Editor's note:  WHEN THIS COMES TO OTHER COUNTRIES, (VERY) SOON, IT WILL BE TOO LATE TO USE THE INTERNET TO SPREAD THE WORD. They know that most people are investigating the new world order from the privacy of their own homes, and the elite are so pathetic and blatant, they have to cheat, and CENSOR THE INTERNET! This is VERY concerning. People have laughed, ridiculed, and have ignored significantly serious information that affects us ALL on every level. ... Don't you think it's about time to take China, & now Australia as a model, like a tiger running at you to get your primative urges up and running to do something about this? The misconception that the internet could not possibly be cencored has been shattered. - Their lies are scattered all over the floor. - Pick them up, and use the proof to blow the roof off of the tyranny and injustice that is threatening your life. If we continue thinking that we cannot make a difference, then we won't try.

The Australian communications regulator says it will fine people who hyperlink to sites on its blacklist, which has been further expanded to include several pages on the anonymous whistleblower site Wikileaks.

Wikileaks was added to the blacklist for publishing a leaked document containing Denmark’s list of banned websites.

The move by the Australian Communications and Media Authority comes after it threatened the host of online broadband discussion forum Whirlpool last week with a $11,000-a-day fine over a link published in its forum to another page blacklisted by ACMA - an anti-abortion website.

ACMA’s blacklist does not have a significant impact on web browsing by Australians today but sites contained on it will be blocked for everyone if the Federal Government implements its mandatory internet filtering censorship scheme.

But even without the mandatory censorship scheme, as is evident in the Whirlpool case, ACMA can force sites hosted in Australia to remove “prohibited” pages and even links to prohibited pages.

Online civil liberties campaigners have seized on the move by ACMA as evidence of how casually the regulator adds to its list of blacklisted sites. It also confirmed fears that the scope of the Government’s censorship plan could easily be expanded to encompass sites that are not illegal.

“The first rule of censorship is that you cannot talk about censorship,” Wikileaks said on its website in response to the ACMA ban.
