it annoys me that they can keep beating a dead horse but once it's in effect probably due to some idiotic voting, it'll probably take ages before it will go away again, if it even goes away.

You guys have nothing to complain about, the U.K is getting China-style censorship.

How would you define "esoteric material".

You don't have to install the filters? So what the big deal?

The very site you linked to says it would be optional filters that merely default to "on". That's not censorship at all, much less iron-handed communist censorship. The motives are rather underhanded but the means aren't over the top.

I don't see the problem? Only the ones who break the law are the ones crying about this.

You must not be familiar with SOPA. You're just like the old farts that are pushing it through because it will "protect jobs" when in reality they don't understand what it really means.

The other side of the coin would be everyone who got their information about SOPA from Reddit and protested because it would "censor the internet," who also in reality had no idea what it actually does.
