Internet & Networking "BT, Sky, TalkTalk and Virgin will be asked to offer customers the option to block adult content during subscription According to new measures to be announced by Prime Minister David Cameron, online pornography watchers will have to place a special request with their Internet Service providers (ISPs) to watch pornographic or sexualised content online. The prime minister is holding a summit at No.10 today with 30 media and retail executives, including broadcasters, magazine editors, trade bodies and advertisers, said the Daily Mail. Cameron is expected to announce the crackdown after Mothers Union charity chief executive Reg Bailey submitted a report on the matter after six months of study." The fact that this can happen in Great Britain just goes to show how brittle concepts like freedom of speech really are. Where people in the Arab world fight for the kinds of freedom we have, we in the west just hand them over to extremists. Un-frakking-believable. Any British folk in here? How on earth did you guys let this happen?

The proxy logs probably wouldn't tell you much unless you can map ip-addesses to subscribers. The telephone bills are interesting, though. Seriously, why aren't they leaked? Any ideas?

Mapping ip-addresses to subscribers is exactly what happens when people are taken to court for bittorrent copyright infringement allegations via file sharing.

Chances are if someone is to leak the logs, they'll also have leaked the information that matches them to the subscriber... or they'll gointo the subscribers account and retreive the logs for that account and leak those logs.


Whatever happens, its not very nice for anyone involved. Even more so if their machine becomes infected and they get nasty popups for a few days until they get it in the shop to be cleared...
