Yup. Gov'ts start with one thing, then another, pretty soon they pick and choose what they allow. That happens in all aspects of life these days.

Walls are expensive to build and to maintain - and in the end fail their intended purpose. Ask the Chinese (and, soon, the Israelis)...

Just thought I'd add this in, to let the rest of the world know what an idiot this Conroy bloke is:

Conroy plans speed humps for Australia's freeways | Digihub Blog | digihub.smh.com.au
"In an ambitious plan to protect Australia's children, Communications Minister Stephen Conroy has announced plans to install speed humps every 100 metres on all Australian freeways."

"Australia's roads are a dangerous place for children, so the Rudd government is doing everything it can to protect people," says Senator Conroy. "A vocal minority of drivers may object to the plan, but the moral majority can see that it's the right thing to do. Anyone who objects to the mandatory speed hump plan obviously hates children". (WTF???)

"Traffic management specialists, transport groups, car manufacturers, road builders and motoring associations have all condemned the mandatory speed hump plan as flawed, unworkable, easily bypassed, politically motivated and open to abuse."

It's all starting to sound very familiar....

I think it's a smart idea. There are tons of children and people being sexually abused now days in chat rooms and there is pornography everywhere you turn. It's sickening. I mean if pornography is illegal why isn't it banned or cut off by the President..?

As the subjects asks.. If not why does MS have it listed as a feature on the MS-AU site? I guess it's to make idiots like me go through the setup wizard 18 times for no reason. If you live in the US you have the right to watch Internet TV and to **** up the world as you see fit. :)
