it applies to everyone... and you cant get out of it. There's the possibility that the firewall will block any website related to controversial opinions on euthanasia, drugs or political dissent. Even legal content might get screwed with because the firewall wont be able to dissect what is 'Good' or 'bad'. Its also going to be controlled by the state, and it will be inaccurate.

 

It will slow the internet traffic speed down aswell.

 

1. Won't slow down f**kall.

2. This shit is already in effect.

3. You're not missing anything, realistically the shit on the list no one would want to see, and if you did you're a very questionable character.

4. Do you really think our Government can block everything? Dreaming. Ask any Government employee if their area is under resourced. :lol:

5. Proxy?

afaik it's only used for newsgroups at the moment but regardless of the medium it's the same shit imo. censorship is censorship. tv is censored, radio is censored, the papers are censored. don't get me wrong, the best thing about the internet is that you can get anything on it, but at the same time there is still shit that people don't need to see. if censorship can stop one old poofercunt from jerking off over a picture of a goddamn child, then i'm all for it.

1. Will slow down by up to 75% (Trials have been done). All traffic is monitored, so yes it will slow down, and depending on how much the ISP's are being hit at the time the slowdown will increase exponentially.

2. It is not in effect for the internet, not in Australia.

3. Bullshit. 1 in 10 sites that should not be blocked will be blocked by the program unintentionally. Though I guess you could say that you wouldn't be missing anything cause I suppose you technically won't know it should have been there...

4 & 5. True, there would be ways to get around it, but not for the vast majority of Australians. And no matter what, there would still be point 1. to contend with.

There is a lot of shit people don't need to see, like this site for example. The point is, people see what they want to see.

if censorship can stop one old poofercunt from jerking off over a picture of a goddamn child, then i'm all for it.

Let me run this by you, tell me if it sounds stupid...

if reducing the national speed limit to 25km/h can stop one old poofercunt from crashing into a kindergarten and killing a goddamn child, then i'm all for it.

Same shit, different package....

The world would be better off without the internet.

 

They should just filter all images. Win win. No porn and people start reading more.

No, I'd like to see the speed limit laws relaxed. If you are looking out the windscreen instead of at your speedo you have a much better chance of seeing a kid/pedestrian/other motorist/etc and jumping on the brakes quicker.

i have to say.. your post did reek of the sensation...

 

Terms, like....

 

"ISP's are being hit"

"the slowdown will increase exponentially"

 

And statistics, like...

 

"Will slow down by up to 75%"

"1 in 10 sites that should not be blocked will be blocked"

 

and then

 

"I guess you could say"

 

Is this you're own version of the Fox News "Some people say..."

It's the magic of irony.

 

You can make a serious statement, and if you're utterly wrong, you can pass it off as a joke. ^_^

Of course it depends on what you read, thats why you should read a lot and make up your own mind. I've done this, and don't put me into the catagory of "People fear what they don't understand". I understand this stuff quite well.

I don't see how my terms appear to be sensationalism Cush. My information makes sense, and it took a decent amount of research to find it.

 

My terms are sound, internet traffic never goes the way it is "predicted" to. I can see a lot of ISP's crashing. The slowdown will increase exponentially, what do you think its going to be a linear or limited curve? Not likely. The limit will be reached when the server crashes, but until then the rate of slowdown will increase as traffic passing through the ISP's increase. Reason? Slowdown will be compounding whilst traffic continues to increase, more slowdown + more traffic = exponential slowdown. Sensationalism? No. Maths? yes.

 

The statistics I quoted were from some of the sites I and my brother found, one of which is quite detailed about the whole issue by another guy who has done a ton of research (on and off the net), and has collated all the information he has gathered so far together. They are from trials, sure in the final version this might change, but upon first implementation it wouldn't be by much. Sensationalism? No.

 

And mate, likening me to Fox News, and then putting in only part of my statement; "I guess you could say", is rather hypocritical. I actually said "1 in 10 sites that should not be blocked will be blocked by the program unintentionally. Though I guess you could say that you wouldn't be missing anything cause I suppose you technically won't know it should have been there..." That statement is nothing whatsoever like Fox News's "Some people say". I was clearly stating that you could say you would not miss the content, with reference to vr4nut's post, but that would only be because it doesn't show up, even though it is there. I was not avoiding confrontation and nor was I making a statement to which I could not be held accountable, which is what the "Some people say" statement does.

 

In all honesty, your post, trying to make out that mine "reeks of sensation", has more sensationalism than mine, and only proves your point because you have cut my statements to do so.

I work for the Government, so technically I'd be making the decisions for myself still.

 

lol dude I completely understand the argument, but whinging on a car forum isn't going to do f**k all. If you want to stop this shit do something about it. Go to 60 Minutes with a story, go and make Insight do a debate on it. Arcing up on here is just going to drive your blood pressure up.

they can't block porn that would mean they would be blocking 99% of the internet! :lol:

 

If they did that there'd only be one website on the internet and it'll be www.bringbacktheporn.com. :lol:
