People in the UK will have to prove they are 18 before being allowed to access pornography websites from next year, the government is to announce.

Websites will be legally required to install age verification controls by April 2018 as part of a move to make the internet safer for children.

Users may be asked to provide credit card details, as gambling websites do.

Companies breaking the rules set out in the Digital Economy Act face being blocked by their internet provider.

Why are governments so vexxed by porn?

I bet those MPs are into some really freaky shit and try to assuage their guilt by introducing more and more ridiculous unenforcable laws.

Exchanging disks and magazines and having to hide them somewhere your parents somehow always manage to 'accidentally' find is more fun anyway. Deleting browser history was too simple, there's no romance to it.

At first I didn't even know browser history was a thing, but my dad showed me how to delete it at one point. Took me a while to realise why he was showing it to me...

All this means that while we can enjoy the freedom of the web, the UK  will have the most robust internet child protection measures of any  country in the world 


Nothing says "freedom" like needing to give porn sites personal information  

Everyone involved in this move needs to be summarily executed

unworkable, just like the sharing sites ban. and just like those sites, very few have either their companies or servers based in the UK, so they can just not give a shit if they want.

would only really effect free stuff anyway, mainly the big streaming sites, and people will either get alternate links set up or just start going to torrents more.

I suppose it would protect the young kids who wouldn't know how to get around it easily though.

It's another pathetic attempt at distracting from everything else the government is/isn't doing by using a controversial topic that will make it into public headlights quickly and easily.

so you can fuck all you want, but you can't watch people fuck. got it. makes about as much sense as prostitution being illegal as long as it's not filmed

I like how people don't just accept that if children can and will purposely watch porn, there's probably no problem. What children really need is appropriate sex education, not this shit.

Surely you're not expecting parents to actually spend time on their kids and, god forbid, talk to them or something ridiculous like that?

The hell's wrong with you? Are you some kind of deviant?

No problem selling rapefugees the ingredients for acid with no ID, yet say a mean thing online or a failure to have a proper license for viewing porn or operating a butter knife winds you up in jail. God save the Queen :']

Do you have any idea how many lives have been saved since the butter knife licence was introduced? Because it's a lot. Those pesky little buggers used to be a real threat to society.

What's the point?, kids are going to find a way to get porn this is about as senseless as Japan censoring porn by pixelating the naughty bits.
