The more people dig into this NSW Parliamentary audit of web usage, the more stupid it sounds.

This morning The Australian is saying the audit counted news.com.au and smh.com.au as adult sites because they contain links to / advertisements for "adult" dating sites. In the sense that ALL dating sites are classified as "adult".

The acceptable use policies also say they keep web traffic logs for seven years [!], upon which the redoubtable Prof Roger Clark makes comment in my Crikey article yesterday.
