    Internet filtering WTF??


    this might not be a world topic, but in Australia they want to introduce a general filter for the internet!! this could be the end as we know it, no more downloading illegal content and all the sick sh*t we go online for and lets face it Kevin Rudd is a douche bag and doesnt have balls, so he'll probs block out some of the best porn life has to offer aswell.. and its all for the "children"..

    how about not buying them a computer or installing the internet nanny of something, what a step backwards in the freedoms we australians have as it is..

    China does it... the only next logical move is The land down under of course. Look up the Great Firewall of China.

    Interesting stuff.

    not sure if it will work for you but at work most website are blocked and I use proxy sites to get around them, but I am sure since ur govnt is implementing this they will take steps against this and prolly even make it a crime to get around their filter... sucks
