    They are not the ones with the problem, so why should do have to do anything about it?

    This would be its own separate topic, but, I'll submit the idea for perusal. People who work in factories producing DVD/Blu-Ray content, retail stores, and fast food are treated like crap and can have very hellish conditions to deal with on a daily basis. Yet, nobody's going to refrain from making use of one or more of those services just because the workers can (and do quite often) get treated like dirt.

    Yeah it is just that simple if they kept it like how they describe it in the article you linked.

    There should be a way to downrate petitions.
    People should be able to vote against and downvoted petitions should not go through.

    If this ever becomes a thing (I doubt it will) I will just opt in and continue jerking it. I work in IT, I see what people on computers do. Everyone looks at porn. Everyone. Even your neighbourhood pastor. Why is it a source of shame? Guess what, I bet the pastor also jerks it.

    Somebody needs to broadcast some kind of global seminar for old people on what the internet is and how it works. They need to pick their battles - this isn't Hustler selling magazines in stores - it's not one company and it can't be stopped at the distribution chain. If they want to hunt down kiddy porn, good - find it - find those involved - arrest them all: everyone is on the same page (well, except pedophiles, but their vote is void).

    If music companies have a problem with free distribution of their product - sure, valid problem. What music companies need to recognize though is that the internet is an infinitely better distribution channel than the ancient store-based model they are using. They are trying to sneaker-pimp an electronic product, and ignoring the electronic distribution channel - which is absolutely insane. They have nobody to blame but themselves. It would be like if the only way anybody could eat at a restaurant, is by ordering restaurant food online - and there was no physical restaurants in existence: a physical product only being sold through an electronic medium. Ditto for the film industry obviously

    You can't fight porn on the internet, you may as well declare war on something overwhelming like water on Earth's surface - or something ephemeral like "terror" (lol sorry, had to do it) - or something both overwhelming and ephemeral... like porn on the internet.

    I am sure ISP will have an online tick box if you don't wanna phone them, just like most ISP you can access and amend your account online.

    I am thinking it should be as simple as Account Setting > Preference > Porn On/Off

    This is getting more and more pages fast...

    Honestly, banning porn? It doesn't hurt anybody! Also, I have never ever accidentally stumbled upon a porn site in my life while browsing the web. I assume you don't have to look well for it to find it (not sure though, never did it. Really, why don't you believe me!?), but you won't find it accidentally. So, the protecting children argument is bullshit. Also, I for one wouldn't care if my hubby wanted to watch porn.

    But maybe this is just me, and the public opinion is different?

    This is exactly my point. This petition is leading people to believe that all they need to do is sign up for it and they'll never have to worry about it again. It's not as simple as just checking a box and boom no more porn.

    As long as it is on by default. To much effort to turn to it on.

    You have to wrench porn out of my shrivelled up, sticky right hand before you can take it from me. My wife doesn't mind me wanking off to it, my kids don't know that I'm doing it.

    If they make porn illegal in Europe I'm afraid America will once again regain its status as #1. Sorry

    Made me laugh.

    Why do people make such a problem of those things, though? That person is probably going to get called by people that want to opt-in more often than just once.
