MP without a clue

9 posts in this topic

So this woman MP has got sand in her :whistle: about pr0ns on the net and kids getting access to it and as usual, the responsiblity for protecting our childrenz is being forced onto the ISPs. This is a video of her proposal - note how there's only 8 people listening. She was dumb enough to post it on Youtube and not dissable the comments, lol, enjoy:

Favourite quote: We use a certificate system for TV, why not the internet? :thumbup:

Oh, BTW: I am not in any way suggesting that kids should have access to porn, just that its the parents responsibility to educate them / bring them up properly / use their judgement.

Holy crap, when did it become the governments job to be a parent? Keeping kids away from unwanted content, online or not, is supposed to be the job of a parent. This is why kids are so messed up today.

Yeah, blame everything but the parents...

First it was music (Rock and Roll) then TV then video games, now the internet. I wonder what will be next... Canada?

I actually did watch the whole thing, I think when something like this gets proposed you should go onto red alert and do everything you can to discourage it because these things have a nasty habit of clinging on and getting in the back door if you're not careful.

Reading the comments on the vid cracked me up. I hope the MP will stop by and read them at some point - as soon as she figures out how to get on the tubez. :harhar:

If that bill, or whatever it's called in UK passes... What's to keep them from adding to the /legal/ definition of pornography to block non-porn sites?

Exactly a bill like this sneaks in under the guise of 'protecting the kids' and then gets amended and amended until before you know it, all hacking, activist, protest or whatever sites the government of the day doesn't like get added to the block list. For that matter, the block list could be abused by people with a grudge. I know you can 'opt in' for pr0n under the proposal but seriously... who'd want to do that.

Ah, I could rant for days on this but I don't think it'll ever see the light of day, it's just too impractical.

uhh.. yea.. hi.. im here to sign up for the... um-err... you know... the.. uhh.. the pr0n.. gimme the pr0n...

yea, i see the opt-in thing kind of stupid.. and think that it is just the beginning of major censorship and legislation of the internet... no politician wants to vote against something like this when it is presented to save or protect the children... and most people only look at the surface of things and do not think, or perhaps they do not want to believe that something like this would lead to further restrictions totally unrelated to saving the children...

Same old questions remain, like when the .xxx domain was proposed as a "red light" district on the net:

1) Who decides what is what is/and is not porn. Is a saggy National Geographic titty on the net porn, or not?

2) How do we verify age? AFAIK, one must be 18 or older to have a Internet Account in their name;so, if the parents own the account, it falls back to them to supervise it. Not the government, etc. Unlike radio, and T.V. the Internet, shouldn't be governed by the F.C.C. because (for the most part) there are not "free airwaves". It is a paid service like cable, and most public Internet Hotspots do already filter pr0n.

3) what do we do with urls like www.<some profane sex oriented word here>.com. Does it need to be built into the keyboard to disables certain key sequences (like www.f!@#.com) when a minor is in control? Not likely.

4) How do we supervise this? There are already plenty of content filtration apps parents can purchase.

EDIT: set rules in the house, and if they're broken, take the computer away from the snotty little brat til he/she learns to abide by the household rules. Problem solved.

Exactly... is UberLatexRubberBondage.com a site about joining rubber together for construction or is it a german shister porn site? :ermm:
