ACMA proven wrong again

    The new internet filtering system in Australia has been found to be blocking
    innocent sites.
    http://www.smh.com.au/news/technology/web/dentist-tuckshop-cited-on-web-
    blacklist/2009/03/19/1237054973414.html

    This article by SMH says that the banlist contains ...
    canteens.com.au (Tuckshop and Canteen Management Consultants)
    dentaldistinction.com.au (a dentist)
    MaroochyBoardingKennels.com.au (kennels)

    Although serious for those affected, false positives like these are just
    a farce for most people. The real concern is that politicians can use
    this system to block sites presenting opinions or facts they don't like.
