Speaking of that, again...

The Minister for Communications will be on ABC's Q and A this Thursday
evening at 9:30 (with the episode downloadable sometime afterwards).
Questions under 80 words can be submitted on the website.


At least one of his fellow panellists has publicly stated their opinion
on the filtering issue.


Hopefully there will be some healthy discussion about it.
