@rogerchristie I mean, if the story is “Obama wins election”, does The Age ignore it ‘cos MX ran it the evening before? I suspect not. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rogerchristie

@rogerchristie What I find interesting re MX and embargos is the idea that a story is “dead” if someone else does it… http://is.gd/7Vcl

ROFL! Seven visitors to my website this month searching for “senator conroy is watching you masturbate”. Five for “kate ellis nude”.

“Register your credit card for the ‘freedom’ to top up your credit whenever it runs low.” Pretty fucked-up idea of “freedom”.

Stupid telco voice-fail-to-recognition systems! Do you REALLY want your first impression to be given by a brain-dead robot?

@martinbarry Internet “filtering” has been govt policy for a year, in the media for a solid month, the ACS is only STARTING now? FAIL!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to martinbarry

@martinbarry The ACS is a tired old organisation and I wonder why I bothered becoming a member.

@middleclassgirl All this worry about kids looking at porn! [sigh] Didn’t every teenage boy have a stack of Penthouse hidden under the bed?

Aust Computer Society sets up a task force to look at Internet “filtering”. It meets 26 November. http://is.gd/7Wgq

@trib Oh the entire “protect the children” tactic is designed specifically to arouse emotions to prevent reasonable analysis.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@thomasrdotorg Half the things I learned as Venturer (Scout) would be banned now as “too dangerous”, but it built self-reliance etc. [sigh]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thomasrdotorg

RT @middleclassgirl: “I think the filter is trying to preserve an ‘ideal’ past that never really existed.” Agreed 100% There’s an essay!

@wolfcat The “keep them all fearful” approach is leading to a society where children are so cocooned they’ll be useless as adults.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@trib The “protectors” consider there’s something happening in the media that might affect opinion polls, that’s all that matters.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

I’m worried that the spin is “Internet terror”, tho, as if seeing something “bad” online is equivalent to being blown into pieces by a bomb.

via Twitter Web Client

@colwar Yes, like Howard govt’s NetAlert, UK plan is YOU choose to download filters on YOUR computers.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to colwar

Key difference in UK plan is “bad stuff” is “websites that may encourage endorsement / participation in acts of terrorism” not “child porn”.
