The Federal Government has abandoned its controversial plan for a mandatory internet filter, five years after it was first promised. Communications Minister Stephen Conroy says internet services providers (ISPs) have instead been issued with orders to block websites listed on Interpol's 'worst of' database. "We've reached agreement with all of the telco service providers that they will block the worst of the worst - the child abuse pornography material that's available on the public internet," Senator Conroy told AM.
Australia's domestic spy agency has backed controversial legislation which would force telecommunications companies to store phone and internet data for two years. The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) says basic communications data from phones and emails, such as when a call was made or whom an email was sent to, is vital for gathering evidence.

Personally, I don't think ASIO is interested in your hot and heavy messages to another adult . Now if it were messages of that nature to a child, that be different.
If a scum bag is accessing info, photos, vids of children in a sexual manner. Well I hope the monitoring helps catch them. To think that someone is reading everything you write with interest is laughable. Asio dont care what 99.9% of the population do . Just IMO ..
