Considering I work in a government department and their filtering system blocks bebo (the teenager's facebook) as 'porn' for some reason even though facebook is allowed, I don't trust mandatory internet filtering to decide what I'm allowed to view. I'm also not willing to continue to pay for ADSL2 that only works at dial up speeds, considering ACMA results indicate a possible slow-down in internet connection of almost 90%. Further, there are already filtering options available for anyone who cares to use them. You may mean well but I'm not comfortable with the possibility that I may not be able to research the beliefs of Muslim extremists for a university paper in a few years because the websites have been blocked as unwanted material. Leave the internet alone.
