News began leaking out over the past several days of websites appearing as part of a 2000 plus "blacklist" aimed at blocking out child pornography and beastiality: Among them, online poker portals, YouTube links and even a dentist's business site.  Of course, none of the aforementioned websites have any connection to depraved behaviour.   And now the "dentist inclusion gaffe" is being blamed on none other than the Russian Mob.   о действительно?

Australian Communications Minister, Stephen Conroy, claimed the "Russian mob" had targeted small businesses and published questionable content on their websites, including the dentist's site.  But the dentist in question claimed he cleaned up his website and moved it to a different host years ago.  It remained on the blacklist.

"I don't actually have a problem with trying to combat the Russian mob putting material that would be refused classification and trying to publicise it worldwide," Senator Conroy said.

The Communication Director has been accused of trying to block political content as well, something he has flatly denied.

"When he wasn't blaming the Russian Mob, the Minister was still invoking hateful, extreme content and protesting that they don't intend to censor 'political' content," Colin Jacobs, spokesman for the online users' lobby group Electronic Frontiers Australia, told the Sydney Morning Herald.
