    Cougar have you a link to the other thread

    I suppose. They’re saying this measure is to reduce the availability of child ‘porn’ on the web, but the fact of the matter is that it won’t make a fig of difference to the availability of such materia

    I’d say that if the current censorship has driven child porn off the WWW to peer sharing that’s a good thing

    Just read Camerons speech. I’m no Cameron fan but I’d say this mainly makes sense

    Well, you’re assuming a causal link. But even if that’s true, what’s changed? The problem hasn’t gone away, just moved somewhere else.

    It’s worth bearing in mind too that search engine self-censorship and all other things aside, we already have child abuse Internet filters in place in the UK, we have had for about ten years now.

    Sir Elton John owns an arty photograph that closed a gallery when displayed because it was deemed ‘child pornography’. However, the Police have now said that is isn’t,

    And if a team of legals can’t agree, what hope do we have of reliably programming a computer to tell the difference?

    Oh right I couldn’t deal with that thread as the title was incorrect

    Would amazon get more sales if it was forced off the www and didn’t turn up in google searches? Exactly, stopping things is almost impossible, making them harder to access means they get used less

    I’m assuming that no one is asking a computer to spot porn. They are hoping to come up with a list of band searches

    I agree that we already doing the most important things already. The new stuff is mainly something for Cameroon to talk about so that we don’t notice the major problems

    Including the bit where he says CEOP needs more powers? When actually what CEOPS needs is less cuts (10% over the last 3 years, in a time when the Tories are pretending to be stamping down on obscene images of kids) and more staff (when again, staff levels have fallen in the last couple of years- despite claims to the contrary *)

    Yeah, makes sense to me too, more powers will fix all that.

    (* just to jump ahead one step- the govt claims that staffing levels have increased by 50%. Former head of CEOP says that the old figure is misleading and doesn’t include a large number of seconded staff- and that effective staffing has actually fallen since 2008.)

    What would make more sense is to deal with the 2 issues separately rather than let the get blended together and let the media describe the policy.
