Automatic bar on net porn considered

Censorship 3

Dupple (1016592) writes "More from the nanny state

The government is to consider putting extra pressure on computer users to filter out pornography when setting up internet accounts.

Ministers are suggesting that people should automatically be barred from accessing unsuitable adult material unless they actually choose to view it.

It is one of several suggestions being put out for a consultation on how to shield children from pornography."

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

"Ministers are suggesting that people should automatically be barred from accessing unsuitable adult material unless they actually choose to view it."

Maybe you should be a bit more clear about to WHICH nanny "state" you are referring.

In the United States, this would be "prior restraint" which is most definitely, without any doubt, unconstitutional.

Fair point. It's the UK government.

Hopefully the editors will tidy the submission up a bit, if it gets posted.

I only mentioned it because the US has been trying to be a "nanny state" too. Which pisses me off to no end.
