After Christmas censoring...

Firstly, I'd like to wish everyone a happy and safe festive period, regardless of what you believe in.

Now, I have not heard very much in the media recently about the good Senator Conroy's plans of censoring the internet. This may mean a few things:
  • The government has given up on their inefficent plans to censor the internet (unlikely - sometimes you just cannot stop stupidity)
  • The lack of interest and support in the cleanfeed scheme has silenced the government into rethinking their strategy (possibility).
  • There is far more interesting things in the news to report on - and most people interested in this topic are away on leave (possibility).
I have some hope that the Australian public have stood up against this scheme. It was also heartening to see parents (which have been used as the main reason to bring in this scheme) stand up and protest this scheme. If they're not interested in this solution, then the government should really look at what they're trying to do, and possibly drop it. Will report on more when I find out more...

All the best to everyone for a prosperous 2009!
