Kevin Rudd to filter internets

Filtering will be mandatory in all homes and schools across the country. is already on the AMCA's blacklist. NOT EVEN f*****g CHINA HAVE BLACKLISTED ED!!!! F you, Rudd.
The clean feed will censor material that is "harmful and inappropriate" for children.
The filter will require a massive expansion of the ACMA's blacklist of prohibited content.
The Government wants to use dynamic filters of questionable accuracy that slow the internet down by an average of 30%.
The filtering will target legal as well as illegal material.
$44m has been budgeted for the implementation of this scheme so far.
The clean-feed for children will be opt-out, but a second filter will be mandatory for all Internet users.
A live pilot deployment is going ahead in the near future.
What we don't know is just as important.
What age level is the country's Internet to be made appropriate for? 15? 10? 5 years old?
Who decides what material is "appropriate" for Australians to see?
How are lists of "illegal" material compiled?
Who will maintain the blacklist of prohibited sites?
How can sites mistakenly added to the list be removed?

This cannot happen.

will also block hundreds of legitimate sites and slow their internet down by 75%. Their Minister of Interwebz Stuff is a prime faggot who wants to block Steam, eBay and over 9000 other websites because he's a stupid overbearing Catholic.

Information is free, and the Australian government needs to be taught this lesson.

This goes against everything the western world stands for!

This has been kept as secret as they possibly could so no one could stand against it!
The message must be spread, the people should not fear their government! The government should FEAR its PEOPLE!
