    They aren't. This only applies to dedicated porn sites/providers. Though good question if google are getting the images from such sites.

    It also doesn't apply to porn sites that don't make money strangely

    They're also not governed by the laws of common decency and forum guidelines, else I'd have used that to make some particularly cruel (but keen) jokes at the expense of certain posters in this thread!

    Most free porn sites are operating illegally anyway. Do you honestly think they give a damn about age verification checks? If blocked people will just use a VPN, well that is until the fascist Toris ban them too.

    1st country in the world to dream this up. Only country in the world to realise how stupid this is. Oh how stupid the UK is.

    Surely also this will be a gateway to stronger darkweb porn?

    Re: UK's pornography age checks come into force from 15th July

    I'm pretty sure this is a longer term plan to ban VPNs. They need a justification and so what they do is move certain types of porn into the illegal category (no one is going on the news arguing about their weird fetish porn being taken away) and then also put in a system like this under the guise of protecting kids. They know people will try and get past it with TOR and VPNs and then you can say "criminals are using software called VPNs to access illegal pornography and bypass child protections" which will be the first step in getting public backing for a ban on them. The ISP logging laws are already in place and logs are accessible by everyone, including if I remember rightly, the food standards agency....

    Not me, I don't use anti virus so never visit any dodgy sites as part of risk mitigation. Some might say that's stupid but so far I've not had a single virus by taking such precautions and I always used to have issues with AV software no matter what I used. All I do is occasionally run an online free scanner.

    IDK who the Toris are () but internet censorship in the UK is a bipartisan thing, both main parties fully support pornography age checks, Labour's support dates back to at least 2013, in fact it could be argued that the Conservatives adopted the idea from them.

    If there are people who go on Jeremy Kyle and openly admit to some of the things they claim, before then accusing their errant father of their child of even more vile things, then it's safe to say people who are only a little kinky need have no shame in protesting!!

    No problem - They do a variety of "hands-free" Bluetooth™-connected devices, which sync to the video and react accordingly. Makes for great general multitasking too, though it won't surprise you to learn that I've yet to get it working properly in Microsoft Flight Simulator...

    We used to have Jeremy Kyle playing in the waiting area at work. We got banned from showing anything other than the BBC news. Both a load of tripe, just one is respectable tripe and the other is the BBC news.

    Criminals using cars.... well, they actually banned cops from pursuing motorcyclists and scooters in London. What happened was that the lovely little dears got on bikes so they could get away without being chased. Pressure from the motorcycling community (who were sick of having bikes nicked for use in crime as well as being given a bad name) led to them knocking the little.....darlings off and trashing the bikes. Which didn't go down well with Dianne Abbott. She was promptly told to shut up and go back to learning to count.

    Food pr0n is just fine as long as you label allergens in bold.
