Let's face it, we don't really go to the Post Office much anymore.

You might have popped in to collect a letter that someone was too cheap to fully pay for, or perhaps pick up a parcel that had no chance of fitting in your letter box, but now you might need to take a trip there so you can go back home and watch porn.

The Digital Economy Act has just been passed into law, introducing age restrictions for online porn to clampdown on under-18s accessing NSFW websites.
