Suspended service, direct debit

Hi there I'm resorting to posting here on a friends computer as my connection has been suspended despite my bank account having been debited the full amount for the month... I've written emails to billing address and have had no response.. Can someone please look into this?! [Exetel Billing #2690726...

Re: Content Filtering Trial

Who decides what content is to be blocked? It is immaterial - it's a trial of a concept not a trial of censorship. If you get a site blocked then let us know - in the mean time stop posting in this thread and get on with things that are useful to you. You, many tens of thousands of other Exetel use...

Re: Content Filtering Trial

What exactly is going to be blocked? According to Steve's blog there is a mention of 198 IP addresses so far. But what does that mean? How many webpages per IP address, how many domains or URLs? Will the list of 198 IPs expand at any point? Who decides what content is to be blocked? What type of con...

Re: Content Filtering Trial

Few questions: What exactly is going to be blocked? According to Steve's blog there is a mention of 198 IP addresses so far. But what does that mean? How many webpages per IP address, how many domains or URLs? Will the list of 198 IPs expand at any point? Who decides what content is to be blocked? W...

Re: Mandatory content filtering. Internet Censorship and the ISP

This is a glimmer of hope: iiNet pulls out of net censorship trials Australia's third largest internet provider, iiNet, has withdrawn from the Government's internet censorship trials, saying it could not "reconcile participation in the trial with our corporate social responsibility". The move comes ...

Re: Mandatory content filtering. Internet Censorship and the ISP

The initial round of ISPs are Primus Telecommunications, Tech 2U, Webshield, OMNIconnect, Netforce and Highway 1. Customers of participating ISPs will be able to choose whether they want to be included in the pilot trial (note: all WebShield customers already receive a filtered service). Senator Lu...

Hmm ... a logical counterargument suddenly becomes 'a waste of breath'? :cry:

Oh well; if you wish to continue our discussion, ill_never_tell, please feel free to 'pm' me, as CoreyPlover suggested.

Re: Mandatory content filtering. Internet Censorship and the ISP

And so that leads me to grom: I kindly ask that you confirm some things with me first: Do you support internet censorship? If not, why do you then support Exetel participating in the trial when the trial is censorship? I won't answer either of these questions unless it becomes evident to me that th...

Re: Mandatory content filtering. Internet Censorship and the ISP

I find it unbelievable that we have reached the point of threatening censorship when this is precisely what I thought we were...

Re: Mandatory content filtering. Internet Censorship and the ISP

I am always loathe to close a thread and thereby end a discussion, but when the discussion starts to become dominated by one person, repetitive, and verging on tedious, I will seriously consider closing the thread ... Please give it a break. You're quite welcome to close the thread. It would be a n...

Re: Mandatory content filtering. Internet Censorship and the ISP

Flogging a dead horse is right... Exetel is a private business, not a democracy, so get over it and go hound your local MP instead. I have written to my local MP, twice to Mr Conroy and even to the Prime Minister. Senator Conroy has still not responded, as with the PM. Any other cheeky advice? At t...

Re: Mandatory content filtering. Internet Censorship and the ISP

ill_never_try, perhaps you could please stop flogging your dead horse now? For better or worse, Exetel has lodged a submission to participate in the trial. This decision was made for a slew of reasons, many of which have been listed, many of which won't have been. This is exactly what I'm trying to...

Re: Mandatory content filtering. Internet Censorship and the ISP

... do you really think he wants to throw it all away? Not sure what you mean. Simply refusing to participate in the voluntary trial will have no effect at all in terms of money and assets. There is no penalty for withdrawing or refusing to participate. It is a voluntary trial. If anything, the eff...

Re: Mandatory content filtering. Internet Censorship and the ISP

You must allow me to believe that my carefully considered reasoning is correct - irrespective of whether or not you don't agree with it. I value and respect your opinions. You are free do believe whatever you want, as is anyone. This is not the issue though. The issue is that your "carefully consid...
