US internet filter

Even though the government (just barely) got back in, the Australian internet filter is effectively dead in the water because only a minority in either house actually support it. (I'm sure Stephen Conroy will work this out too when he finishes his course in remedial maths.) Not so in the US. So what was that about how this could never happen in America?

Passing that would be a very bad political move. Even if it does pass, it will be overturned by appeal very easily, especially once individual US citizens realize that it affects them and start speaking out. I suspect that most internet users would notice a change in what's available online after implementation, and a massive outcry would follow.

Still, the lack of media coverage on the subject is scary. Time to tweet about it!
