A lot of websites already have age restrictions on them, just not in massive numbers on the homepage a-la DVDs and films.

Our very own UG, for instance, has an age requirement of 13+ to sign up.

But that is completely ineffective towards stopping younger children from signing up. The only reason that it is in the terms and agreements is so that the website can't be blamed if it does happen and something goes wrong.

I don't see how it's possible really. Just out of interest please post if you've watched a 'beheading' or whatever, because I think that it's only really on Al Qaeda sites where you can view such activities. I really think that they're worried about kids going on porn, but to say such sounds fatuous.

Kids today are already being censored from everything. So a kid sees boobs, whats the worst that can happen? He becomes a horny sex freak at 8 instead of 13?

I just don't see how it will work, unless your identiy is stuck on a database and you have to use an ID to gain access to the internet which then filters webistes accordingly; which is absurd.

My parents keep my computer in the living room so they can monitor anything anybody is doing. If parents don't want kids to go to the wrong websites, maybe they should do their job.

And? It's all that the people in charge of a website can do. It's the parents responsibility to monitor the activities of their children.

Yes I do agree so kids can learn what to do and prepare them for a relationship.

Well, maybe not the porn thing, but I remember being about 11 and finding a sex education site which quite nicely filled the blanks left by woefully inadequate sex education classes. By woefully inadequate I mean essentially none existent.

My parents would never have let me on that site. My mum freaked the hell out when she discovered that I'd looked at a BBC news article about teen pregnancy rates.

I don't think that it really matters, they are gonna see tits before eighteen it's not that hard to do. The penis goes in the ass? wouldn't that actually be teaching them wrong.

Yeah lets make out childen more naive than they are already. It is not the websites problems if the child sees it, it's the childs and the parents.


it's hard for a parent to be there 25/8. it always has been. now, this restriction makes sense to me, but only for younger audiences.

What's wrong with using those webfilter things that already exist to stop kids from reaching certain sites?

Right when I'm parent with a kid, lets say it's a male. If my child has not seen porn by the age of 15 I'd think there's something wrong with him. So I'd encourage my kid to do it. Now if this censorship passes, what the hell will happen to my parenting? I'd have to wait until he's 18 before he can go jizz in a sock an accurate thought of tits.

How would they go about doing this? Plus note the 'english-speaking websites'. German porn-sites would be fine! Anyway bad idea, taking away our freedom/nazism/exactly the same as murdering babies etc . . . .

well, really, if you want to drive your son's skinboat to tunatown, then lead on, skipper. But if masturbation is in your parenting agenda, you either:

a)want to watch him do it,
b)think he's too dumb to tug his tucker on his own, or
c)hope that he won't get prostate cancer.

now, i figured out how to whack off on my own, why can't he?
also, porn is immoral.

If the porn is consenual, I don't consider it immoral. You'd watch your own son jack off? Sicko. And when did I say "I'd want him to watch porn to learn how to masturbate?"

He'd say: "I want to masturbate! But I need a girls mouth :/"

I'm sorry but I know many people who've watched porn had have come out fine. It is not the Governments decision in my opinion. Leave it as it is. We'd just get around it anyway and it'd waste taxpayer money. AGAIN.

i see your point boreamor, it's just fun to make masturbation innuendos.





anyways, i was just joking around, and i agree with you anyways. but or non-porn kind of content, wouldn't you find it appropriate to censor it?

30 Days Of Night is a Vampire film (Very ****, I do not recommend) that has a beheading in it.

It's a 15. So why make it so kids can't see it until they're 18 on the internet?

Is an 8 year old going to stumble into that though? I had to look.

If your child is mentally stable and you are paying attention to what sites they are members of, they should be fine, I mean if they are typing in 'live beheading video' in google, the fact they are going to find the video is the least of their problems, most 8 year olds wouldn't stumble into that **** unless they go looking and if they are looking, that is the thing you need to address.

Oh no I mean it would be nice to stop children seeing bad stuff, but a good filter will do it just as well as any of this new crap they are thinking of, and it is just something that isn't very applicable.

It would be nice if people could prevent their children from seeing 'the hole that dare not speak its name' though . . . . . . . .
