Ah I love Americans. Youd never fall for half the crap we do.
First the Liberal Government (AKA fascists) spent 50 million I think on a net nanny that no one used as a 16 yo cracked it on the first day. The company that got that tender not only sold somethng worth 50 grand for 50 million, but is well retired and basking in the sun.
If the latest proposal (and note we have these stupid ideas being thrown up all then time til they realise its impossible, or that the idea was just released on a slow news day, or that the cost would be enormous and even that it just wouldnt work.) went ahead it would fail and it would be removed after a week, cracked in 2 hours, after a billion or so of our money was wasted.
My opinion is by the time they had it in place, the net will have moved on and it will be ineffective. They would filter out content based on key words. They couldnt filter out images, sound or video. It wouldnt defeat PTP so theres no point. Its just been thrown up to deflect attention from all the real problems we have in this country.
Finally, we all know what happens when you drive things underground.
