People Realise Porn Filters Don't Work All The Time

19 December 2013

BBC News:

Among the sites TalkTalk blocked as “pornographic” was BishUK.com, an award-winning British sex education site, which receives more than a million visits each year.

TalkTalk also lists Edinburgh Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre website as “pornographic.”

The company also blocked a programme ran by sex education experts, taught to 81,000 American children that has been in development for more than 20 years.

TalkTalk’s filter is endorsed by Mr Cameron but it failed to block 7% of the 68 pornographic websites tested by Newsnight.

What do you know! A porn filter is experiencing false positives and negatives … no one could have predicted that.
