I have been asked by the webmaster of
to ask people if they can still view his excellent website on the afterlife. Apparently people in Australia are reporting that they can no longer see it, although it's visible from the UK and US. Mike O'Hare reported in his blog recently that Australia are about to censor and filter their internet (This is simply something that can not and must not happen). If you know anybody from Australia or any other country, can you get them to test the website address above and report back their findings.
Here's a quote from Mike's forum topic.
Mike's Forum Topic
"The Australian government is set to impose Chinese-style Internet censorship by enforcing a universal national filter that will block websites deemed “controversial” as part of a wider agenda to regulate the Internet, according to free speech advocates.
A provision whereby Internet users could opt out of the filter by contacting their ISP has been stripped from the legislation, meaning the filter will be universal and mandatory. The System Administrators Guild of Australia and Electronic Frontiers Australia have attacked the proposal, saying it will restrict web access, raise prices and slow Internet traffic speeds. The plan was originally created as a way to combat child pornography and adult content, but could be extended to include almost any *“controversial” websites.
The Australian government will no doubt insist that its filter is in the best interests and is only designed to block child pornography, snuff films and other horrors, yet the system is completely pointless because it will not affect file-sharing networks—the medium through which the vast majority of such material is distributed.”
