Welcome back to hell, things aren't like they used to be. This site isn't as active as it used to be aside from Discussion. Frankyz moved to Oz and is living with Wizzy (who I haven't seen for some time actually). Seems like Oz is the place to be for living, though personally the thought of living in a country with many deadly creatures bothers me a bit. Have fun, enjoy the heat and cold beers

Yeah. Not sure where he's from exactly. Limerick, maybe? He moved to Germany to work with some brewing company as far as I can remember.

Not to mention a shrinking water supply, shrinking arable landmass, and ungodly temperatures well above 40 degrees Celsius in the summer, etc... Pretty soon the Commonwealth will turn it into a prison camp again. smile.gif

Never mind just video games, Australia's government is becoming legitimately crazy.

For those two lazy to click on underlined words: Australia's government is going to start arbitrarily banning any website they put on their blacklist, for any reason they feel like*. It's the kind of crap you expect from China or some other totally batshit-insane country.

They've been pushing for this for a while, and I thought that they'd realise how ridiculous this idea is. Apparently not.



*They try to say it's to block things like child porn, but the list (or at least part of it) leaked onto the internet a while ago, and there are some totally legitimate websites on there.

from what i understand, a lot of countries/ISPs do that now with many sites from the middle east.

there you go. anyway, i know my government has tried to censor lots of stuff on the internet by way of absurd bookkeeping laws. of course, nothing to my knowledge of an organised federal ban on a list of sites as to what you are talking about with aus. however, certain ISPs restrict access to certain parts of the web and/or P2P services on their own discretion.

ISPs are different, though. They have the freedom to censor what they like, and you as the customer have the freedom to choose which ISP you would like to use. This is a case of the government directly controlling what everyone in their country is allowed to see.

They don't, though... The only countries that do this kind of thing are those with insane totalitarian governments.
