Boompje, was just wondering why you don't just just change the name of the file very slightly so instead of 'VarusExpirationTimer.luaobj' and 'XerathMageChainsExtended.luaobj' it becomes something like 'VaruPORNpirationTimer.luaobj' and 'XerathMageChainPORNtended.luaobj' because that will sort all the problems.

We are allowed to phone up our ISP and opt out of this porn safegaurd thing by the way. To be honest I agree with it even though I do like my copious amounts of weird and wonderful porn, it makes complete sense to have the protection there for kids without asking for it but with the option to remove the block with a simple phone call. they censoring the internet in the OMG THEY TOOK MY RIGHT TO FAP sense. just a soft censorship.


It makes NO sense for the government to prescribe what we can or cannot look at online.

If you are a parent and want your children to be safe and secure online you can a) Install your own protection software and b) Supervise their usage.

By the time they are old enough to not need supervising they'll have covered it all at school anyway, either in the classroom or in the playground.

The government seem to think we need more and more babysitting in every aspect of our lives. If the world was so bad 10 years ago why didn't we all die out?

Ultimately though it's a stepping stone, a harmless little piece of opt-out censorship that opens the door by giving them precedence for adding additional more harmful censorship in the future. The same thing has happened in several other countries already. And we let them do it in the UK too.

The other problem is clearly the ridiculous way the ISPs are putting the new law into action. Find letter chain "s-e-x", "p-o-r-n", "t-i-t", and block all results. Because those letter combinations could never be found in any other context.

I would be surprised if there weren't children doing homework who couldn't view real website search results relevant to their homework because they couldn't display the chains of letters within their own search term, or relevant terms on the websites.

Suddenly everyone with a kid opts out so they can do their homework and the whole thing falls apart anyway.

So if people want to learn about the pretty little bird called the blue teet ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Teet ), does the block stop them too?

Oh, hahaha, that's filtered out here too. (replace the double 'e' with an 'i')

Just wow... So what if a child is supposed to make a talk about human reproduction for biology classes, how the hell are they supposed to do that when every single page containing valuable information (i really just mean like wikipedia) is blocked?
