There's a new website out there called BanThisURL and you should be telling everyone about it! I am now so don't not once! I don't know everyone!

This is a scary proposition people. Firstly I agree there is some content on the Internet that I wish wasn't there or how an innocent search ends up not so innocent. Great lets whack a filter on the content and she'll be right mate! Maybe the paranoid persona comes out when it appears that the government is doing wrong veiled by good deeds or high ideals. Two things you can do and tell your not-so-geeky friends too. Get a copy of the book "1984" and then set your mp3 player to Rage Against the Machine's self titled album and in particular listen to "Take the Power Back".

I could talk about this for ages but from reading the articles on BanThisURL they say what I feel and the previous paragraph is my two cents worth.

You win! I ROCK!
Good night Seattle.


  1. This Blog has been having a go at Conroy and his terrible ideas every couple of weeks.

  2. Good, I'm not saying I agree with everything the Green's have said but on this I do. I can't help but really think back through 1984 and wonder, could this happen? Could they filter what we read? For some, Internet news is their _only_ source of news. If we cannot look down that path and figure out where it leads then we are all doomed.

    Lucky there are a significant number of people who will fight for this, maybe even Half Life 2 styles if need be :P

    Don't forget the march on Dec 13. I have a work thing on so unfortunately I cannot make it due to work.

    No-one likes a square Internet.

  3. If I want to spend my weekends looking at old men pooing on each other that's my right I say.

  4. nice work matteh...trying to tub girl it up...but it didn't work...why is it so?

  5. They should ban the url for banthisurl and then they would get sucked into a recursive death spiral. yay.
