Submission + - Australian web censorship now dead in the water 1

deek writes: The Sydney Morning Herald is reporting that the Australian Web Censorship plan has effectively been blocked. Independent Senator Nick Xenophon has withdrawn support for the plan, after realising that there were too many questions raised about the system.

The Senator further stated that "the Government should instead put the money towards educating parents on how to supervise their kids online". Imagine that! Education instead of domination. Seems like a step in the right direction.
