Isn't there such a thing as Reddit gold? They'll just require card details for that, job done.

The government have already said they going to look at sites that arn't mostly porn later to tighten on the rules so it'll work for a bit.

Although the internet in the UK might collapse with all the rioting.

That explains why so many are still hell bent on Brexit - can't ban our porn if society collapses can they?

Oddly enough I've never actually considered Usenet as a source of porn.

Thinking back to the days of being a horny late teen looking for porn on limewire it's probably not the most reliable means of obtaining it.

Sometimes you just have to work with what you can find.

Opera is owned by a Chinese consortium now, I wouldn’t trust them in the slightest.

That's a fair point. I'm going to look into it a bit further.

No just trust them for the bit of browsing that avoids a uk law. If anything that’s worse.

If someone's going to know, I'd much rather some random Chinese company with no direct power over me knows I visited PornHub than the UK government.

My worry would be people working in security sensitive roles. You get asked about porn habits when getting clearance because of the potential for blackmail. If the state doesn't know about them so grants you clearance but a Chinese company does, that's potentially dangerous.

Witty biological-political hybrid jokes are the reason this place fails to cater to a wide audience

Fair point, that would be a worry for people in that position.
