Filters on by default for all customers.

I'm all for it, and if/when the filters get it wrong, I will deal with that appropriately.

The internet should not be censored in anyway what so ever, regardless of the intended blocked content.

Sigh. I'd love to vote these nubskulls out of office but alas, it seems like 90%+ of politicians are amongst the least tech literate animals on earth, including of course, single celled protozoa.

If we paid political offices only a stipend and insisted that people in the relevant office had experience with that area (education only staffed by people who have 10+ years as an educator, economics staffed by people who haven't learned all their money smarts from a 30 second glance through the FT, etc) we'd have far fewer of these stupid as *badword* policies getting through the gate.

How will you deal with it? There is no built in mechanism to appeal the filtering of a particular website. This is why this is such a dangerous path ISPs have begun down.

By screaming at the government probably about why he can't get on his Cucumber Coveter Club website because someone who was running it two years ago went to school with someone wrongly accused of commenting on a Ukraine for Russia youtube video one time.

Any word on whether Plusnet users are part of this as well? I find it funny how they're essentially part of the same company, but BT has torrent site blocks but Plusnet doesn't.

Sadly there is a planned mechanism to deal with mistakes, you either contact your ISP or take the ISP to court in the case of financial harm. Obviously these cost will be passed on to their customers.

You cant escape the great firewall of Cameron, all but one UK ISP have committed to filtering content, and if you think your safe in other country's you're not as all major search engines have been nudged by Cameron into blocking 100,000 search terms and issuing warnings on a further 13,000.

In a local coffee shop, I use their WIFI, they use Open DNS and for some reason it blocks Bit-Tech.

and rightly so with all this talk of pr0n.

I'm against all this filtering. Freedom of Speech or something...


I saw a great quote the other month about how a Government should be in fear of the people, not the people in fear of the Government. Still May 2015 and there is another election.

Don't worry. As soon as ISPs are starting to lose customers over this, filters will start to become remarkably limited in what they actually filter. It's good family service PR to have one, but it doesn't have to actually do anything.

I'd hazard a guess that porn is only the first step in the plan seeing as parents can already get software to prevent kids accessing adult content, there is no need for this at all. s1n1s summed it up perfectly (3rd comment down)

BT is right. Why should we let a bunch of mps that know nothing about the internet and computers meddling in these matters. And we all know about Claire Perry, for she did nothing to reaffirm her understanding of the internet. It is a slippery slope.
