Anonymous defends a mans best friend, REDTUBE <3

Towards the end of 2009 after several Governments began blocking access to Anonymous imageboards, like Germany’s blacklisting of Krautchan.net, Anonymous reawakened its war against Censorship.

In the past Australia has been notorious for its censorship laws, games like Manhunt and even Left for Dead 2 have been refused classification, rulings such as the MA15+ are considered to be too strict.

But the Australian Government opened Pandora’s Box after the ACMA (The Australian Communications and Media Authority) following an investigation ISP based internet filtering, confirmed in December that they would proceed with broad scale internet censorship.

The ACMA had caused controversy before when a blacklist of proposed banned websites was leaked by Wikileaks, global whistle-blowers responsible for the leak of Thailand, Denmark and Norway’s blacklists.

Although censorship was argued to protect; the list contained online Poker sites, Youtube links, alternative religion and Christian sites, Wikipedia and Wikileaks pages and entries; even the website of a Queensland dentist.

Spearheaded by Stephen Conroy, Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy and deputy leader of the Government in Senate of the – at the time – Rudd Ministry.

Senator Conroy said “Under existing laws the ACMA blacklist includes URLs relating to child sexual abuse, rape, incest, bestiality, sexual violence and detailed instruction in crime,”

But child porn is already illegal to view and host anyway, is it not Steve?

Colin Jacobs, spokesmen for the Electronic Frontiers Australia, said “The list itself should concern every Australian – although plenty of the material is unsavory or even illegal, the presence of sites like YouTube, MySpace, gambling or even Christian sites on the list raises a lot of questions.”

The ACMA afterward banned pornography featuring female ejaculation and woman featured with small breasts. Unfortunately what that meant for Australian lads, no more cover shots featuring the likes of Kristen Bell, Kate Hudson and Nicole Richie. How could there be squares like this down under?

As you can understand, this upset Anonymous and the male population?

Not to mention the effect it will have on marriages when men might have to actually attempt sexual fantasies with their spouse.

February 10, 2010, Operation Titstorm began; a user named ‘Pulsar’ on the 2nd posted the idea to fight back; claiming Australia could be the first to fall in a global censored internet.

Anonymous focused their famous distributed denial of services on all of Australia’s government servers, bombarding it with simultaneous requests for information. They succeeded in bringing down the servers, which included the Australian Parliament House site for three days, nearly the Department of Communications and they defaced the PM’s website, re-badging it Operation Titstorm: A part of Operation Internet Freedom.

It was said 7.5 million requests a second caused the crashes and the Cyber Security Operations Center knew the attack was coming but was unable to stop it.

A mass combination of spam prank calls, black faxes and emails featuring small breasted woman were spammed through Government services. Personally, if it featured small breasted woman like Keira Knightly at all, I envy that day at the office.

Hours before the attack they uploaded a personal message on YouTube to Kevin Rudd and Seven News presenting a list of demands.

Although Alastair McGibbon, cyber-crime consultant and former Australian Federal Police agent compared the attacks as an equivalent of an “electronic poke in the eye”, the horns been blown and the people are empowered.

Carry on censoring, carry on war.
