If that is the case, and I do remember that the campaign was advertised on both television and in a letter drop, it suggests that not many people were interested in censoring material on the internet. Anyone that is interested has since installed the software on their PC, and have not affected the speed, performance, or the content of the internet for the rest of Australia. The article also suggests that this type of filtering is also better, as it allows for fine tune filtering to occur by the custodians of the PC. This leads me to ask:
Please good Senator Conroy, tell me why you want to go through with implementing your cleanfeed internet filter when it appears that only a very small minority of people want it? Are you not elected by the people, to help the people?
There's a few links on my previous post for you to look at if you're interested in campaigning against this type of draconian censorship. Also have a look at:
- http://nocleanfeed.com/ - No Cleanfeed Campaign
- http://www.efa.org.au/ - Electronic Frontiers Australia (EFA)
- Save the net campaign (donate to assist their advertising - if you wish)
- Some news articles from news.google.com
And as of this post, I am still waiting for a reply from the good Senator Conroy from the email I sent him. I wonder why he hasn't responded to me...
