Iceland wants to ban Internet porn

Iceland is working on banning Internet pornography, calling explicit online images a threat to children.

'"There is a strong consensus building in Iceland," Halla Gunnarsdottir, an adviser to the nation's Interior Minister, told England's Daily Mail. "We have so many experts, from educationalists to the police and those who work with children behind this, that this has become much broader than party politics.


A member of the parliament committee studying the issue, Jonsdottir says a porn ban has "near zero" chance of passing parliament and that she's working to find other ways the government can help protect children from Web porn.

"Introducing censorship without compromising freedom of expression and speech is like trying to mix oil and water: It is impossible," she wrote. "I know my fellow MPs can often turn strange and dangerous laws into reality, but this won't be one of them."

I was pointed to this LJ-news today... In fact I stopped reading those LJ staff announcements a long time ago because there are thousands of whining comments there and the changes that are being announced somehow always turn out more useful than detrimental to LJ.

I think LJ seeking a membership boost has been long overdue. They have to adapt because in the meantime their rivals are not sleeping. If we calm down and wait what happens maybe we'd realise that they're actually trying to improve something rather then destroy the platform.

That said, having a backup plan like DreamWidth is never a bad thing =)

It sounds very Zen, very ancient, almost legendary. You imagine trees in rose blossom, tiny lakes and a gorgeous geisha dressed in kimono arranging flowers in the garden...
