The UK government will begin blocking all adult websites in the United Kingdom as part of a strict new law seeking to protect children from pornography.
The new law, which comes into effect next month, will force people over the age of 18 who wish to view adult content to supply the British government proof of ID and spend £5 on a “porn card” at a local retailer.
Voiceofeurope.com reports: That means starting as soon as next month, in order to access porn sites like PornHub and YouPorn – which both attract almost two billion visits each month worldwide – Brits will be required to provide proof of ID prior to accessing any X-rated video clips.
These new regulations were approved as part of the 2017 Digital Economy Act.
These free sites will join a number of other internet porn sites which are already currently using what’s called the AgeID system. The AgeID system requires users to present an official form of identification like a passport or driver’s license in order to verify their age.
When a potential porn viewer first clicks onto the website, AgeID will ask them to register and verify their age via Mobile SMS, a driver’s license, passport, or credit card.
This is another reason internet users should be rushing to backup media they want/desire, downloading censorship-resistant software such as Tor and I2P, along with peer-to-peer and torrent clients. If the future of the internet is to remain free, internet users must take action to decentralize and share files over the darkweb, P2P and torrent networks.
Someone from 8chan noted: "I'm not promoting pornography, however I am promoting the freedom to CHOOSE whatever you desire to watch, even if it is looking at smut.
Here's a solution for all you Brits, now listen up:
Go here, download this client ASAP: https://www.tribler.org/
Don't just install this, back it up too and share that version of the client you have. You can find older versions being shared on other P2P clients too. With Tribler you can download or stream videos hosted by other peers, NO internet domains needed. However, the bad part is the selection may not be great. You will be limited to whatever other people are willing to share. I'd recommend getting whatever videos you'd like now, rip them using youtube-dl (which can rip videos from porn sites too if you desire). Use Tribler to share the banned content.
NOW LISTEN EVERYONE ELSE! I'm busy so I won't be on here very long, everyone else better be prepping for this in advance becuase this shit IS going down, NOT just in the UK but around the world. Internet crackdowns are REAL and they ARE coming to a nation near you!
You have been warned. Warn others. The time is NOW. Its do, or regret doing nothing later."https://archive.fo/gqXHlhttps://newspunch.com/uk-government-blocks-online-pornography/
