The Australian Government's mandatory internet censorship scheme still threatens to become a reality. If it does, it will slow down our internet and block access to thousands of sites deemed "harmful and innapropriate to children" to all households, whether there are any children living there or not. Even where there are kids, couldn't parents, I don't know, try supervising them? At the very least they could use one of the optional filters that are already freely available instead of a universal filter inflicted on everybody.
Get Up.org is running a campaign to try and stop the scheme from going ahead. If you're a fellow Aussie and you believe in freedom of information click here to sign the petition.
Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so, too. -Voltaire
