They're coming for your porn! What's next? This is scary.

Not just because it's porn, but it's freedom of information, and freedom for the people of the US and the UK.

The UK's new proposed law would BAN anything that isn't suitable for children.
http://www.news.com.au/breaking-news...-1225973481287

This is scary, because the US and the FCC are already starting to shut down websites left and right, laws to make the internet "child safe" are not to far away.

I was hoping for an intelligent conversation on the subject, which would mean the lack of Kodiak450r posts.

That seems to make a little more sense.

Internet. The last true free market, no government intervention success story we have left. How long will it last.

I read an article that 80 sites have already been shutdown to selling counterfeit brands because homeland security believes they are hurting american commerce.

Worried you're going to have to make GL4x4 a bit more Child safe?

Personally, The idea is kind of interesting. I'm not against making it harder for Children to to get into those kinds of sights though. Seriously. It's way to easy for anybody to do. I think there is something that needs to be done to restrict it. I don't think Banning it all together is that way though. I mean, At least before the internet you had to be creative.

I say leave it alone. If you don't want to see it, don't log on. If you don't want your kids to see it, monitor them or don't let them log on. Simple as that. Why do we need the government regulating something that you have to go out of your way to look at?

You don't really have to go out of your way to get to it though. I totally agree that parents should monitor thier kids but there is a point where it's just too easy.

And this is a free country....and should continue to be that way and hopefully work more towards that instead of this constant nanny state bullshit.

This is a webSITE.

One is called blind when he loses his SIGHT.

To gets an extra o when you want to go too or you have too much.

Yeah, and when I was a kid we would sneak a Penthouse out of the party store. Kids will find a way so why regulate the adults?

Then why are magazines like play boy kept behind the counter in most stores? It's a free country right? It's not a matter of Freedom, it's a matter of protecting children from things they shouldn't see at a young age. It's the same reason we have the age limits on Cigarettes, Alcohol, and pornography. The only problem is you can't accidentally click on a link and end up smoking a Cigarette or drinking a 5th of Jack.

The laws are already in place there is just no way to actually enforce them.

At least you had to be creative. It's the job of the adults to take care of the kids. If they can't manage to do that then they don't really deserve to not be regulated.
