Porn blocked in UK

Have you guys seen this news? Starting in April 2018, all porn sites will be blocked in the UK by default. To unlock access to them, you have to provide proof you are of legal age, and you will do so by entering your credit card details, just like a gambling site.

That’s right.

Free porn, paid porn, doesn’t matter. If you want to watch pornhub or any other porn site, you will need to first identify yourself via credit card number.

The law affects sites that do porn “commercially.” About the law:

The creation of the law was justified by stats compiled by the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC)…

…(the law) could prevent the ‘stumbled upon’ factor, where young children that have no intention of accessing pornography inadvertently do.

The classic “won’t someone think of the children!” tactic. Let’s block porn for every single adult because a relatively small % of parents are irresponsible and let their kids browse the internet without supervision.

Besides, I bet the #1 source of accidental porn discovery are sites like twitter, tumblr, etc., and they won’t be included in this block.

What is the UK’s end game here? Anytime someone pulls a “think of the children” card, there’s almost always ulterior motive.

Maybe the MPs got caught watching porn, and this is their way of furthering the taboo in order to get turned on, like racists do.
