Australia continues to ignore its own government-funded studies from 2006 that show ISP-level filtering to be ineffective and costly. The Australian government's disregard for those prior studies suggests that the driving force behind the current plan is more political than technical.


when will people realize government doesn't solve problems, it creates them. is personal responsibility that hard of a concept?

Scary stuff. I think it will happen here eventually. It already happened to the radio, tv, etc. Those with money make the rules, and this rule helps those with money keep the rest of us quiet.
