Sorry to ask this, but is this related somehow to this:


On the other side of the spectrum, people overseas ask why so many 
are being made about the running of the Internet here.

Sorry if I'm not drinking the political cool-aid, but complain a lot 
and get
a free trip to Bali - unless I'm missing something isn't really at all 
Australia's Trade Interests a single bit.

Does the public really need 'more' governance given everything on the 
is already being monitored by govt departments anyway? Does lecturing 
countries really help our international standing?
