COMMENT: As an eagle-eyed Whirlpool forum member discovered, Internet censorship advocate Senator Stephen Conroy is censoring his own website.
Senator Conroy’s tag cloud, sans ‘ISP Filtering’
In a second twist of irony, the content censored from the website’s front page tag cloud of site searches is any reference to the ISP filtering proposal.
While legislation was passed in 2003 to exempt certain documents pertaining to the ISP filtering scheme from Australia’s Freedom of Information Act, much of the information still needs to be legally provided. A search using the website’s text box will still navigate to the documents.
Apparently Senator Conroy thinks that making us type instead of click is enough to deter the Australian public from trying to access information.
