    Ah now Australia gets to look like even more of a joke. Oh and did you know our government is introducing a net filter at the ISP level that will cause internet speeds to slow 30%+ and will do NOTHING to stop net crime as 60%+ of net traffic is over peer to peer networks that this filter wont be monitoring. 90% of people oppose this law but our government is still pushing it.

    There is some kind of irony that the greens are the only ones making sense in regards to this law.

    *sigh*

    It's possible I may soon be starting an "I'm killing myself - don't bother replying" thread. I just couldn't handle 30% slower. I'm already at the point of opening three links and then going off to make myself a coffee while I wait for them to load. Using Youtube is reminiscent of Commodore 64 loading days.

    LOL

    australian internet is not that bad, providing you have a half decent provider!

    i have very few complaints about it...however i know there are some out there who just don't have access to the good providers due to lack of coverage, and really a lack of education on how to get it, where to get it, and WHY!

    our system will really have to strongly questioned however if this net filter is put in place, which it won't, for the simple fact that the information they are trying to block out is already prevailent in society, you block the internet sourcing of it, and it will be distributed in the millions of other forms of data transmission and storage. this is in contrast to nations such as china, who never really had access to "Internet Porn" due to the fact that it was regulated from the moment it was introduced. in Australia, however, we have seen what the internet has to offer, and to remove it would to cause uproar.

    anyway, that topic is for another thread i think.

    EDIT: adding on to the "China never had Internet Porn" statement: they prove the fact that filtering the internet content will lead to finding new ways of distributing the stuff. and so china now has lucrative pornography markets, and i believe i read somewhere that a large percentage of the production of porn dvds (filming, and production) were now made in china. (HA! china are economically evolved due to their porn production rackets.) however, alot of things are now sourced primarily from china. it is the fact that china buy more of the pornography dvds, magazines, etc. that they create than anywhere else in the world (also something i read, don't quote me on it tho :]) that shows just how much of an effect that an internet filter can have.

    I am very happy not being on Dialup anymore.

    I could fill those tubes. Give me a few fast computers and a torrent program. Watch me work.
