Nice thread.

Yes, I heard a while back something about an Internet 2 switch over. The truth is all of these uh hem "people" that are trying to hide the truth have always been one step behind. If not many steps behind.

I remember a guy saying once and I quote " The biggest threat to this Planet is the internet." And yes, he was right to a certain degree. The real truth is, and you can quote me on this, the biggest threat to this Planet are the ones that are trying to hide the truth.

Its not wise to hide the truth. Especially these days. The more they try to hide it, the more it shall reveal itself.

You will be hearing a great deal about internet censorship now that the "cat" is out of the bag.

"They" might as well grant us with full disclosure and get it over with.

G'day

Thank you, everybody, for your thoughts & comments regarding this important issue.

It appears we might be depending on Bob Brown & the Greens to try to offer some resistance to this appalling plan.

Go Bob!.....Go the Greens!.....I can't believe I just said that.....

Kind regards
Maybe...maybe not

Yeah, the Greens are guaranteed to vote against it, as its policy...

Unfortunately, I think you'll find many Libs will support it as they see it as something their conservative constituents support...The Libs are the ones we need to try and sway over in order to defeat this thing...

BTW, did anyone see Conroy on The PM Project tonight ?

The usual crap he spews...He mentioned 3 specific things the filter would block...Kiddie porn, bestiality & violent pornography...And he also said it would block "other content that is refused classification"...Didnt mention all the other things they plan to filter...Tried to argue that having the list secret was a good thing...Typical bull-# from that catholic bastard...

Conroy makes me violently ill...If physical harm came to him, I would be the first to applaud

Man this is a real shame. Internet censorship peeves me on any level. As Aussies I know this has to hit hard, as I understand your kinda like us American's and fairly anti authority (not saying I'm right mind you). Is there any way some of you tech guys can pass out flyers showing some of your average internet users how to bypass the filters? Like bouncing servers or something?

Yeah, it is a real shame Ventian...and I hope no govt of yours ever inflicts an internet filter on you guys...

If the filter happens, yes, people will need to be educated on how to bypass the filter using proxies, vpn's, etc...

In fact, December Rain wrote a thread detailing ways to get around an internet filter


Gotta love ATS when you want to know how to do something

No I didn't..though from what you say it wouldn't have been good for my blood pressure.
The show I'd like to see him on is Insight, bet you he'd never accept!

Good Luck, Australia...You Guys Need To Win This One.

There are many threads I have participated in recently on this topic and I am pretty shocked at the list of sites and the criteria for such that are up for censorship.

It's the political and corporate corruptions whom fear these communications...they can't win.

You should have seen it, asIam, it was gold !! The panel really got stuck into him to the point he started getting flustered and began spitting and going really red when he tried to justify content filtering...like Bananaby Joyce does pretty much every time he opens his mouth...

Conjob on Insight ???!!! Like you said, he'd never accept...Certain members of the audience would verbally rip him a new one...

Thanks Memory


I realise a lot of other countries are looking at what's happening in Australia and how it goes here has the potential to affect people around the globe in a good way if content filtering doesnt happen, or in a bad way if it is implemented...

Rest assured tho, there is a good solid core of us who certainly won't let it happen without a fight, and if it does happen that won't be the last those pushing content filtering will hear about it...The fight will go on and on if necessary...

You're right, both the politicians and corporates fear an un-restrained internet...One only has to look at what is being proposed via ACTA to see that...

Its all part of a very big plan...And it stinks
