I've been reading news here and there about Australian censorship. While I do not know everything about it, it appears there is a going to be mandatory country wide filtering of specific sites (it's on Wikileaks apparently, but my corporate filter is blocking it) blocking child pornography, gay, fetish, gambling sites, religious sites, etc. (on a side note, I shall dub thee "The Great Barrier Firewall" copyright pending).
My question is, why is there not more of an uproar like with the Great Firewall of China? Is it because Australia is not a bunch of commies (no offense to any commies)? I'd imagine Australia would have an easier time blocking because of the bandwidth choke points.
