UK Porn Filtering

I'm calling right now, this will be a fucking disaster. Total, complete fucking shambles. An on-by-default system run by your ISP at the behest of a government nobody voted for; yeah, hard to see how that could cause problems.

All these hair brained schemes, dreamt up by people in power, simply serve to underscore what I've been saying for some time now; these people are hopelessly and completely out of touch will reality and in this demonstrate a total lack of understanding of the problem on a fundamental level. To put it more succinctly, we have politicians in place who are being asked to solve problems that they simply do not understand.

This is the equivalent of replacing CERN's Brian Cox with a chimp and expecting detailed analysis of the Higgs Boson, then showing surprise that the Hadron Collider is covered in banana peel and shit.

Remember when the Pirate Bay was blocked in the UK? The original work around using VPN's or proxies and magnet links took no more than 5 minutes to work out and about 2 minutes to use correctly and that was before the Pirate Bay setup the reverse proxies.

Our war against terror is a farce, our war against drugs is a total shambles and now they want to enter into a struggle against porn. On the internet. Jesus. Fucking. Christ. On a website.
