You should have heard the twat
Watched the programme last night (http://www.abc.net.au/4corners/default.htm) and he and his supporters - a progressive thinking (?) Professor from some social studies department and some bible thumping God-botherer - opinions and attitudes begged belief.
The God-botherer came out with the classic "Why are people against this? If people think they have a right to download child porn then a file should be opened on them". The classic save the children angle. Never mind that there is plenty of legal material banned under this!
Conroy was his usual utterly incompetent techno-tard self. I thought he dude from iinet (or whatever ISP he works at) who originally railed against the technical aspects of the filter was going to breakdown in utter disbelief at what was being suggested and put before him.
It was typical political foolery. Conroy even stated that the blocklist couldn't be revealed because, unlike showing a list of books or films that are banned, it would give you direct access to the material. This, obviously, ignores the fact that 1) he's blocking it, and 2) if you have got around the system you are viewing what you want anything. I can understand not wanting to give an A-Z of kiddie porn but the list has to be up for independent review by someone other than the blockers.

Many people put forward the idea of "why not just block kiddie porn like other countries do?" but this obviously didn't fit in with the populous control that the vested interests wanted.
Funniest bit was watching a gathering of oldies being schooled in bypassing the filter so they could still get to a euthanasia site.
