I personally think this is a good idea for those who chose to participate. As for the "free speech" argument,I must admit to being ignorant as to how this works in Britain. Do they have it like it is here? Because I don't think that it should apply to lewd photos,especially of children. However,as I stated I'm not sure how the law works there. Of course,there is also the argument that "lewd" would be in the eye of the beholder but I see nothing decent in using children to sexually stimulate an adult. I also believe that the world is deteriorating morally but if you forced this filter on someone who didn't want it then what stops them from continuing to filter things,based on one small group's opinions? That could turn into a domino effect that errodes even simple rights. Yes....let those who want it take it but also try and save our children from being dragged into the sordid world of porn. As for those over the age of consent,well,make sure the ones participating are there of their own choice.

well, as the local badmovies UK resident I can tell you this entire story is a load of fish'n'chips because Internet service providers here have already been putting blocks in place for years.

When I set up my Internet account a few years back I found that nearly half the Internet was blocked (including this place believe it or not) because - in more or less the words of the blocking screen which came up  -"it may contain dangerous/harmful/pornographic material"

to unblock this filter, I didn't have to click a box, I had to phone up my service provider and kindly ask them to take the block off, and it took them about a week to do it. And it wasnt just my service provider that used this procedure, loads of others did too.

So basically this story is just David Cameron trying to make himself look like a moral guardian of the state to win more votes, not even realising his 'new measures' have already been in place for ages in most cases.


Well the British govt' made sure they found a way to get all the peoples' guns a few years back, so now they need another thing to pick on. 

Sorry but I have to comment on this. I see this point being made a lot by US people. You make it sound like there was some big operation to make everyone in Britain surrender their guns - no one had any guns to surrender. trust me, no one here was ever owning a gun for 'protection'. A family did not have a gun in the drawer just in case of burglars. There has never been any protest in the streets of England with people chanting "Give us our guns back".

People over here who do have guns are the ones who would invariably keep them whether or not the government said it was okay or not.

*Angered post*
What part of Weird News stories do you not understand? It's a weird news story FFS! Hatred


Oh, understand it perfectly.  This is not news at all...weird or otherwise.  People can choose to allow porn into their homes or not...stop the presses.

I miss the days when a movie forum was used to discuss...movies.
Really, Ulthar?  You're going to do it again?  Why don't you just stay away and look at the myriad movie discussion threads on this "movie forum"  that could use your brains, insight, and good (but not great) writing?  This is not only the off-topic part of the forum, but also weird news stories.  You did the same before when I posted a stupid story in the weird news forum months ago.  Lighten up.  Or, for that matter, consider that you are old enough to be Bull's father.  Though frankly, you act like you could be his precocious little brat.
