t opt-in properly if that were to be the choice?


#12

If sex isn’t “family friendly”, then how did all of these families get here?


#13

He probably just said that to make it sound like he’s in with “normal people”. Same with the cornflakes.


#14

I am not a proponent of censorship, but I am a proponent of sending a MITM 304 redirect on 10% of all random web traffic to kitteh gifs.

It’ll cut down on the pr0n and people will like it. Why am I not PM? (Japhroaig, you aren’t a UK citizen (shuddup!!))

Thanks, now I know what I’ll be watching tonight.


#16

Bloody hell !


#17

Or a stunning Bacon of Morality

Somewhat offtopic, but does anyone know a good way to block this sexist outbrain bullshit that you seem to see at the bottom of every website?

This was at the bottom of the original post for me:


#19

Goodness, i just tried loading up boingboing via internet explorer sans-adblocker compared to my regular browser, i hadn’t realised there were so many adverts!

I didn’t get any outbrain ads though, (adchoices instead) so not sure if that is something delivered by the region you’re browsing from possibly?

Anyways, firefox plus an ad-blocker works wonders for me (i use https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/ )

Not sure why, but that statement jumped out at me, too. And irritated me as well, for no clear reason.
