age verification

The government has quietly delayed their new age verification rules until the end of 2018, which was set to be targeted at websites and “apps” that contain pornographic content. Broadband ISPs would also be required to block sites that fail to comply with the new rules.

This would have casued a masive headache for ISP,s and anyone wishing to use age verification with your credit card Undecided

Re: age verification

I`m too old for age verification..... they would have to cut up slices of me and send them to a lab for dendro..... (whatever it`s called that they use on trees and bits of bone and wood etc).... Huh..

 

So when the new legislation comes into effect... I suppose I shall just have to stop watching porn Embarrassed   and find something less exciting on the telly !  Cheesy

Re: age verification

So will I need to verify my age just to look in my spam folder at all those women in various states of undress purporting to be from dating websites that claim I'm on? Grin

Re: age verification

Reading some of the comments from that linky has to make you wonder....

 

1. (from linky)

"I was wondering about this; as someone who’s paid for something, if the website gets blocked, am I entitled to compensation from somebody for paying for a service I can no longer access or… or what?"

 

2. (from linky)

"Perhaps the MPs are trying to figure out how to exempt their works PCs from the age verification.
You know, all in the name of research."

I don't know how they will make age verification work anyway, there's always a way round it, you make something idiot-proof and along comes a better idiot. As for my own age..I can verify that I am aged, (well..according to my birth certificate and that's hand scrawled on papyrus).

A float tip is pleasing in its appearance and even more pleasing in its disappearance.
Growing old is inevitable...But growing up is optional.

Re: age verification

... and Plusnet have announced the age verification  process will require a visit to their Sheffield office at 9am 23rd December 2018. Applicants will have to produce driving licence.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

If no driving licence, will a note from both grandparents do?  Grin

Verification fixation, it's not going to work. How can it?

Yes, but does it bear the signature of the correct Pharaoh?
