Australia Abandons Mandatory Internet Filter Plan

Well, at least this wasn't a complete waste of time and resources. Oh wait, yes it was. eek!

Communications Minister Stephen Conroy told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio on Friday that instead of imposing a compulsory filter, Internet service providers have agreed to block a list of 1,400 websites.
