I've been reading about the new law that's coming in soon re internet porn. Apparently porn sites will have to have mandatory credit card checks for viewers to prove they are over 18, and apparently ISPs will be be ordered by the government to block porn websites that don't comply with this.
Since there are squillions of porn sites and given the majority are based outside of the UK and probably won't be interested in entertaining the UK government, does this mean talktalk are going to end up blocking tens of thousands of legitimate porn sites?
If talktalk do end up blocking a large part of the internet, shouldn't talktalk customers who pay for broadband get a discount? I mean, if what what we can access is going to be reduced by x% then it would seem fair to cut our fees by x%, right?

Just use a proxy server there are a number of websites providing access to free proxy servers that gets arround the "blocked website" problem.
Free proxy servers are never really 'free' are they - I've read somewhere that 'the powers that be' can still get access to their IP address logs, which apparently can't happen with a reputable, paid for proxy server.

why was this moved to hobbies and interests when it is clearly about talktalk broadband?
A valid question - is someone being judgemental as to what they assume one of your hobbies might be?

As for a discount. Hey yes! You get all the Internet access that the Government allows and you pay full price. And if the content you want to watch takes up 30% of network traffic then those that don't want the choice of your type of content get a 30% reduction in fees. It's only fair, right?
