@jeffsonstein Ah Jeff, Section 313 is a rather glorious piece of legislation! austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/c…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

Why haven’t the ASIC people brought “computers” on which they could “search for” or “look up” the answers to the questions being asked?

via Janetter for Mac

@jeffsonstein Hah! I’m in bed, but I’m watching a video of @SenatorLudlam questioning ASIC over s313 IP blocking. Worst. Porn. Ever.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@SenatorLudlam I tend to agree, it’s a bit light-on for The Explainings. But they should send people who understand the internet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SenatorLudlam

I want to refer to the ASIC guys as the Fat ASICer and the Thin ASICer. The latter does the “imaginary breasts” gesture quite well.

(Shut up, Criminal Lawyers, I know what “intent” means. But fuck it, if I did that sort of shit I’d be in a small room with a tape running.)

via Janetter for Mac

ASIC’s logic (“we didn’t get complaints except that one”) seems to ignore that disrupting legitimate communications is a CRIME. No charges?
