Streisand Effect will kick in soon. I don’t even know any deep fake porn sites.

My first thought 😀

[-] [email protected] 38 points 4 weeks ago

I came here to post this. One should be careful because the action itself draws attention.

[-] Frozengyro 23 points 4 weeks ago

Can't just ignore it either. And it's a catch 22, if you don't talk about it people assume it isn't a problem. But if you do, it brings more shitty people to the sites and copycat sites. Also, unfortunately most female public figures have already been targeted by these sites.

[-] [email protected] 9 points 4 weeks ago

One of the issues here is that there is likely considerable overlap between people who are competent enough to circumvent the block with a VPN or the like, and people who'd be seeking out AI deepfake porn, just because the latter likely appeals to socially outcast (and unfortunately therefore often more tech savvy) people.

I'm in the UK and glad this has been blocked but I also absolutely don't trust the weird internet puritanism of the UK government, for at least the time I've been following politics as a you g teenager, there have been many attempts to block various aspects of porn on the internet, normally from a point of protecting children but the whole thing has always reeked of the government testing public outcry on blocking parts of the internet to later re-attempt to censor on their interests.

Ok but what are the sites? For science of course.

[-] [email protected] 29 points 4 weeks ago

That’s disgusting, where?

[-] [email protected] 20 points 4 weeks ago

Yes, where are these sites? So I can avoid them.

First line of the article:

Two of the biggest deepfake pornography websites have now started blocking people trying to access them from the United Kingdom.

This isn't (yet) the UK blocking access to them as part of a Great Firewall of Britain thing. This is the sites themselves blocking visitors from the UK, the same as porn sites for various US states.

As with porn sites, it'll be using the geoIP tag of your IP address, which is notoriously unreliable, especially near geopolitical boundaries.

Using a VPN or even a third-party (rather than your ISP's) DNS server will often get around them. However, doing so will eventually probably get you in trouble.

Sadly being an island, the unreliability near border boundaries isn't an issue, except for northern Ireland

It removes paywalls and ads.

[-] Dragxito 16 points 4 weeks ago

Damm that's great

[-] ButtonMcLemming 10 points 4 weeks ago

It's used to bypass paywalls.

Bringing a whole new meaning to "TRUMP SLAMS PELOSI"

[-] FenrirIII 17 points 4 weeks ago

Like two leather bags slapping together

[-] [email protected] 9 points 4 weeks ago

I did not want that image in my mind... Thanks...

[-] [email protected] 4 points 3 weeks ago

That's quite a freeform poem, there

ITT: Assholes asking "ironically" for deepfakes.

Yeah I get the sunny references, but the reason you are all thinking the same thing is because y'all acting like Mac. Who to be clear, was a giant PoS for asking the question. It should be a big ass red flag when you emulate the gang.

[-] TheGrandNagus 27 points 4 weeks ago

Making a joke referencing a character on a TV show doesn't make you the same as that character.

I sometimes say "one million dollars" then raise my pinkie to my mouth, but that doesn't mean I want to mass genocide planet earth like Doctor Evil lol

Most of the time, a joke is just a joke.

[-] NightAuthor 5 points 3 weeks ago

Do you not think some of the people asking actually want to know?

[-] TheGrandNagus 3 points 3 weeks ago

Well yeah I'm sure some do. Some out of genuine curiosity and some because their ethics go out the window when blood rushes to their dick.

But I'm still not going to jump to the conclusion that people are perverted creeps just because they're making a common pop culture reference.

On the topic of IASIP, I frequently reference the "because of the implication" line. I do so because I find it funny to reference shows I like. Not because I want to buy a boat and coerce women into having sex with me under the perceived threat of violence.

What about those of us who think deep fakes are no different than someone drawing a bad fan porno fiction?

[-] chakan2 5 points 3 weeks ago

I'd point you to the space episode of Black Mirror.

Personally, don't know. I'm pretty liberal and I'd be flattered if someone had deep fake nudes of me.

But I understand the counter argument.

It's a weird moral conundrum.

The UK populace is showing us that there are other peoples, European peoples, just as stupid as Americans! We are all one people 🤗

[-] Etterra 25 points 3 weeks ago

Everybody on earth is an idiot - it's just a matter of magnitude and subject matters.

Is this actual IP ban at ISP level or just the usual dns blocking that can be bypassed with cloudflare dns or something similar

[-] [email protected] 17 points 4 weeks ago

None if the above. It’s a site level for anyone from within the UK.

[-] ugjka 14 points 4 weeks ago

Oh is see it is the porn site itself blocking the uk visitors, not the uk govt doing fancy blocking. Why people keep posting paywalled shit, i can't read

I am just wondering if they are referring to citivai, which tries really hard to be seen as an art and base model/lora site.

[-] CrayonRosary 8 points 4 weeks ago

AI generated images aren't "deep fakes". Deep fakes came out a long time before image gen did. You take an existing movie and swap out just the face.
