And besides... having those western legistative ppl... in Australia,

Ugh, since when did this turn into a racist political debate?
Its a rather human trait to lose your temper, and legislators of
eastern countries are just as able to fly off the handle as legislators
in western countries. Not that I consider Australia to be 'The West' -
Australia needs to forge much closer ties to it's asian neighbours, and
needs to start thinking of itself in different terms.
Ah... but if I had not brought this to light, would you have even KNOWN

I believe everyone is in agreement then. Not only are you not

So, there are 2% of the internet using it as opposed to about 0.5%.
Look, this discussion is useless. People using the Osirusoft blackhole
are making a choice to do so. If someone tries to email them
legitimately from a blocked subnet, and the mail doesn't get through,
then thats their choice.
Just because you, or I, don't like the list or the way its run doesn't
mean they shouldn't use it.
