Windows 7: ACMA blacklist

20 Mar 2009   #1

 

It seems 1172 URLs are blacklisted by the Australian Government already, Whirlpool`s ISP was threatened with $11,000 a day in fines yesterday after a user on Whirlpool`s forum posted one of the links

ACMA takes aim at Whirlpool, supplier | Australian IT

Link removed

Hmm, the blacklist contains a single entry for "http://"...their systems can use that entry to hook every address starting with "http://"

This looks like the beginning of the end for the internet as we know it.

*looked at the list while at work*
Damn. A whole list of porn/pedo/poker-sites... Oh well, it's kinda bad that they block regular adult sites (totally legal, I mean). For the pedo stuff, it's understandable.

For the fines, it's a bit exagerated seriously.

EDIT

Would it be better to take out the second link??

The internet is for everybody and for freedom of speech.

People "don't have to look at what they consider to be bad sites".

Internet is made for the people by the people.

I've removed the second link as the first link I clicked from that page contained CP

Soon the internet will be subscription based and you will only be able to access sites within your subscription from your ISP and all the little guys out there will cease to exist, there will be no more torrent sites and no more freedom of speech and the Internet will become policed just as our lives are.

These youtube videos are blacklisted

[nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08we89neDUo"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]

[nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IjcP1FJtA6s"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]


They probably searched the Wikipedia entry for the main character of this video, this one was a home movie production yet they blocked it

I don't think 1172 sites is many at all....?

My isp for example has a thing called safeguard which is ON by default unless you can prove with a credit card or similar that your over 18, else they block thousands of sites, not only porn related but many forum/chat sites also...

Google manages their search filter similar to the governments internet filter

It seems they picked up from Google`s search filtering
