    Only one of the 11 or so parents that I know sees any need for stricter measures and after you explain that such features are already available then they usually agree. But the poll itself is focused on ISP responsibility because this is ISPreview.co.uk and that's the governments focus. In any case you could perhaps infer the answer to your proposed question by whatever outcome we end up for the imposed web blocks question .

    Id add should homes with parents that are not willing to supervise their child in any activity (be it the internet, crossing the road etc) where a child needs to be supervised even be allowed things like the internet or even DIGITAL TV in the first place.

    The fuss our government and P.C. mob are making as normal is braindead anyway.

    The government already fund a form of pornography and allow children to watch it freely in more homes than what even have the internet.

    Its called freeview TV and a bunch of channels that come on late in the evening with some minger bouncing her bits about on screen.

    So lets all say thanks to the UK government for polluting the screens and little billys eyes with that and the billions they spent to bring it to us in their wonderful digital switch over scheme.

    God forbid any little billy watching boobs bouncing on the internet though

    It’s hard to know where to start picking holes in the 89-page report of the Independent Parliamentary Inquiry into Online Child Protection (PDF), which heartily recommends that ISPs should censor internet content by default. It has more of them than a golf course.

    You could for example question the credentials of The Sun’s agony aunt, “Dear Deidre” Sanders as the Inquiry’s first expert witness. She thinks children should be protected from online pornography, but she’s OK with children looking at Page 3 girls because “the Editor of The Sun thinks it’s okay” and because “nine million people read it”. I’ve got news for you, Deidre: there’s a few more people on the internet.

    There are more than enough tools available as it is, parents should know how to use them and protect their own children.

    At the end of the day filtering even at ISP level will never block adult content as the unscrupulous web site operators just change domain name and come back week after week.

    I have hosts files and OpenDNS to control what my lad sees but there will always be new unclassified domains arriving every day. The big problem is the "parents" that just use a PC/TV/Console to keep their offspring out of their hair.

    Parents are responsible not isp's for censoring what their offspring see or don't see , that's IMO where it has gone wrong, more and more parents are ready to blame someone else as blaming others is easier than do what they should be doing parenting their kids, not leaving them sat at a computer with Internet access for hours every day, unsupervised , and Internet access isn't a right of any child,
    Personally i think that they would be far healthier if they where out playing after school not sat vegetating in front of a console or computer , just as they should be using public transport to and from school or a bicycle or walk even , not being ferried to and from by mummy in the gas guzzling 4x4 when their home is less than 20mins walk away , perhaps there should be a extra tax for making unnecessary journeys at peak times , clogging up the roads

    Its not the kids that are at harm or are the innocent that need protecting...... They will bypass any block within 20 seconds anyway.

    Its more like the idiot parents that will turn on the blocking, that are the ones that need help.

    Phone up the ISP on Monday morning pestering them that they cant access the lottery website to see if they won this week........ Not realising thats gambling.

    Little Billy who is being "protected" meanwhile on his way to school along with compulsory ipad some idiot schools insist pupils have (thanks again government with your kids must have a computing device blabber a year or so ago) will be leaping on wifi on the school bus Monday morning watching big boobies with his mates.

    Not the kids that are *cough* "damaged", the only ones that term applies to seems to be the brains (term used loosely) of parents and MPs that think blocking it at the odd connection "protects" children.

    Load of old waffle, in my day as a pimple nosed brat growing up i didnt even have to turn on a computer to look at porn.

    I just went to the news agent early in the morning, done my paper round and when finish like any brat approaching puberty spent 15 minutes oggling the top shelf of porn mags before jogging off to school.

    Cant say ive grown up "damaged" unless you count finding out for certain in my teen years not ever woman is a 40DD counts. Was initially a disappointment but one i soon got over. Maybe i should sue the government for the mental scaring it may have left another 20 odd years on.
