David Cameron will publish the financial details and viewing habits of all UK porn-watchers

#2

So his plan to treat a cold is with arsenic huh?


#3

Also, this is a great reminder of how well his past anti-porn efforts have worked out for internet users over there


#4

Given that he seems to regard cunnilingus as harmful content, he’s not filling me with total confidence that he has the slightest idea what “harmful” is, or that he cares. The point of control is control, though if you can also buy votes with it, that’s a double win.


#5

But do the British actually visit British porn sites? One presumes that superior ones exist out of British control, given not only this bizarre notion but other related oddities of British law. Moreover, given the enormous amount of free pornography on the Internet, why would anyone subscribe to a porn website to begin with?


#6

Actually now that I think about it, aren’t the British Conservatives among the same group of people that are afraid of being out-reproduced by Damned Brown People and “Muzzies?” How does this help?


#7

Are there really kids in the UK (or anywhere!) who PAY for pornographic content while the pirate sites carry tons of the stuff for free?
Are there really kids who still don’t know how to use proxies and VPNs? Right, the ones who will figure it out when they can’t access what they were looking for.

But surely there are politicians who don’t know what a VPN is and who don’t know what is available on the pirate sites. (I still call them “pirate sites” for lack of a better expression.) And they “rule” us!


#8

This kind of thing is great. It will drive even more normal law abiding people to VPNs and darknets, not for ideological reasons but just because it’s the best way to get what they want.

Ordinary people using strong anonymity/anti-surveillance tech for relatively innocuous reasons is exactly what we need, and pretty much the only thing that can save the internet as we know it.


#9

It’s all about ethics.


#10

He can start with his own kiddie porn collection, then move on to parliament. God i fucking hate when any politician screams THINK OF THE CHILDREN! It basically means ‘we want you to stop thinking and do what we want because if you don’t we paint you as a monster.’


#11

It’s a fairly efficient tactics how to get support from the Unthinking Masses.


#12

Given Rule 36, doesn’t this mean that, really, ALL websites will need to gather and retain proof of customer identity?


#13

You mean rule 34 right?


#14

It’s good that it’s not possible to access porn servers based in other countries from the UK.

Oh, wait, this law is absolutely pointless.


#15

So when will he erect (heh, heh) the firewall that blocks politicians, bankers, and investors - people who actually do harm families and corrupt young minds?


#16

…still trying to reconcile “everything leaks” with “porn sites”. Intellectual circuits currently unresponsive; please try again later.


#17

I had to google it.

But rule 34 says all imaginable porn exists

Rule 36 says that essentially everything is porn to someone.

I am really curious what rule 35 is now…


#18

I recall a court case in NY state in the seventies (probably just before Miller v. California) where the defendant won because the judge stated that “anyone who is turned on by this material isn’t normal”, thus evading the first prong of the Miller test, and the material was reluctantly ruled not porn.

No need to get into the details, but it definitely wasn’t anything produced by Anita Bryant.


#19

All unimaginable porn exists.


#21

I’ve seen this rule thing before, but admit ignorance, not willful. What is this/where do I understand this?

All unimaginable porn exists.

Concurred. I didn’t know clown porn existed, until I did. Lets just say I had a strange girlfriend into strange stuff.

People are obsessed with fucking. Incredibly, debilitatingly obsessed with fucking. The internet has only made it apparent how debilitatingly obsessed with fucking we all are. Its amazing that society even functions- because we would all rather be fucking, all the time. Or at least most people would. Can you deny that?

All Cameron is doing when faced with this reality is the same as someone closing their eyes and denying something directly in front of their face is there. There are innumerable technical reasons, many of which are easy to explain even to the kids he claims to be thinking of, that absolutely prove this is completely and utterly impossible.

If stupidity were able to physically burn matter, this arsehole would have incinerated his entire country by now with his quotient alone.
