Kids'll just turn to drugs to pass the time, now!
A kangaroo ate my firewall!
I only hate these types of news stories I hear coming out of Australia.WOW lot's of Australia hate here.
The vast majority of people here would be against any sort of censorship. The last government released a free program for 'parents' that would do the same thing but only around 1000 people took them up on it. Now the new government has decided that because no one wanted this crap last time now everyone get it whether they want it or not.
I'm really hopeing people make noise on this issue cause I'm yet to find anyone here that thinks it's a good idea.
Holy shit, am I flattered all of a sudden.Plus we have Aussies like Danimal who are ****ing awesome!
Yeah I figured that. I was saying that the only people who want this are family groups, not many citizens do. The reason there isn't a larger outcry is because this hasn't received any media coverage.

I rather like Australians themselves. They possess one of my most favorite accents in the world! Plus we have Aussies like Danimal who are ****ing awesome!
I just don't understand why the citizens are allowing this type of bullshit censorship. It's gotten to the point that Australia is practically synonymous with "censorship" when mentioned on the internet.
The report itself contradicts this statement. Also a negligible impact in speed is apparently anything up to 20%"The report into the pilot trial of ISP-level filtering demonstrates that blocking RC-rated material can be done with 100% accuracy and negligible impact on internet speed", said Conroy.
More like 103.4% eh Conroy? The technologies they are testing are broken.The report also found that the filters "over-blocked" up to 3.4% of sites that were not intended to be filtered, and that high volume sites would likely cause the filters to fail.
Australian radio presenter and writer Helen Razer dislikes the filter because she enjoys pornography, does not believe it causes harm to adults, and doesn't think that children are at much risk:
"I enjoy pornography. Perhaps not quite so much as I enjoy living among citizens who take an entitlement to free speech for granted. But I do like it quite a lot. And it seems that my porn is endangered. If Conroy's clean feed works, which some tech sceptics argue that it cannot, it will prevent access to all pornography ... I can report that one doesn't simply amble into X-rated or even R18+ material ... I have become adept at this; children, presumably, have not. And if they have, clearly they are the issue of the world's most reprehensible parents and should be sent to live with Hetty Johnston forthwith ... Despite the best efforts of some, there is no evidence that pornography will negatively affect me or other consenting adults ... The only lasting effect of my access to porn is a reflex giggle when the pizza delivery man knocks on my door."
GetUp said:Senator Conroy thinks he can sneak his plan to censor the internet in as Australia settles in for Christmas
My friend told me that he read somewhere that it was true.Source? "my friend told me" or "i read somewhere" isn't a good source.
I'm sure he means censorship-free not no-money free.Wait a second... you guys don't have free internet!
Do you? :O

I like how they block one thread of a forum. Wonder if its just that thread that's blocked or if it's the whole website? Same thing with one video of a streaming porn site...Here's the black list as of March 2009: http://220.127.116.11/leak/acma-secret-blacklist-11-mar-2009.txt
