Why are you talking about politics?

Don't you clearly state in your own words that this is not the place? So, Chipp, is it or isn't it?

Are your forum readers mature enough to handle REAL discussion on this forum or not?

How long until Australians get fed up with their facist government and revolt? Not speaking specifically about this incident, but all the censorship those poor guys have to deal with

I, for one, was under the impression that this issue will directly effect the entire internet if implemented worldwide. I dont see why such things cant be discussed, so long as it stays on topic, which it has.

They can block P2P but if you add encryption to it, it's no longer blockable

lol you'll find that most settled countries outside of europe are illegal immigrant settlements, where the natives had their land invaded and taken over, and later claimed from them.

Australian Censorship sucks...that's all I can say, way to (attempt to) restrict people's rights...

But anything in Australia cost more in AUD than in the US, a GTX 280 is like less than $400 here, but for you guys its like.... $500++
