KRudd's Brain Police Wants Internet Filter to Block 10,000-plus "Unwanted" Sites

Censoring the Internet suits those who seek to destroy Liberal Democracy. Our Constitution currently mandates that our elected Representatives must enact “the will of the people.”

* Who the f*kc are these creeps to  impose an Internet filter to block 10,000-plus “unwanted” sites from us? Did you vote for that?

Seems Kevin Rudd has a fondness for all things Chinese…. including internet censorship.

READERS of The Courier-Mail online have blasted plans for Australia’s mandatory internet filter to block 10,000 websites.

The websites form a blacklist of unspecified “unwanted content”, Broadband Minister Stephen Conroy revealed in Federal Parliament.

* The government stooges peddle the usual crap about “child porn”- but there are no 10.000 child porn sites anywhere. So what is it really?/ed

The 10,000 blacklisted websites would be blocked in addition to 1300 websites identified by the Australian Communications and Media Authority.

The majority of 225 comments posted to 12.44am yesterday revealing fears of interference from ”Big Brother.” 

Britomartis of Camp Hill thundered: ”How can the government be allowed to do this? 

”Block content and not tell us what it is! 

”The list should be public or they should listen to the people and not go ahead with this at all!” 

Johan Zetterlund of Annerley and Jason Davies of Greenslopes said the move seemed more in line with certain authoritarian, communist regimes rather than the ideals of a free nation. 

Paul of Carina raged: ”This is typical of a government that thinks it knows better than the people that voted them in and the arrogance of (Prime Minister Kevin) Rudd to think he should impose his morals and ideals on the population! 

”This is a communist style of imposition and the dopes that voted Labor into power should wake up to themselves!” 

Derek Squire of Redcliffe and Dan of Brisbane said that implementation of the policy would ensure electoral defeat for the Labor government.

Senator Conroy revealed details of the Rudd Government’s proposed web filter as he called for expressions of interest from internet service providers for a live trial of the technology.

As part of the trial, ISPs will test different methods of filtering the web with subscribers who volunteer. The trial is expected to last six weeks and will start before Christmas.

“The pilot will specifically test filtering against the ACMA blacklist of prohibited content, which is mostly child pornography, as well as filtering of other unwanted content,” Senator Conroy told Parliament.

“While the ACMA blacklist is currently around 1300 URLs, the pilot will test against this list as well as filtering for a range of URLs to around 10,000 so that the impacts on network performance of a larger blacklist can be examined.”

ACMA’s laboratory trial of web-filtering technology this year found filtering technology could slow internet access by as much as 87 per cent and by at least 2 per cent.

Electronic Frontiers Australia board member Colin Jacobs says live trials of ISP-based web filters would be rushed, as they were scheduled to occur as internet companies geared down for Christmas.

He said large internet providers such as Telstra and Optus would find it hard to participate, while mid-sized providers might take part in the trial simply to prove the technology “unfeasible”.

Mr Jacobs said the civil liberties group was also concerned at what would be deemed “unwanted content”.

“It is unclear how ACMA will scale up their blacklist to 10,000 websites and what will go on the list,” he said.

“Conroy said the list would contain illegal and unwanted content but we still have to see what would end up on that list.

“Under the current mandate that includes adult material, which would mean most material that could be rated R and, in some circumstances, material rated MA15+.”

Andrew Bolt is onto it also:

Can the Federal Government guarantee Internet speeds won’t fall and that no legitimate sites are accidently caught up?

* F*kc that. Who is to determine what’s a “legitimate site” or not?

AUSTRALIA’S mandatory net filter is being primed to block 10,000 websites as part of a blacklist of unspecified “unwanted content”.

Some 1300 websites have already been identified by the Australian Communications and Media Authority.

  1. Completely off-topic, broke a week or so ago, & just on the Ten News update, is the possibility
    that the Maldives will relocate its population & government to a new homeland. Australia is
    one nation that they are considering relocating to … not as immigrants with a view to
    assimilation (such as muslims ever “assimilate” into the dar al harb), but with their Maldive
    ban on anything other than islam / sharia law. Be very afraid if the Rudd government is in
    any way considering the implant of this hostile & alien nation onto Australian soil …

    Maldives to relocate?
    New leader wants to buy land overseas in case island state is submerged

    (and elsewhere)

  2. No worries, Mullah: we have plenty of desert to accommodate them. Trouble is they are not the kind of people who make the desert green, but intend to wave the green (or black) flag of Islam over parliament house in Canberra.

    If they were good for any kind of work it mighn’t even be that bad, but we know from experience that they get on the dole the moment they put their flat feet on the ground.

    So yes, less is more: they should learn how to swim…

  3. They should learn how to swim, but it will be us that is giving them the surf lifesaving training
    in another futile attempt to mix islam with civilisation, and paying for the burkinis and segregated pools & beaches.

  4. I see the Australian constitution is similar to the US one. That means when the wrong people get power they interpret it in interesting new ways and if they can’t interpret it in a useful manner then it’s to be used as toilet paper. Politicians govern people to enrich themselves, not to enact the people’s will. That’s why they will block any site they deem bad
    (like probably this one since it’s so “islamophobic”, which is a crime against humanity for all intents and purposes by the reckoning of the idiots) even if it’s popular and provides necessary news and views and why Australia may become the Caliphate of the Eastern Maldives when it is not obligated to accept anyone from there or anywhere else.

  5. The muslims from Maldives are not welcome in Australia – and if the Labour party allows these thugs to buy part of OZ then Krudd and cohorts should be shot as traitors.
