In case you aren't aware, Australia has now started to censor the Hip Forums. There is a new program underway that is blocking more than 10,000 websites, including this one. This is probably due to the fact that we discuss DRUGS here! horrors! There is no Free Speech provision in Australian law so they can censor the Internet, TV, and books all they want, and they certainly do! In Queensland it's illegal to sell any books referring to marijuana, including grow books. Another website I work on, icmag.com is likewise banned in Australia. So if you have ANY illusions that Australia is some kind of "Free Country", get real! For more info read this article about Internet Censorship in Australia... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_censorship_in_Australia If you are an Australian and cannot access this site, you can use a proxy to get around their censorship. So you can see just how effective their efforts are... So much for this new Labor government being liberal... yeah right.
