Jesus, a fair few people aren't going to be happy.
This site may very well be blocked from us in the future.
Fucking Australia. No 18+ games and now internet filtering. I don't care about blocking pedophile sites and such but I hope they don't go too overboard with blocking crap!
The Government is fucked in the head if they believe Australia wants compulsory internet filtering.
Rather than compulsory internet filtering I think Australia would much prefer cheaper and faster internet.
if they block torrents the shit is going to hit the fan
Australia is going fuckin nuts man... what's goin on?!
Yeah for all we know gbatemp could be blocked if they decide its cause it details how to do illegal activity.
calm down it only blocks sites with child sex and drug sites which i neither give a fuck about nothing else.
Do you really care..?
We're fucked and there might be a domino effect
Sure, I don't care about certain types of sites being blocked, but it opens the door for restricting other things and taking it too far.
The government shouldn't be able to make a judgement on this, we are supposed to be a democracy.
Bwhahahahahahahahahahhaha, Australia is really trying hard to make their country a reasonable place to live in. Although I give them credit for not caring about millions of $$$ they are going to lose if they make this decision.
They'd be better off trying to educate the parents of kids that they need to be supervised when on the internet.
The last part is a bit too vague, the 'commit crime' section.
You are very naive, especially for someone on this site. GBAtemp is near the forefront of things that'll get blocked after people decide that mandatory filtering of drug sites and "sexual violence" is okay. I also hope you don't use any torrent sites, because they're right next to the frying pan as well.
I knew I never should I started talking to Australia when I got drunk that one night, it gave him too many ideas.
We may also want to keep our eyes on Canada, I may have accidentally said something to him to...
Glad I don't live there. No porn.
No way I could live without that
What kind of legendary bullshit is this? Free money to block other content, what is this China, even China's censorship will never compare to Australia's once this is implemented. Australia will not be entitled to have anything good eventually.
It will be billions lost from this decision and anything else they cook up.
Exactly. I'm really glad that I don't live in Australia. I hope this doesn't spread to European countries...
And this is why i live in New Zealand XD
And also, What if people want those sites?
Trust me if this gets through Conroys house will be burnt down by vandals and Kevin Rudds poll numbers will plummet, Only a Labor PM can be in power and still manage to screw up so badly we all vote for Tony Abbot, a man with the charisma of an Arnotts Arrowroot biscut
