Censorship UK – Cameron’s Porn filter is a bit more than advertised.

Laurie Penny writing for the Guardian, has a piece about the censorship filter being deployed in the UK. In principle I have no problem with people monitoring what comes into the home. Providing it is their home. But blocking at the source, and allowing the state to filter under vague definitions of “obscenity” or “tasteless material” then you run the risk of allowing some very distasteful behaviour into your home unseen.

Penny highlights some of the “features” of the Cameron Porn Filter at the link below.
