Seriously, no.

Sorry, but this is a very important Proclamation of Doom, and thus had to be posted ASAP.  The Australian Federal Government is apparently quite serious about a proposal to requires all Internet Service Providers to store precise data on what their subscribers are doing online.

“The Federal Government has confirmed it is considering a policy requiring Australian internet providers to retain precise data on how their users are using the internet, with the potential to include information on emails sent and — reportedly — their web browsing history.”

Seriously, this has to stop.  I’m proposing we march on Parliament and bring some justice to bear on these morons who are messing with the fabric of Australia’s T&T industry and, by all accounts, the right to privacy of basically all the Netizens in the country.

With the stupid Firewall proposal, we’re already a laughing stock but this is beyond the pale.
