E-AUSTRALIA TO BECOME E-CHINA.. + OTHER SHIT

Posted by RubberNinja - January 8th, 2008


It would appear our newly elected prime minister Kevin Rudd plans to introduce a mandatory internet filter to every Australian ISP. What does this mean?

Well in short, it means total internet censorship. Nearly to the scale you'd see in communist regime like China. The government will be able to block anything they deem inappropriate. This doesn't just mean pornography, they mean what they say. ANYTHING, deemed inappropriate to minors.

Anyone can unblock this filter on request, but the problem here is that sites like Newgrounds (for example) may be on the black list for families, along with pornography. SO you'll most likely see families keeping up the filter to protect the kids from tits and ass, as well as Pico and Alien Hominid.

Personally I think this proposed filter goes against everything a democracy stands for. Hopefully it won't get through parliament.

If it does we'll all make cartoons calling Kevin Rudd a homo, because that's the mature way to solve arguments online!!

So yeah, if you're an Aussie.. Let me know what you think.

READ MORE ABOUT IT HERE

ANYWAYS.. OTHER SHIT NOW.

Today I got contacted by the local film school I was doing animation substitute work for last year. Turns out they want to give me a position as their new semester Flash teacher. Should be cool I guess.. Teachings rather piss when you know what you're talking about. Just spills out of your mouth like diarrhoea onto the kids ears.

Speaking of spilling diarrhoea onto kids ears, I think I have to get some sort of mandatory background check. So they can see if I'm not wanted/convicted kiddy fiddler.

Oh and a few days ago I got word that I'm being contracted on for more TV work with ABC this year. Should keep food in my belly whilst in USA this July..

SPEAKING OF USA.. I got fucking sweeeeeeeeeet news about me going there this year. My aunt who has an apartment in LA is going to be away the month of July and she's giving me her place.. So I'll be living there by myself for the whole time I'm there. So if any of you rascals want to go and cuddle at my place after Comic Con, be my guest.

I'm looking at you Luis!!

Also - I still have my Random Art Thread going:

first comment.

Nobody cares.

that seriously sucks.
Its bad enough NG is already blocked out of a few countries as it is.

Yeah, well if something isn't done about it soon.. We might see a lot of our young Australian friends going bye byes.

But this is just an extreme.. But then again.. NG is black listed on EVERY school network now by default.

Thats is idiotic. and i fell breaking basic human rights... hell if children watch porn their parents should filter it.. not the god damn goverment. And why block NG.. sure some of it is innapropriate but.. its not illegal.... well the stuff that gets through the portal shouldnt be. I hop the goverment wont block Ng.. It would suck.

Sorry for my bad spelling. My keyboard is broken :\

NOT BLOCKED!!!

Thank god I'm in the U.K...

What happened to Richard? He looks like a zombie or something...

P.S. I heard from a friend that BGFL (Birmingham (U.K) Grid for Learning) has unblocked Newgrounds.

Isn't the U.K great?

Damn that does suck. I know my college doesn't have Newgrounds blocked, thank god it isnt when boredom strikes. Well, if that bill does pass (god knows it shouldn't though), we should skip right pass flashes and go to full blown collabs, hell I'd probably make something just to show how patriotic i am against such acts! >:(

...then again i have no tablet... so maybe not... heh

maybe <a href="http://learnmath.tk">http://learnmath.tk</a> will help???

I didn't read the whole thing, but why not just get rid of, or block the filter?

Because it's a inappropriate content filter for MINORS. You can get it removed, but since it blocks actual bad stuff.. I'm saying that most families wouldn't get it removed. Just read it.

that sucks. when i saw the title, i thought the worst. Hopefully the US's president won't do that. i bet he won't, but hey, somebody could.

you could always swim to new zealand to check your PM's and then quickly swim back?

Well I'm sure anyone in the eastern states could. All I have in that direction is Africa.

Oh yea THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH FLASH... waaa waa waaa

your fp posting priveledges should be taken away!

Only if you come cuddle with me ;D

wigglytuff?

You're not so tuff.

Being a Flash teacher actually sounds pretty ideal to me. Definitely something I could spew on about for hours.

Yeah I'm looking forward to doing it a lot more.

shit ben leffler wont submitt his scary flash games on here and some other australians on newgrounds that submitt awesome shit damn just hope it dont past

i am so stupid, i forgot to put new president in there.

Your X is a good at drawing.

Yes, she is.

Not the only thing she's good at either.
