UK Porn Filter Causes Problems Again

Famous Cameron’s effort to keep the little British away from the evil Internet keeps failing on many different levels. This time online filter (which meant to detect pornography and adult content) inadvertently blocked a game update because the latter contained letters “s-e-x” standing together.

cameron-credit-no10-578-80.jpg

A popular strategy game “The League of Legends” was mistakenly blocked by British Internet filter because its update unintentionally included the letters “s-e-x” standing together in its web address. In result, the update failed on many machines with “file not found” error. Such errors are normally created by missing files or broken updates on the part of the developers. The issue was first mentioned on social news website Reddit: it explained that files named VarusExpirationTimer.luaobj and XerathMageChainsExtended.luaobj triggered a block at the ISP level.

Anyway, the porn filter, which already seems to cause more trouble than it is worth, has been rendered useless as users prefer to just opt out of it. According to the local media, few people use the filters: only those who have ordered a new service since the legislation was enforced, and who said “yes” to filtering when they signed up. Overwhelming majority refused to do so.

Crash1 avatarI wonder how the shire council in the shire of Essex got around this issue, or the 2 Universities, or anything ELSE with the shire name in the file-name or URL address? I wonder if the whole shire has been filtered out of existence for UK residents? Let's face it ... if there's a way around the filter for THOSE institutions, there's a way around them for EVERYBODY (at least in the current configuration.)

Most people with an unwanted filter would just use a proxy or VPN connection anyway

TrojanMouse avatar@Crash1,

Don't forget to mention Sussex, Wessex and of course, Scunthorpe!

I'm sure they've had a problem or two...

EX_PAT avatarAnd of course Cameron has never even glimpsed upon an inch of any sort of pyrography in his entire life, never even seen a remotely soft porn video or played with a deck of dirty cards. However as porn accounts for much of the UK's online traffic it may actually have improved internet speeds. Glass half full thinking in full effect.

No avatarits getting ridiculous having to pay for internet and then pay for VPN subscriptions on top of that just so you can get what ISP s should be providing you with anyway admittedly it s worth paying the extra few quid a month to be able to use sites like hulu and download torrents safely but the nanny state is getting worse for interfering in our lives when will it stop?

Woolie avatarSo ISP's actually have to ask first now to filter traffic??? And if you say no then it should be unfiltered (and unmonitored).

So actually Cameron's the good guy, as you now have a choice instead of the ISP making the decision as to what's good for you...

It does mean the whole world is again open on the internet for information, doesn't it!

No avatarLook at Cameron's twat of a face. Just look at it. That is the face of a man who is addicted to pornography, but hates himself for his dirty little secret and wants everyone else to hate themselves for looking at pornography. He wants us to go back to the good old days of when your first glimpse of a vagina in a sexual context was in a discarded, rain-soaked copy of Penthouse poking out of a bush on the way home from school.

He really is doing his best to take us back to Thatcher's Britain, isn't he?

"Overwhelming majority refused to [signed up to online filtering]"

Oh, no, Cameron is out of touch with the citizens of the UK? He'll have to find a way of securing those votes by U-turning and saying that, actually, he completely endorses full access to online porn, gambling, self-harm, fashion and all those other things we don't want to be automatically protected from!

nuttytechy avatarCameron's porn filter is alot of Bullshit anyway.

Give a kid a computer and let him loose on it. I can probably guarantee that he will find a way to hack the porn filter anyway.

I dont know if its me but if you take something away and someone will want it more but keep it in front of them they wont be as bothered as much.

No avatarIn the States, there are many locations with free Wifi that automatically filter content without the user's consent or ability to opt out. There is other content aside from porn that I access that I cannot when trying to go through these filters. Thanks to the Tor Project for workarounds to these problems.

sn3h1t87 avatarIt's also blocking access to a load of "Sexual Education" websites and also websites which provide help and support for those who are Transgender.

Along with it possibly being used to block out certain websites of the oppositions opponents and gambling.

David Cameron was desperately waiting for some kids to die by someone who watched porn, so he could force this shit through. I hope, unlike Thatcher who went quietly in the night he dies in screaming agony.
