Australian Net Censorship Plan Delayed Temporarily

from the getting-censorship-ducks-in-a-row dept

There's been plenty of protests against Australia's latest plan to censor the internet, but it appears that the reason the filtering plan has been delayed yet again has little to do with tone deaf government officials suddenly having second thoughts -- but much more to do with the government's own inability to get its censorship act together in time. The whole process has been a bit of a mess from the beginning, so no surprise that the government would screw up its own launch efforts as well.

    If they cant do this on time, what to expect?

    They cant even censor the internet as they planned, what will it happen once they have everything in place?

    One can only expect wrongly blocked sites while the real porn is still out there.
