[no, I don't think Tony said "everybody has left because of the i***t-i****s"
cross posting. I think he intervened before that got out of hand. I too have
a life... and you may have noticed its gone quiet everywhere on that topic...]
It will be interesting to see how this one develops. It appears that
the pages are already distributed to other sites so one can expect
the lawsuit explosion will continue. They suggest they will also be
"rotating ip addresses" which (modulo domain name service delay) may
have some interesting effects on the filters that have been imposed.
Has anybody seen similar effects since the moral blinkers went up around
*.sg internet browsing?
I wonder if Sen. Harradine has similar measures in mind for us here relating
to other topics such as free abortion on demand? We've of course already
got the various E is for Ecstasy and pipe-bomb pages which get airtime...
