It seems the government has got a bit narky with some critics of it’s Internet censorship policy. From the following article;
This morning, the Sydney Morning Herald reported that a policy advisor at Senator Conroy’s office had sent an e-mail to the Internet Industry Association (IIA) expressing concern that Internode’s Mark Newton, as an IIA member, was behaving “irresponsibly” with regard to criticisms he made of Conroy’s controversial content filtering scheme on the popular Whirlpool broadband forum.
SMH reported that the email was accompanied by a phone call demanding the message be passed on to senior Internode management.
Hopefully the Liberal party will find some liberal instincts and oppose this legislation. Hopefully they will do it loudly.
Minchin responded at the time that the opposition was “certainly not” committed to supporting the scheme in parliament.
