Submission + - auDA moves to censor internet filter protest site

An anonymous reader writes: On Friday The Sydney Morning Herald reported that an internet censorship protest site had been setup 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,

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. Under normal circumstances auDA would allow several days to weeks for this process and an appeal to request an extension was denied with no reason given for the unusual response.

The site was quickly moved to a US domain, in order to stay active whilst the dispute with auDA is resolved.

Let's organize this thing and take all the fun out of it.
