ISP Filtering (In)Action Update

Posted by Sam D on November 26, 2008

Resistance -Nothing. Actually, they have not done anything about any cause in the last few weeks. 0/10

GreenLeft Weekly – A brief mention on a related forum which resulted in no discussion. 1/10

GetUp! – Published a blog piece by Irene Graham of Libertus.net and apparently emailed some members promising action and a campaign, neither of which have eventuated, yet. 3/10

Samizdata.net – To say I expected more from these people would be an understatement. I don’t think they are pro-filter as such, I just think they don’t care what happens in Australia. 0/10

The Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy have released the results of their Q & A regarding the Live Trial of ISP Filtering. There are a lot of responses to questions, but I would not consider many of them actual answers. 0/10

    A few hours after I wrote this, GetUp! came to the party: http://www.getup.org.au/campaign/SaveTheNet/442

    I think I can bump them up to a passing mark now.
