We have achieved 1545% of our goal. Let's keep going
Damn, we've fought the power, won, picked up their pieces, threw'em in a blender, drank, spat in a grave, defiled that grave with unspeakable acts, raised their liquid form with necromancy shattered that form with a ear drum busting, "Booyah, Bitch!"
If they do that I forsee shell hosting becoming a very much profitable business in Australia. SSH tunnels, 'nuff said.
Though I also forsee a problem for the rest of the internet - when half of the entire Australian people suddenly sharing a single IP address.

You do know something like this just simply won't work? Even if they do somehow magically manage to implement this, there would be so many holes and flaws in the thing it's going to be as useful trying to knock down a concrete wall with a novelty inflatable hammer.

A fur is neither human nor animal though is it?
I always thought of a furry as a different species.
Seems to me this site at least would be fair to blacklist within the rules the government set out, anyone who's confused by this should turn off their adult content filters for a minute or two.

Australia censors everything else, why not this too?

And here I was thinking Rudd was a cool dude.
He takes away my PRON and he's going to be reduced to what Howard was when he left.
I suspect that the issue would have come to a head eventually, no matter which side got into power. It's not like the Coalition can be entirely excused from blame... they were the ones that made certain web sites illegal in the first place in 1999 - although, one wonders whether the way it was implemented was to make it deliberatly ineffective in practice - and I suspect the dismal failure of their previous system (getting ISPs to point parents to filters) would have tested their patience in time.
It's amazing how many of these things have swung as a result of a single person (or two). In the 1999 laws, the [Coalition] government needed one independent's support in the Senate, and that could have been done in order to get his support for other laws. When it comes to R18+ video games, it's reportedly being stalled due to the objection of one state attorney-general. And in 2008, Labor's been lucky to find a couple of (quasi-)independents that may well be sympahetic to their cause - one being a social conservative, and one that used to campaign on a "no-pokies" ticket in state politics and therefore may listen to attempts to ban gambling sites (again, already illegal except for things like Australian lotteries and tote betting).
We can only hope the Greens will stick to their guns and hold firm on their opposition to the legislation that'll probably come sooner, rather than later. I for one will also be interested in the eventual workings of the legislation. Without either a big boost in funding for the Classification Board, or the ability for an attorney-general to submit a "banned" list without need for separate classification (this I'm REALLY nervous about), one wonders how effective it can be in actually filtering anything out, much like the status quo now - except you would still have the slowdowns. Quite sobering indeed, either way.
Probably the thing I'm most peeved about is the argument that seems to pervade the whole thing about child pornography - yes, I do abhor it, but I don't think the "you're with us or you're against us" mindset taken by the government (read: "if you oppose the filter then you have the mind of a kiddy-fiddler" or similar). Especially if R18+ content [again, already illegal in Australia if it's not protected by stuff that checks whether you are indeed 18+] gets filtered too, you take out a lot of stuff that isn't rated that way on sexual terms - which then distorts their argument a lot. I think the R18+ in video games debate highlights that well, where the argument against that is against protecting children from violence. Go figure. Not my fault they can't handle their own children. >_>
Sorry for the long rant (or over-intellectualised TL/DR perhaps), by the way.
