An anonymous reader writes “Communications Minister Stephen Conroy, the minister attempting to ram the great firewall of Oz down everyone’s throat has been removing all traces of the unpopular legislation from his main website with a javascript filter. From the article:’It was revealed today a script within the minister’s homepage deliberately removes references to internet filtering from the list. In the function that creates the list, or “tag cloud,” there is a condition that if the words “ISP filtering” appear they should be skipped and not displayed.’ Bear in mind, this is the same minister that tried to get the ISP of tech forum Whirlpool to pull the site after users there posted a response email from the ACMA (Australian Communications and Media Authority).”
