What is meant by a default block, do you have to manually authorise access? Because then it isn't really a issue when you give consent, but privacy matters.

How about the people that actually want the block just get a app or something that blocks porn. Especially parents with kids.

So this is how they are going to start to censor the internet, under the guise of saving the kiddies from the pr0n, but we actively encourage under age kids to make babies by giving them child support grants.

This is how repressive laws always start - with something that seems reasonable, noble and good, but opens the door to a host of other repressive laws.

The other common manipulation is fear - put up cameras at every corner, introduce the Patriot Act, spy on and keep records of all citizens, permit police / state to use facial recognition to track and trace people, etc etc etc the list of laws that have eroded human rights and freedoms in the last few years is worrying when you look at them in their entirety. We appear to be at the start of a world wide totalitarianism that is very worrying.

This doesn't sound feasible at all. The idea behind it is nice and all, but that implementation will 100% not work out.

Sorry, but are you saying that censoring is nice, and that you are supporting the idea that government can tell us what we are allowed to see and not to see?
