I have written many times about internet censorship, but in case you have not heard – censorship is a bad idea.

The Australian Federal Government is about to introduce mandatory internet filtering. If implemented it will make Australia the most heavily censored country in the western world. They’ve told us it’s to protect the kids but the truth is it doesn’t. By telling your mum the facts you will help her realise that if she really wants to protect kids online mandatory filtering isn’t the answer.

To learn more – and to find out how best to explain to your mum just why internet censorship is such a problem (and no it won’t stop child pornography), take a look at the It’s Time to Tell Mum website. It’s in all our interests.
