Everyone should be able to decide what do they want to see/say.
edit: is there any point in filtering paedophile sites? if they found them, they'll probably catch the guys behind them anyway, i find it kinda silly "hey let's block the site and do nothing about it "

"Who decides what material is "appropriate" for Australians to see?"
How can Australian police do anything about the child porn website when they are hosted in different countries?
Thats why i won't support the filer, because they havent told us who decides what material is appropriate and which is not.
Also the current government might have good intentions, but a future government might abuse it.
