http://www.news.com.au/technology/s...-internet-debate/story-e6frfro0-1225825750956 * Anonymous comments banned for SA election * Michael Atkinson says speech still free * Media says censorship is 'draconian' SOUTH Australia has become one of the few states in the world to censor the internet. The new law, which came into force on January 6, requires anyone making an online comment about next month's state election to publish their real name and postcode. The law will affect anyone posting a comment on an election story on The Advertiser's AdelaideNow website, as well as other Australian news sites. It could also apply to election comment made on social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. The law, which was pushed through last year as part of a raft of amendments to the Electoral Act and supported by the Liberal Party, also requires media organisations to keep a person's real name and full address on file for six months, and they face fines of $5000 if they do not hand over this information to the Electoral Commissioner. Call me a tin hat wearer ( I am sure many will - but its better than calling me Susan for example) but it all starts of in little steps --- they are taking your freedom the same way you would eat an elephant - one bite at a time Think I am crazy ? - okay, no problem, that is your free right to express it and I support that. All I ask is that you study a bit of history to see how for example the Nazis took power - one bite of peoples freedom at a time.
