Um, the President of Linux Australia has just handed those promoting censorship
a huge hug by characterising the ACMA Prohibited Content list as "child
pornography". Not encouraging.

For the record, about half of the list of ACMA Prohibited Content appears
to be OFLC Refused Classification material.  A few items look like they
are G rated (especially the dentist!).  More worryingly, a fair bit of the
list seems to be inspired by the work of anti-this or pro-that lobby groups.
