No, but we apparently brought one back from the Moon (and he lives in Iceland now).

How much you want to bet Ogmundur Jonasson is a major pedophile or something close to that?

Most of these guys pushing hard for "morality" are usually caught with prostitutes, kiddy porn, etc.

good luck chuck

And I thought an old skool book burning event was passe. But guess what, it's now digital book burning, and they are flying around the world like those little green monsters in Ghostbusters. Don't cross the stream.

I guess they never got the memo on how China's Great Wall (say an economy 100 of times bigger) can't effectively keep information out.

BTW my calculator has more processing power than the computers that sent a man to the moon (and yes Iceland was still fishing back in those days--not sending a man to the moon), and I guarantee after the "meltdown" of Iceland's economy they won't have the cash to even scratch the surface of this and my $40 RPN calculator isn't going to cut it.

This will simply make bitcoin the default porn currency even faster L)

Just try to keep a guy a week from wanking it, and you will see violence...

When will these governments learn?

Let freedom ring?

Guess they dont bother with little things like personal freedoms in Iceland. Maybe they will toss as much money down that Austrailia did. Then we can have two countries to point and laugh at while trying to filter the internet.

Never. Its all about control. All those socialist governments in Europe just drool on micormanaging their people. Its like crack to them. Little people that get their rocks off "helping" others by forcing them to do things. Too bad its going that direction here too...

So frigid temps and the expect you to look porn on shops? LO

I have a feeling the Icelandic gov wants to put internet porn out and let you buy it like the old day. stop by a shop by the DVD and go home. Since we all know in Iceland during fishing season women in port cities will ask single guys out to dance and if you do your job well use you for the night .

Impossible

It's impossible to ban porn off the internet. One particularly regligious and conservative friend told me on time that he thought porn should be banned, and of course I had to explain to him that we have something called free speech and the first amendment here in the US, but anywhere in the world, at a practical level, it would be impossible. Even if you blocked known porn sites, you'd be in a never ending game of whackamole. And then there's VPN, Bittorrent, FTP, Usenet, should I keep going?

Re: "Violent" pornography?

I recall a conversation I had with a co-worker years ago. because of her religious beliefs, any nudity was sexual in nature.
IE bathing, showering, changing clothes, it was all sexual. She said that we need to keep covered at all times, unless you seek to cause another person to have immoral thoughts.

Good to see the USA doesn't own the market on that way of thinking.

If they block porn they might as well block people from having sex as well and let the problem solve itself in the next 80 years.

Re: Prudes

Icelanders aren't prudish (similar to the Scandinavian countries, if they are covered, it's because they are cold, not shy), just very socially "progressive".

In China that's what they basically do »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One-child_policy, and that's called population control to some nations also.

Re: "Violent" pornography?

This isn't about blocking transmission, it's about blocking payment, the idea being if you take the money out of it, the supply will dry up.
High moral ground, even if not really practical on a country by country basis

I don't watch porn

I am against porn and I find porn offensive. Enough said...

I personally think there should be a requirement that porn sites have coding to trip filtering software installed on computers and networks. Current filtering software only blocks porn sites registered with the filtering software vendor but if they required porn sites to have coding inserted by the the porn site host, then the software would be automatic and not need the database to block such sites. If I had kids, I would like to filter their Internet.

Also, with the filtering software, wholesome websites have been blocked and the coding of porn sites by hosts would eliminate that problem.

Iceland IS a "well regulated" and physically isolated country.
Well regulated in that THEY will look and you will PAY a heavy fine for your anti-social behavior, you could end up banned from the internet and with no money for booze (Icelandic national food of choice) hard to last through a long dark winter like that.

Too funny ... and sad

What about the Frederick's of Hollywood catalog?

Politicians all over the world are so f^%$n stupid and incompetent it is truly embarrassing for them. They just don't get it.

Teach your kids, manners and independent and intelligent thinking and they will learn why shouldn't watch violent porn on the internet. Please leave the internet alone.

And I mean the parents, not the teachers in the schools. It is the parents responsibility.

If you had kids you should be more worried about real internet threats than pics/vids of titties.

Maybe they could have (consensual) sex with each other, rather than fantasy sex alone. you should try it.
