On the topic of the raid, 'The Australian Communications and Media
Authority (ACMA) has denied it was behind a raid on whistleblowing
and re the list:
"A comparison of ACMA's current list with lists that have been published
online has not been completed at this time.
"ACMA is therefore not able to comment on whether the published lists
are the ACMA list."
A an exact comparison may not have been undertaken, but as we heard from
the Minister, a lot match. I'm betting all.
