Poll: Do you support the latest web filtering deal between Telstra, Optus, iPrimus and the Federal Government?

The deal will see the Government's mandatory ISP-level filter postponed for a year, but is it supported by the Australian people?

Last week communications minister, Senator Stephen Conroy, said that up to 70 per cent of Australian will have filtered Internet access as a result of a deal between Telstra, Optus, iPrimus and the Federal Government.

The deal will see ISPs impose web filtering on their customers and the postponement of the Government’s mandatory ISP-level filter for 12 months, but will the Australian people support this deal?

(Let us know what you think in our new poll)

And the results from last week’s poll are now in to the question: Have you ever been hit with a Denial of Service (DoS) attack?

It looks like some of you had some fun of it (we hope our readers don't regularly launch DoS attacks on others ;).

Yes, I get hit all the time: 11%

Yes, but only sporadically: 5%

I've been hit once or twice: 11%

I don't know: 35%

No, I've never been hit: 11%

No, but I frequently launch DoS attacks on others: 27%
