Wacky Internet News
No more Mc Porn, TheNextWeb.com is reporting that McDonald’s will no longer be allowing access to porn via their in store wifi.
That’s right: There were so many people watching porn while gorging on Big Macs that McDonald’s felt compelled to block access to all explicit content at their restaurants.
The decision comes after two years of pressure from internet safety activist group Enough is Enough that aims to provide safer public WiFi for “children and families”.
