How to Get Round Dave’s Porn Block

Porn blocking has claimed its first victims: stopping users from reaching the deep dark parts of the internet like the Lib Dem LGBT website and Guido, among others. TalkTalk and BT are now getting it in the neck for blocking rape crisis centres and gay lifestyle sites. Who could possibly have predicted the filters wouldn’t work.

Fortunately there is a solution. GoAwayCameron.co.uk lets you install an extension on your Chrome browser so you are free to access blocked sites. Which basically means 15 year olds don’t have to tell their mum they want to access porn after all. Politicians not understanding the internet, who would have thought it.

Meantime until everyone installs porn blocker hacks it would be much appreciated if the boffins at T-Mobile could remove http://www.Order-Order.com from their porn blacklist. Guido doesn’t want to have to sue them for loss of earnings…

    There are 2 types of people in the world: those who admit to watching porn, and those who are liars.

    Is Guido really a porn website? I never realised, and certainly couldn’t see myself getting off on it. No offence intended …

    You can also use a proxy, like https://hidemyass.com .

        Why is the porn filter still permitting Claire Perry to appear on my monitor? Does it not filter descriptions like ‘bitch’?

        Ex-Tory Voter says:

        That’s because it is censorship. Whether customers have a choice or not someone in a position of power is deciding what they can and cannot see by criteria which is ambiguous at best, secretive at worst.

        You bullied the ISPs into this on behalf of brainless Cameron, Nanny Government Mk.II and a hysterical minority of weenies so that the rational, adult majority have to jump through your censorship hoops because some parents are incapable of supervising their brats properly.

        Censorship, Perry, censorship and it is you, a supposed member of a supposed conservative party, who is responsible for this state meddling. You should be in the Labour party which is clearly your spiritual home. This voter, who in forty years has always voted conservative, won’t be voting for your party ever again.

      What we actually need is a filter to stop all the red-tape from Brussels. Every MP should be fitted with a legislation filter.

    Australia tried to filter naked Shielas and Bruces from their ‘net but it turned out to be an abject failure…Cameron could have saved him self looking an even bigger twat, if he taken the touble to listen to anyone with a modicum of IT knowledge. But no, you had to keep those knees jerking and now look ——-> GoAwayCameron indeed, HaHaHaHaHa. Why not be more ambitious and go for TossOffCnutFace next time?

      You could set up TossOffCnutFace yourself and re-direct it to GoAwayCameron.

      Don’t wait for someone else to do it.

      Why do you not just put up a notice:

      “Warning: A picture of a nude woman is just in front of you. If you are Muslim please do not proceed forward; if you have to proceed forward then please close your eyes to avoid any offence being caused.”

      “The Internet has a capital I.”

      I’m not sure whether that’s boringly pedantic or deeply philosophical. The way things like Farcebook and Twatter let nonentities masturbate their egos in public 24×7 suggests the internet doesn’t just have a capital I but a 144 point illuminated one.

      The Court Usher says:

      He wouldn’t get away with that in my court. The correct and serious response to a court is a sign of respect to the wider legal system. His attitude is that of a ‘youth offender’ from some deprived shit-hole not a member of Her Majesty’s Legislature and therefore someone who should have some understanding of his role and his shame in bringing the system into disrespect. Total c_nt I hope he gets sent down for at least 12 months.

    Nanny statism goes awry.

    This sort of thing is the thin edge of a very big wedge which can and no doubt will be used to control access to information and restrict bodies that an ungrateful government doesn’t like.

    Presumably the Islamic terror sites are totally unaffected…….

      Winston says:

      Quite right. Guido jokes, but this is the beginning of our State (and therefore, the EU, the UN) and their corporate cronies attack on the freedom of the internet. Already, the EU, in true socialist corporatism style, is trying to undermine the success of the likes of airbnb.com, by forcing Govts to restrict private rentals of apartments.

      Stop voting LibLabCon or it will get worse.

        They can track a single person through Tor only by dedicating a vast amount of resources to it.

        If you’re doing something to warrant that amount of attention then you’ve probably got bigger things to worry about.

    FFS don’t use that so called “Go Away Cameron”
    This is just one of the reviews:

    “This extension is a scam.

    It’s 100% a clone of “Go away MDA”. The website and the extension is a 1:1 copy. This version doesn’t even have code based on anything to do with the UK and is still all aimed at Singapore ISP’s and users.

    Anyone who can read Javascript can check this out themselves by reading the scripts in the extension folder. It’s a scam and people should spread the word fast before he scams more people out of upgrading for something that doesn’t work, and will never work for the UK because it is programmatically impossible for it to do so in its current state.

    Even the domain name for the website is registered to the Singapore idiot behind the scam.”

      Anonymous says:

      It does not need to be programmed specifically for the UK in any way shape or form.

      The program is a smart proxy. It automatically selects a proxy server to allow data to be routed through to bypass you internet providers server. It does not matter what proxy it uses as long as it is one with a decent amount of bandwidth available.

      There’s no reason to call this a scam, it is simply presenting an existing program to a different market. The website is misleading but the functionality of the program is exactly as stated.

    Talking about porn, and people who like it:

    In After The Party, a collection of reminisces published in 2011 to mark the twentieth anniversary of the dissolution of the Communist Party of Great Britain, Andrew Pearmain writes:

    “I started sleeping with other women on my trips to London, other Communist students and even a Tory member of the NUS Executive whose taste for rough sex really shocked me; she later joined the SDP.”

    He was referring to Anna Soubry.

    If you are a drama queen you could activate the filters, throw a massive wobbly then install an addon to bypass the filters you decided to use.

    Or you could not bother to activate the filters (Opt in for existing customers/opt out for new customers) and carry on as normal.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
