Still banging away at implementing one of their most irrelevant and wasteful election promises, Ruddster & Co are being kept busy censoring those who would critique the government's planned censorship of Internet access in Australia.
Filtering out the fury: how the government tried to gag web censor critics
I've said it before, I'll say it again: I have never, in more than 15 years of using a PC - with about 10 of those years having ready access to the www - accidentally stumbled across any unpalatable or pornographic web sites. Never. Ever. Seriously, you have to go looking for this shit, you can't accidentally come across a Nazi hate site, any more than you can stumble across kiddy porn.
I support any rational and achievable move to block access to child pornography, without qualification - identify the source sites and block them to everyone in Oz (won't stop people, but at least it makes it harder for them to find the sites). But the Ruddster is a twerp, a blithering idiot to persist with this wildly pointless and expensive plan, which will degrade our already pathetic broadband speeds and achieve absolutely nothing.
