Literally easier to just download and use a VPN. Which everyone with a brain will do.

I’ve already started using one, something I never would have dreamed of in the past, just to read many news websites which are blocked because of GDPR.

Well there's nothing better than forcing everyone to be 100% verifiably and inextricably linked to their online persona by their actual identity thereby making them even more of a target for hackers and datamining/hoarding.

Have you seen how angry everyone is at the moment? Just think how much worse it's going to be when everyone is hungry, sick or has blue balls. No more wanking the problems away.

Top shelf magazine sales may see a rise in their sales following this, so there's some bonus I suppose?

All sensible people have obviously curated their own personal collection of offline grot to see them through issues like this of course? :shifty:

Not only do people have to stockpile food, but they also have to stockpile filth. What a country.

This is what taking back control meant.

Meanwhile in America...

State Lawmakers in Arizona are weighing a measure to declare pornography a public health crisis.

Introduced by Republican Rep. Michelle Udall, the measure says pornography "perpetuates a sexually toxic environment that damages all areas of our society," AZ Central reported.

"Like the tobacco industry, the pornography industry has created a public health crisis," Udall reportedly told lawmakers. "Pornography is used pervasively, even by minors."

House Concurrent Resolution 2009 says children's easy access to online porn contributes to "low self-esteem, eating disorders and an increase in problematic sexual activity at ever-younger ages."

The proposal, which passed through the state's House Committee on Health & Human Services, has no legal implications but, if passed, could set a precedent for future pornography regulation policy.

If passed into law, the measure would make Arizona the 12th state to pass a resolution on pornography as a public health crisis.

I have never had porn stored on any PC I've ever owned.

It's going to be either pay for a VPN or having 'imagination wanks' from April onwards.

That's untrue, of course it's stored, even if it's temporary files that never actually gets deleted because of how file systems work.

But I know what you mean.
