Aussies moving forward to start blocking smutMikey 8 comments
It is finally happening. The illustrious leaders of our land down under are going ahead with plans to block porn at the ISP level.
Forgetting for a moment the issue of taking responsibility away from parents, the
pre-election gimmick plan was still given the green light despite a government funded study from 2006 that declared it won't work.
Anyone who understands how these technologies work, even at a basic level, will know this is destined for failure just like previous efforts have been. Remember 16 year old Tom Wood (pictured) from last year who managed to bypass the Governments $84 million client side porn filter in 30 minutes? We can expect to see more kids like Tom once trials have finished in Tasmania.
Which ever way it works out, be assured the Government will be announcing it as a success, our very own 'Mission Accomplished' it will be.
Personally I would rather see the money spent on schools and hospitals. You know? The things where money does make a difference.
