Catch 22

So in the UK porn filters will be mandatory soon on public WLAN hotspots and even homes, reports Wired. Well, good for them chaps on the British Isles.

Only this creates a small problem. Being slightly paranoid, I am using a VPN provider to connect via VPN while on a WLAN hotspot. Too bad. In order to effectively prevent porn, they’ll also prevent me from ensuring my privacy. Because if I was able to use VPN I could still access anything I want (including porn), even if the normal access is restricted.

So sacrifice one for the other. A great prospect in a country which apparently spies on foreign diplomats during summits.
