Unfortunately Australia's blacklist will not be published either and one of the concerns is it expanding from blocking child pornography to other categories. There have already been indications by right wing conservatives that they want to include things like gambling, and I'm sure ARIA (Australian RIAA) would like to block torrent sites. Of course it won't manage to block anything from anyone that wants to get around it, but it'll probably reduce Australia's internet to a crawl.

Real computer scientists like having a computer on their desk, else how could they read their mail?
