Well there's an election in about a year.
But; "Blocking the Interpol 'worst of' list will help keep children safe from abuse,..."
I dunno, what are children doing online unsupervised anyway, plus would they really be "accessing child abuse material online ?"
It kind of terrifies me anytime I hear "The Australian Government" having anything to do with 'Internet', 'Filtering', 'Broadband', and the like. None of them know how to use a computer...
Apparently "they" are building a $3.8 Billion Fibre Optic Broadband Network, I think it's been happening for three years roughly. Areas were it's already been 'Rolled Out' people don't seem to want it.
Every household in Australia will have a connection, a box where you have it enabled, or not.
With such a lot of people not knowing what a Computer is, but using one each day, it sounds a recipe for disaster giving unprotected Computers a 100 MegaByte/Sec Internet connection. (That's not even fast is it ? )
I have 1 MegaByte/Sec speed, but after 50 GB's of data usage, In and Out, it's slowed to 56K. Have to check my usage daily, DialUp is torture.
I suppose not having a Filter modelled on the "Great Firewall of China" is something. That was the last plan, which would have killed any increase in Internet speeds. The list of sites was 'leaked' and people revolted, heartily.
Honestly, with kids having to go to school anyway, surely Security Online could be squeezed into the curriculum ?
