Submission + - Australians demand more censorship at library

sapphire wyvern writes: The Sunshine Coast Regional Council in Queensland, Australia, has received a petition bearing 3,222 signatures demanding additional filtering of the local library's internet connection. Those signatures represent around 1% of the Council's entire population, which is pretty impressive for a petition.

The reason? Too many library users have been using the libary's internet service to beat off to pr0n. (No information is provided as to whether public keyboards and mice have suffered from this indelicacy).

So, Slashdot: is this an acceptable deployment of internet filtering, or does the right of free access to information trump the right to non-sticky keyboards at your local library?
