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".

OH, you mean act all normal and what not while out and about, and when you get home the barn animals come to play? Sorry, the term progressive has been tarnished with the whole "control" for our protection.. Even if they have to detain us indefinitely just to accomplish it...

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...

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.

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.

Re: "Violent" pornography?

There is a woman who shops at the local supermarket, They had to cover up the magazines in one checkout because she complained her kids might see them. Well she home schools.

I can only imagine that when those kids hit college they will either be in complete shock at the real world or their dorm room walls will be covered in centerfolds from Hustler as they try and catch up.

That's what happened to many of my high school classmates. They were so sheltered and brainwashed that once we graduated many of them became addicted to drugs or alcohol because they had been so sheltered.

I do not need a good looking person to be uncovered to have immoral thoughts though. That is why I find that argument from some people rather funny. Sure nudity and porn make things more fun, But the human mind can connect dots and find good looking people even under baggy clothing.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

do people support this?

I'd be curious what kind of support this has. Did they just elect a couple of crazy loons or is this the kind of thing a majority of the population would support? I didn't think iceland was like a muslim country with this kind of stuff but maybe i was wrong...
Of course, any tech savy person can probably get around something like this (vpn anyone?), but its still pretty ridiculous.

Re: do people support this?

Most women dislike porn taking away attention from them, and they are the largest voting block. Most men don't want to get on the wrong side of women. See, Prohibition.

Any measure promising to reduce "violence" also appeals to the collectivists. They have given in to helplessness and welcome government restrictions to protect them from freedom.

porn - the whole reason behind having a highspeed connection

I remember so many stats from back in the heyday of porn being a large percentage of overall bandwidth and the driving force behind better and better VOD streaming options... porn forces innovation , so banning porn will cause us to regress back to stone tools i would think

Winner of greatest level of futility award goes to....

I admit it, I'd rather my life had never had porn in it.

But I also wish I didn't eat as much chocolate too.

And I dislike my level of swearing as well.

The thing is, the reason I think most have a problem with porn is the real problem, not the porn itself.

Let's examine what porn really is. It's the visual depiction of sex.

It's just sex until you add religion.

I'd rather we banned religion. And made it so we didn't need porn. Because frankly, I'd rather be able to say gee I'd really like to get off right now, so do I go get a case of beer, or do I visit my favourite 'working girl' and let her give me a great blow job?

I'm fairly sure, if sex was something you could purchase with the same level of interest as a case of beer, sex would not cost as much, have no social stigma, and we wouldn't have porn.

And life would be so much better without religion.

Re: Winner of greatest level of futility award goes to....

Religion is a human reaction to answer the un-answerable. This goes back to pre-history times-say 7-10 thousand years ago. Humans back then didn't have the understanding of the ways of nature, hence the creation of "Gods" controlling their enviornment. "Who Mornes for Anodis" is THE classic Star Trek OG TV show that explains this rather well. You want to know who God is? Take a GOOD look in the mirror in the morning....and you'll have your answer.

That and religion tends to be fear focused, nothing like playing on people's fears of the unknown, and fear based to force obedience, nothing like threats of something really bad to make people behave.

I think the problem with sex, is it feels too good for one thing, but, the simple act of sex, in addition to being a lot of fun generally results in babies if done effectively, which when you look at it correctly is the creation of life, which is normally reserved for the gods, and thus, being able to do so, create life that is, tends to pull the curtain away from the wizard and expose him as a fraud.

Of course they need to have all sorts of dogma related to sex. Otherwise, people would tend to think they are too godlike having too much capacity to do anything god can do.

I didn't need god to be born, and I was not in need of god to have my son either. I don't need god to grow and apple. Nor do I require god to modify an animal.

And I merely need a brain that is willing to think long enough to solve problems in the now, that can be solved in the later. Some problems just take longer to solve than others. Just like some puzzles are easier than other.
