The government wants sex offenders to register details of their "online identity" to keep them from visiting sites popular with youngsters.  They’re called aliases for a reason, and there’s no law of the internet that says you must have only one.  Any technically adept kiddy fiddler is going to find a way around this scheme with ease.  It might work if they logged IP addresses or took the dubious step of installing spyware, but those can be circumvented as well.
