AU Authority Moves To Censor Net Filtering Protest Site 225

An anonymous reader writes "On Friday the Sydney Morning Herald reported that an Internet censorship protest site had been set up under the banner 'Stephen Conroy: Minister for Fascism' and was ironically registered under the very name of the Australian Communications Minister responsible for trying to mandate the compulsory filtering scheme in federal law, stephenconroy.com.au. Within hours of the story being published, auDA, the Australian Domain Name Authority, had shut down the site, giving the owners only 3 hours to respond to a request to justify their eligibility for the domain. Normally auDA would allow several days to weeks for this process. An appeal to request an extension was denied, with no reason given. The site was quickly moved to a US domain, stephen-conroy.com in order to stay active while the dispute with auDA is resolved."

What about the payment from the marketing company who paid for access for the sales information and our user data, and the consequent revenue raised by selling this data back to the music industry. I'll bet it's not insignificant, marketing data is big business and nobody want's it more right now than the music and related industries.

Today is the 8th of May. Before I left work yesterday, I ASKed SLASHDOT about a spam issue I was working on. The following day at work, I realise my post has come and gone.. I missed it! Four years of rejected posts and I finally get accepted.. and I miss it! Well ... as there were no links (other than my homepage) I wasn't subjected to melting servers, notoriety, or death by flames. Maybe next time eh.
