The question that I want to ask, is why so many Americans etc want to get involved in what is our own choice here in Australia. As a nation we generally like and expect some censorship. What is that to you? What is it to Anonymous? It's our nation and we can do as we like with it.
We elected this government and the previous one which planned the censorship originally. Unlike the USA we actually do have a pretty democratic system here. Let us run our country as we like!
What's this crap about "as a nation" What gives you the right to speak for Australia? As an Australian I *hate* the idea of any censorship and I don't bloody want it and I don't bloody expect it. But what pisses me off almost as much is the fact that it won't bloody work and it'll only slow down my already bloody pitiful excuse for broadband.
