Goddamn Kevin Rudd.... Then again, all this decreasing democracy, Kevin Rudd's $35 million bunker... It seems something is not right... Something is not right at all... [img]http://blog.jinbo.net/files1/33/CINA/images/200502/080158289.jpg[/img] [B]Everything is farring into pran...[/B]
Even though I don't like this game, the Australian government can't get away with this for long.
[QUOTE=madmanmad;15735116]And so begins the astralian furry upriseing, they will leave there homes pillageing, burning, and raping all. And australia will be renamed the land of no return.[/QUOTE] No, they don't get stuff done, they just cry, whine and compare you to Nazis.
Eh, it'll be funny to see their reaction when they realise it didn't help at all.
The sad thing is that the government is not that bad apart from this retarded law, opinion polls are also sky high for them. I hope to buddha that the entire opposition stops the law in its tracks.
Australia's government hasn't realised that if the furries can't practice their fetish on the Internet... Then they'll have to yiff in real life.
[QUOTE=Frozen_Fish;15733928]They're not just going to ban Second Life; every MMORPG, online game or online store with content over the MA15+ rating will be banned: [url]http://www.mywii.com.au/NewsDetail.aspx?id=3662[/url][/QUOTE] Good thing i don't play MMOs. [quote]Any site that allows downloads, or hosts games that contain content that is deemed inappropriate for 15-year-olds. This includes services such as Steam, and could potentially cripple the future of digital distribution in Australia.[/quote] If that happens, i will find Kevin Rudd himself. Or i could go to that Parliament Building in Sydney and demand something.
Go hunt a kangaroo with a boomerang or something, it's what you should all be doing. [editline]12:24PM[/editline] This Rudd person just wants a return to traditional Australian values.
[QUOTE=Kilr;15734443]Looks like Australia is headed back to the stone age! Have fun! On another note, I'd say...more than 70% of the internet is things which this system would deem inappropriate. [B]Also, did Australian citizens vote this shit into effect?[/B] I have the strangest feeling they didn't, or that if they did, it was coated in glittering generalities making it seem to do more than it would.[/QUOTE] No, we voted the Labor party in, but not censorship.

[QUOTE=Mattarack;15734721]How would they get past the security. i recall there being some when i went to parliment last year[/QUOTE] Fly over it or squash it.
Australia :P
And how will they inform this ban, may i ask?
Those communist bastards. Wait... [editline]04:54AM[/editline] Second Life...I really see no point to the damn thing...you make a character and go talk to other people and see the character that they made. I actually have played it and it just seems like a big all around waste of fucking time :v:
I don't like Second Life but this is just crazy.
The plan itself is stupid and unworkable (they're going to disable SSL for everybody so they can filter it, which should be an indication), and it isn't going to pass the senate. Unfortunately the idea itself gets trotted out every so often, regardless of government (the previous government tried it too, but they realised how stupid the idea was)
It's interesting though, this is the first time I've actually been able to witness a government becoming totalitarian as it happens
Now I hate second life, but wow, this is terrifying. Poor Australia.
This really sucks for Australia I guess... I really don't like how the Aussie govt. is crusading against the internet and video games though.

Yes, let's equate banning a video game to killing the entire population of Australia Oh, gamers! What wacky things [i]won't[/i] you say?!
[QUOTE=Hezzy;15737262]Yes, let's equate banning a video game to killing the entire population of Australia Oh, gamers! What wacky things [i]won't[/i] you say?![/QUOTE] Thanks for the title fix.
Oh for fucks sake

[QUOTE=HubmaN;15737302]We won't admit we're all [i]secretly gay![/i][/QUOTE] Speak for yourself, don't put your secret inner torture and confliction on us.
The state in which Australia's in is fine (well, sort of) already. There is no need to just censor and ban things that other countries deal with fine.
w00t
Nice one Australia. While you're at it, why not just simply close every australian ISP and completelly shut down the Internet in Australia? That should protect your 15 years old from all the bad and evil stuff like sex.
[QUOTE=doomkiwi;15732901]Oh god, I'm so conflicted. I hate that furry cesspool which burned my eyes but I also hate the Australian government's crusade on videogames...[/QUOTE] This. Time for a coup? :v:
The government probably has the Australian internet cable on their desk, with a pair of scissors right next to it.
Wouldn't be surprised.
