You Aussies need to man up and start fighting before it's too late.

The only good censor is a dead censor.

guess we can all just copy and paste...
doesn't seem that hard, i don't think they can start charging people for independently visiting web sites.
wow, guess they're seeing people in the way school officials do when they block students from viewing certain pages in a high school computer lab.

Well I could be a jerk and tell the people of OZ to go get their guns and show the government just who is in charge. And then say "Oh that's right, you voted to give them up over that nut job at the marina." And then say, "You reap what you sow."

But I am not like that. I am sure there are many things that you can do give a very strong hint that kind of government is unacceptable and will be removed, by force if absolutely needed. Although you are more in favor of rounding them up and giving them an airdrop into China or another country where such forms of government are accepted.

As for my fellow people of the US. This is why the 2nd Amendment is very important and that anyone that says guns need to be removed from the population is either lying or extremely stupid. Sorry Oz.

Thanks for posting that information. The Australian government is quite protective of your fragile psyches over there. I was unaware of how repressive your government is. Thanks for the heads up! I do agree that the censors should be gotten rid of. Those in government who have the arrogance to believe they should control what other adults can see, hear, and read have no place in a free and rational society. They spend their days looking at the perverted, subversive, and dangerous content which they proclaim turns those who are exposed to it into perverted, subversive, and dangerous people. Off with their heads!

Isn't Australia still basically under British authority? Please correct me if I'm wrong.

The U.K. is the first major police state, so it wouldn't be too surprising that it's taking place in Australia.

New World Order.

hey Diplomat, your avatar looks strangely familiar... hm....

Doesn't Australia have no constitution?

by the way, does this only apply to ausies or if i start hyperlinking those pages, am I suddenly going to find the australian taker-ment trying to rip off my arm or leg?

I don't think the censors can ever win this battle. Power structures all over the world are tubling down from the unbottleability of the internet. You just cannot contain anything.

Someone made a comparison of censorship to Radon Gas, I just cannot help put my two cents in on that subject, which I see as a conspiracy all it's own.

About that Radon Gas thing, the amount of Radon gas considered unacceptabile is 4 Parts Per Million in air, which is thin compared to water, you follow?

The amount of Radon in ground water in a 4 PPM area is about 1000 PPM.
So you heat a pot of tea and whoosh! All that water turns to breathable steam! You still following? Nobody is saying anything about the radon in the water. Anyone who boils water in their home should be long ago dead by my reckoning. One whiff of hot tea should be able to take down a horse!

My take is that Radon is not so bad, hell they make folks stick a blower in the basement to address it. I figure thats cammoflage because the radon is not a hazard at all.

Then why make people test their basements? You might ask!

So we can provide the government with the best darn location map for radioactive materials ever! Radon is an indicator of more prized radioactive materials in the earth.

How's that for a conspiracy theory? I got my numbers off a government site. Just hide in plain sight.

It is amazing that Australia has gone so deep into censorship and the NWO control. I used to think Australia was a place to go for "freedom" - that is amazing they are so "Big Brother" over there.

Exactly! If they are going to ban sites, and make it illegal to view them, we should have access to a list of them so we know what is legal and what is not. If they refuse to present to us a list, that is entrapment.

It won't go through. People will go berserk.

Indeed. Most people are totally unaware that these laws even exist. As soon as someone gets a whopping fine, there will be a lot of publicity about it. That will raise awareness that will scare people, and that will cause the Government many problems.

They will shoot themselves in the foot with this one.

This is easy.

If you dont know you have gone to a prohibited site, click, and get fined- You've just been scammed by your govt's moneymaking gig. If no one's being told what the sites are, but everyone gets fined- You've been robbed.

Get it? got it? Good. Have a nice revolt, k?

Why do I always have to read the word "nazis" in postings?
This is such a pathetic and mentally #ed up and brainwashed society.

Oh and if anyone wants to ban me for that. Feel free and support ignorance.

I do not know about Australia, but here in America laws must be VERY specific about what they prohibit or require.

For example, THIS is a hyperlink

THIS is NOT a hyperlink:

Very good point Captain,did you report it? I hope not,I once came across a bad site and after much thought decided to forget about it as if I reported it to the government,I wouldn't trust them.I feel they would nail me for finding and reporting it.

I've been thinking a lot about this Clean Feed.
If our fearless leaders are really trying to Filter Aussies wouldn't you think they would start with the biggest search engine in the world?
like Google noway they would Googles to Big and Rich. Just slow down the every day user.

Report their own website for restricting freedom of information and working for the elites.

Scum. I wouldn't shed a tear if something nasty were to happen to them.

Wow, lets just skip beating around the bush and call it what it is...

... get the bonfires lit, and the swastikas hung, it's the new-age version of a book burning.

Complete with gestapo style repercussions for holding onto the banned reading material.

And it's all yours for the low low price of doing nothing about it!
Don't act now, and get a complimentary bar-code tattoo and a free room at your local population control center.

Fascist scum makes me sick.

March 19, 2009 02:15pm A SECRET list of websites deemed illegal by the communications watchdog has been leaked to the public, and includes one of the most popular sites in the country......

The secret blacklist of illegal sites, maintained by the Australian Communications And Media Authority (ACMA), is the basis of the Federal Government's web filtering plan. "Many of the sites clearly contain only run-of-the-mill adult material, poker tips, or nothing controversial at all", said Electronic Frontiers Australia (EFA) Vice-Chair Colin Jacobs........

"Even if some of these sites may have been defaced at the time they were added to the list, how would the operators get their sites removed if the list is secret and no appeal is possible?"

.......It contains 2395 sites, about 1000 more than was thought. Last November the media watchdog said the list contained 1370 sites. “The leaking of the list has confirmed some of our worst fears,” said Mr Jacobs. “This was bound to happen, especially as mandatory filtering would require the list to be distributed to ISPs all around the country."

Well the battle has began.
