It'll never be perfect, and to be honest, this thing has plenty of holes in it, both in practicality and concerns about the wider agenda.

I just want to see kids protected from abusive porn, and a stop to the sick images of child abuse that we keep hearing about in the media.

From what I see though, nowadays the kids are at the forefront, searching it out themselves.
They're not coming across it accidentally, and being corrupted!

Look at this post recently on a thread here called "Looking for 12-13 yr old boys to play with!"

"I'm 12 and I would like to trade nudes with other 12 yr olds

Ki ik me!

Cameron has got his work cut out, looks like!

The problem is also, that too many politicians have a 'go to church' closeted background mentality and know very little of the real world outside their front doors today, and this is especially true of the leaders.
When the British PM and his cohorts start to realise the true and immense scope and extent of 'the problem', and that kids aren't the victims of the porn, but are actively both participating in it, and creating their own, en masse, they're going to freak out, and probably contemplate doing some total ban.

But it's impossible now, what with s*xting, snapch*t, omegle and clones, and skype.
I've been saying this was coming for years.
No one believed.
Now it's here already.
And still the oldies don't understand.
No one past 30 basically.

And who knows what else is coming?
I know one or two, and they're going to make what we have now look as primitive and innocent as Sunday School.
The old world has gone.
It's dead!
And, as Cameron is shortly going to find out, NOTHING is going to bring it back again!
It's going to be horrendous for them as they begin to find out, and realise all their big words, and tough talk, mean zilch any more.
Power has gone back to the people.
For them to use any damn way they please!
It's all coming true.
Right now!!!!
Imagine 10 years down the track, when we'll have androids to cuddle up to,
Before that computer generated 'android programmes' connected to that special suit.

Don't think so hal,its not so much as Cameron doing the work,he more or less said that the Company's like Google ,bing etc have to pull there fingers out.
Just like when the downloading malarky was going on a few years back.
A lot if not most of the big boys no longer allow illegal downloading.
Im with Virgin Media and THEY have blocked most of them anyway,no loss to me.
So they will more or less do the same with porn sites.

No major ISP is willingly going to remove porn from their menu. The revenue it generates is too large for that. Sure, wanker Cameron is on his 'moral crusade', and to the extent it makes me wonder just what he has on his private laptop. Them who shout loudest often got something to hide...

Amen!
It always fascinates me that all our overlords/would be rulers, are always prepared to laud to the skies the irresistible powers of our magnificent free enterprise system, with its irresistible force of supply always lifting itself to match demand, yet with things illegal, they expect those natural forces to be immediately suspended, and no longer work.
Drugs, alcohol, adult sex, black marketing, and now children looking to hook up for sex adventures with inappropriate adults.
All major success stories.
For the crims!
If you can't stop drugs, and we haven't been able to do that, even at a cost of millions of lives, nor alcohol before that, what possible hope can there be of stopping "innocent young girls" putting themselves about a bit, on public forum cams, or privately on skype or whatever?
As I said, web site porn isn't where the problem really is.
Children learn porn nowadays by age 8.
10, and they're out there looking.
And their hookup partner now could be in Timbuctou, or in Afghanistan!
How do you stop that, unless we start jailing 10 year olds for inappropriate thinking.

It wouldn't make a difference though. There's still ways to change your IP or this browser I found actually allows you to surf the web without government restrictions.
