why? for what purpose ?
protecting the children? ROFL
dont the children have parents?

no really, does freedom speech mean nothing to these people?

This goes a long way to explaining why so few porn sites have .is suffixes.

"We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard" --JFK

This must be the "other things" JFK was talking about.

When did Iceland send a man to the moon?

Or is she saying successfully blocking internet porn is as like as Iceland sending a man to the moon?
 
2014-06-24 01:14:00 PM
Okay, don't move to Iceland.

A member of the parliament committee, Jonsdottir says a porn ban has "near zero" chance of passing parliament

Meh, political grandstanding is the same the world over.

Iceland has the largest percentage of female politicians in the world.

TIL - Iceland sent a man to the moon.
 
2014-06-24 02:07:08 PM
Well, wait. Are they blocking it because the women aren't getting enough sexual attention?

Because I can move to Iceland.

I want to do my part.

The question remains "Is the world ready for Bjork pjorn?"

It'll be easy when everybody moves out of the country and you can just shut down all internet access entirely.

Have you ever seen Icelandic women? No thanks, Jeff

I do not agree with blocking content in general.

But for those of you who are breaking out in a cold sweat at the thought of NEVER AGAIN seeing any pornography.....congratulations, you're a porn addict.

I think it'd be easier to launch every politician in Iceland to the moon than block internet porn.
 
2014-06-24 02:57:15 PM
Oh, Iceland. "We" sent a man to the moon, Iceland? "We"?

Time to start a proxy server company and market it in Iceland.

Maybe they should ask the elves for help.

I wasn't aware that Iceland had a Lunar Landing Program. Then again with their name and geothermal features, the expression "Hell freezing over" does come to mind.

2014-06-24 03:24:10 PM

so what?  I am also a video game addict, a food addict (i have these horrible withdrawal symptoms if I go without food for a few hours), an oxygen addict (those withdrawal symptoms can KILL you), a comic book addict, a fark addict, I would say a work addict since I spend so much time there, a novel addict (I just HAVE to read books), a movie addict....

Porn is entertainment.  Nothing more.  Are there people that obsess over it?  Sure, but no more than with any other obsession.  That cute girl that makes a new cosplay outfit every week is just as obsessed as your average person that watches a lot of porn, and would get just as upset if you took it away.

There is nothing inherently wrong with porn, and more people are exploited by Wal-Mart than the porn industry.

i don't think i've ever seen an unattractive icelandic woman.  please don't prove me wrong with pictures, it would ruin my capacity for hyperbole.

anything else that brings people pleasure.  because the first thing crazy people with power do is ban pleasurable things.

No. They do not have a Constitutionally-protected right to free speech.

Believe it or not, it's one of those things that's pretty unique to America.

As long as I have the JCPenny catalog and back issues of National Geographic, I'm good.

pute kisses like a man: i don't think i've ever seen an unattractive icelandic woman.  please don't prove me wrong with pictures, it would ruin my capacity for hyperbole.


It might be more of a case of personality than physical attractiveness. People joke about men being willing the fark anything but at some point spending any time with an annoying person isn't worth the trouble, boobies or not.

 I'd love to do my part in rubbing off to  out porn, i just need to discuss salary and perks

We can send a man to the moon but we can't stop asshats from trying to ban porn?

They airbrush out the pubic hair, camel toes and nipples.

Nothing to see there anymore.

They didn't used to. Long ago, I remember ogling Michelle Bauer's wonderful contributions to my adolescent sexual development in the JCPenny (or was it Sears?) catalog lingerie section. Sheer fabric, faint outlines and darkness from nipples and pubic hair... It was sublime for a young man in the era before the Internet and cable TV.

They better get to work screwing instead of watching porn if *millions* are going to move away.

But do they still sell "neck massagers" that seem to only be used by women?

It's not just the humans, the elves are going to move away too.

and making it illegal to use credit cards from Iceland to subscribe to X-rated sites.

Lol at paying for porn with a credit card. Lol at paying for porn period.

The best quote is when they say it's anti-violence, not anti-sex.

"This move is not anti-sex. It is anti-violence because young children are seeing porn and acting it out," Gunnarsdottir said. "That is where we draw the line. This material is blurring the boundaries for young people about what is right and wrong."

I hate to break this to them, but youngsters have been curious about sex long before the internet came along. I know many people would like to make believe that sexuality begins when a person turns 18, but it's simply not the case. If a youngster is looking at online porn, it's because they're curious about it, take that away and they'll simply explore that curiosity in other ways.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not advocating children be allowed access to porn, I'm just saying that banning it will have no impact on their behavior.

I don't think there's an unattractive Icelandic woman under the age of 30.  But I don't think there's an attractive Icelandic woman over 40.  Living in that harsh climate does weird things to their aging process

We're not anti-sex, we just pretend sex is somehow equal to violence.

" But surely if we can send a man to the moon, we must be able to tackle porn on the Internet."

Stupid logic - how about: "If we can send a man to the moon, surely we can create a network that can't be censored or shut off by the Government."
