There's occasional talk about legislation to clean the internet of adult material. I think that's rathera good idea. But also if that's to be done, perhaps everybody could be given free downloadable software to wipe their computers. Particularly useful if yo ever want to sell a computer again or pass it on to relative. It's difficult to know what family members have looked at, even unintentionally or what's got in the history via downloads.

Why are we tying ourselves in knots over this slimy issue? We need a w.w.mumsnet protest to Google to limit porn to an opt-in system with name addressand age compulsory +hefty subs.

Oh FFS does anyone with a brain really think this is workable? Even if it were, who would decide what adult content is? Mumsnet could be adult content, abortion advice, contraception advice, Michelangelo's David.
