Stop Australian Internet Censorship

Discussion in 'The Pub' at netrider.net.au started by Tim^, Oct 17, 2008.

  1. Australians may not be able to opt out of the government's Internet filtering initiative like they were originally led to believe. Details have begun to come out about Australia's Cyber-Safety Plan, which aims to block "illegal" content from being accessed within the country, as well as pornographic material inappropriate for children. Right now, the system is in the testing stages, but network engineers are now saying that there's no way to opt out entirely from content filtering.

Australia is the only western country to start internet censorship ( i think so ) what next media censorship T.V censorship. instead of setting up better internet infrastructure in which even 3rd world countries have overtaken us, we resort to communist measure. i say grow up MR Rudd and cronies.

  17. but there are major business opportunity in asia. cant expect them to speak english fluently (they dont!). I wish i could speak mandarin.

    but then by 2020 half the australians will be from asian backgrounds & will already speak it.

  18. Completely aside from the fact that I am a staunch believer in personal freedom and responsibility:


    When we trust and empower the government to do the job of parents: our society is already f*cked.
