    you don't like the idea that australians can visit .edu .med sites? or
    maybe it's a good idea the Gov screen news sites in case there are reports
    they'd rather we didn't see..



    Of course once the filters are in place we won't know what we're not allowed
    to know.

    we won't be allowed to find out what sites are blocked or why.

    The freedom of information act will not apply, we'll just be blocked.


    we had a filter for those who wanted to control their or their families
    access to stuff, this one will potentially slow net access by as much as 50%
    or more, lock you out of all manner of sites and stop *not one single kiddie
    pROn download* using peer to peer software

    in effect we'd be sacrificing a lot to gain nothing. Maybe some peace of
    mind for those who don't actually use computers but feel that the majority
    of users are pedos..


    but hey, if you've considered all the comments and made a decision, your
    call

    As far as the kiddie pr0n p2p stuff goes, not worried: that is not the
    big problem. The real problem for me is the proliferation of web pr0n
    sites, their derivatives and the illegal gambling places. That is the
    real trouble.

    Still, only thing that worries me is knowing first hand the calibre
    of moron the government would ask to implement this thing. Nothing
    wrong with the concept, plenty possibly wrong with the execution.

    We'll see. If it comes to a vote, I'll go for anyone who puts
    the appropriate checks and balances in place.
    Otherwise, I'll just stay outside of this one.
    Not too worried about losing "freedom of information": we never
    had it in this country, this wouldn't be changing that now...
