Compulsory Filters

Talking of adult websites, I’m quoted in the Dom Post “rubbishing” the proposal from the Australian Labor Party to force ISPs to filter violent and R18 websites.

I enjoyed the interview as I did literally rubbish the proposal. You see if it had been a NZ MP who had proposed it I would have been far more diplomatic and talk about empathising with what they want to achieve but how this will not work as intended. But as it was a foreign politician and party I was quite happy to say it was a stupid nonsensical idea.

The reasons I think it is so stupid I blogged last week. I actually said good things about NZ MPs and how all but probably one or two are well informed enough that they wouldn’t support such a silly idea.
