Confirmed: Second Life, online adult games to be banned outright in Australia
Web filters to censor video games
Internet filter: $44.5m and no goal in sight
These articles are being passed around amongst people on my Plurk timeline, and even though I'm not an Aussie I'm still shocked. I hope this is isn't true! It's alarming, it's strange. Censoring SL is like censoring the internet. Let people decide for themselves?
I am an Aussie and an SL business owner; A ban of SL in Australia would be devastating for me, as I’d lose a source of income. I haven’t actually seen anything mentioned in our local news, but all of these links floating around today are quite alarming.. Time for my government to get with the times, I think!
