This just made Malaysia a better place to live than Australia.


Australia's federal government has announced that it is proceeding with controversial plans to censor the Internet after government-commissioned trials found that using a blacklist of banned sites was accurate and would not slow down web use.

I am for blocking of obscene contents and criminal sites. Good move.

How do you rate a site as obscene and criminal? They are subjective. To quote the article:


Instead, almost half of the sites on the government's top-secret list had nothing to do with this kind of content. Many of the links included online poker sites, YouTube links, regular adult sites, Wikipedia entries, euthanasia sites, fanatical religious sites, a tour operator's website and the website of a Queensland dentist.

Do you know the meaning of the word "monotony"? Yes, anyone can suffer from this very easily.

Aiya - already got tired and stale with those stuff already - like 10 years ago, when I was working on oil rigs - daily VCDs and Satellite ..... the guys onboard have a massive collection, just name it - Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Thai, Chinese, Swedish, Dutch, American, German, British etc etc ..... watch until puke but nothing to do OFFSHORE - either ping-pong, read, pool, eat, play-with-yourself, play with others(?), work, work, work, as BS said - suffering from monotony liow :D

Back to topic: Oz Govt wants to censor - good luck to them - an exercise in futility .... :rolleyes:

As long as the Aussie government do not censor the political websites or news websites, I don't see why they should not be allowed to censor the pornagraphic websites... its up to the Aussie people who voted for their government and I will actually support the censorship of porn sites and those online gambling sites... its not good for society in general. Only the hardcore perverts get worked up unnecessary...

Coz if can't get on internet, you can just go to your local newsagent there. :eek:

While I agree that porn and gambling should be censored / regulated ... but not by Govt but by parents etc and self-moral guidance ... the REAL fear is that after those easy targets of porn & gambling, the next ones will be religions and race .... finally leading to something like Msia's Sedition Act on almost anything not agreeable to Govt !

I don't want the govt. to tell me or my family how to live...Of course Sir... but I am sure there are some areas we can come to consensus with the government what is not good for the society in general...

My point of view: like in the Star Wars movies, once you give the Government a taste of power (in this case, to curb the Internet, no matter how noble the intentions are to start with ... ), and once they have tasted it, they will not rescind willingly and will usually end up with more and more reasons to curb and control in the name of the good of the society ...

Societies especially in the West have learned that once Govt steps in, it is difficult to get them to step out, hence they will "fight" the protect the "freedoms" ... to bear arms, information, press, speech etc etc ...

My 2 cents ....

I think it will be a matter of time before the censorship of Internet begins OPENLY in Maalysia - surreptitiously, they have already started with denial of service attacks, MCMC asking all ISPs to "block" certain sites where they (MCMC - another agency) deemed to be breaching certain laws, so far financial ones, but hey, come next GE, I will not put it past them to block all pro-Pakatan websites - I will be SURPRISED if they don't !! MSC Guarantee or no Guarantee - political survival OVERRIDES ALL concerns !!

Coz if can't get on internet, you can just go to your local newsagent there. :eek:Censor doesnt always mean "stop" or "ban" but to introduce limits.

The stuff sold at the newsagent is censored too...but it is allowed as long as it doesnt pass the limits of what is considered "acceptable".

The internet filter is going after the stuff that is considered 'unacceptable' but methinks that it is an exercise in futility

As for Malaysia, m has been told that a lot of the uncensored stuff in Malaysia passes way beyond the limits of what is considered 'acceptable' in most cultures.

Cheers, m
