So after 2 postponements the UK’s new internet porn blocking law has been dropped. Preventing children from viewing porn may be a good idea but this law looked half-arsed with no one knowing how it was going to work in the real world. None of the age verification systems being touted looked foolproof and with most kids being the more computer savvy they would have had little trouble bypassing them leaving them free to view whatever they liked while dirty old men like me would be locked out.
