[For those accessing from Australian ISPs] ACMA & Blacklisting

=Banned hyperlinks could cost you $11,000 a day=Source SMH


Quote:
the scope of the blacklist had been rapidly expanded from child p0rn to other material including political discussions.
It is unclear which sites will be blacklisted, and there is no telling if links found in this forum are, will ( or subsequently ) be prohibited according to the ACMA.

Quote:
the scope of the Government's censorship plan could easily be expanded to encompass sites that are not illegal
Best to exercise caution.

A related site you might be interested in ( it might be banned later )

Re: [For those accessing from Australian ISPs] ACMA & Blacklisting

The first major Australian ISP is leaving the government's web censorship program. El Reg article. Among other addresses, christian websites and one from a dentist made it on the governmental black list.

It seems not all hope is lost for our Australian EFers
