Submission + - The Shortest Internet Censorship Debate Ever (rys.io)

rysiek writes: When a politician starts talking about defending the innocence of children, there's bound to be a great policy initiative ahead. That's how British PM David Cameron introduced the British porn block. That's also how the Polish Minister of Justice started his remark yesterday morning on how good an idea it is and that it should be introduced in Poland. This started the shortest Internet censorship debate ever, as in the evening of the same day the polish Prime Minister and the Minister of Administration and Digitization denounced any such ideas:

We shall not block access to legal content regardless of whether or not it appeases us aesthetically or ethically

There had been several full-blown Internet censorship debates in Poland during last 4 years. Apparently the arguments against it were not lost on at least some of Polish politicians.
