Porn is enormous on the internet, but it's also at the center of what many people debate surrounding morals, child protection, and censorship. The gov has ordered that all ISPS in India block access to more than 855 porn websites, including redtube, theporndude, pornhd,... in a bid to stop underage kids from viewing sexual video/photo material.

Interestingly, while access to 18+ videos/photos is being restricted, it is not 100 % blocked. The goal is not to stop adults from viewing 18+ material but to "protect India's cultural fabric" in addition to protecting underage kids.

Grownups who want to watch 18+ material will still be able to get their stufff by turning to ******* or VPN's. The government is looking for various ways to prevent kids from accessing online filth, and it is thought that the current measures are just a stop-gap until a long term law is set up.

India looks like a total shithole now :D

Re: Prometheus 2

Wasn't a big fan of the first one. The video made by Redlettermedia about it pretty much summed it up for me.

It looked fantastic though, that has to be said.

Re: Prometheus 2

Thought Prometheus was pure garbage, so no.

Re: Prometheus 2

Sci-fi movies are too few and far between; I'm looking forward to it, even if the first part wasn't that great.

You are definitely right but I saw that they already unblocked all the sites now.

This probably explains why chat sites like chatroulette and omegle are overrun by Indian men looking desperately to talk dirty with girls.

As for Prometheus 1 and 2: sadly, Ridley Scott has become a senile old fart, who doesn't know how to make good films anymore.

As for porn in Indian culture: I know this is a very sensitive topic, as Indian people value sex highly, though want to protect their children/youth from its shadowy effects. Strange ways to achieve that, and won't be that successful, I predict.

Can we have Prometheus thread back?

Will not comment about porn in India, since I do not know enough about what is going on there.

About Prometheus and Riley Scott. People here like to bash and put down ingenuity and greatness. Scott is not different than Novak in that regard.

Talking like this about the director that gave us Blade runner, Alien, Gladiator, and many other great movies is just silly. I have not seen a bad movie from this director and Prometheus is no different. He even turned propaganda like Black Hawk Down into a good movie.

Prometheus got very bad rep and reviews since it is complicated, kept lots of things unresolved and many people were not able to understand it, but that does not make it a bad movie, far from it. Hopefully 2 will wrap it up properly. I am looking forward to it.

A thread for Prometheus 2 soon became a thread for censorship of porn sites in India.

I can't.
I thought for a sec mods did a bad merging thread job. Looks like this is simply a case of thread 'recycling' but with old posts intact.
@chico Well said, agree with you on Ridley Scott. While I am not a major fan of Prometheus per se, it would be silly to write him off as a director given his history and pedigree.

Why is it always the countries with lots of r*** statistics that censor sexual expression?
What? India has a pretty low rate when it comes to r***. But, recently for some reason the media has tried to project India as the r*** capital of the world while the reality is entirely different.

As for the blocking of porn sites, the issue has been pretty confusing. They actually ended up blocking regular porn sites and then came up with a statement that their intent was to only block child porn sites. The ban has been lifted entirely due to public backlash.

Coincidence? I don't think so, it's even statistically secured.
