BT,Sky and TalkTalk network level porn filter

Well UK’s 3 largest ISPs decided to go with David Cameron and Claire Perry’s advice on blocking porn on the internet by default. Excuse they gave was to parents with young children don’t know how to set this up so we get the ISPs to do it for every one. I’m sure China would have used similar wording to censer the internet on their citizens too.

David Cameron and Claire Perry is not the smartest bunch when you come to technology. I can add daily mail editors to that list too. they assume most parents are dumb as them.

Trouble is this kind a filters don’t work. any one can easily get around it. Kids now days with internet forums twitter etc easily get help. already many good news website published how to do this.

At home I use opendns to block most of the site I think not suitable for my home. I set it up a way only allow opendns ips to access the port 53. so any one try to trick the system by changing DNS server on the local computer will not work. This is not a best way but works. This is not that difficult to set it up though just use a search engine to search for your router model and opendns server to block porn.

Out of all papers Sun which has page 3 and dailymail which regularly publish some trashy news/pictures campaigned for it.they must have thought reading their trashy papers will make child a better citizens ?
