Interesting Censorship Incident

I found it interesting that the article I linked to for my Communications Minister Wrong Again! entry yesterday, appears to have been quietly removed from the internet. Here is the exact same link again:

It reveals a completely blank, white page. Clearly it has been taken down by The Age, but the question is – why? Was the paper feeling a little heat on the issue? Were they asked to take it down?

It has also been taken down by other Fairfax group newspapers, the Brisbane Times, and the Sydney Morning Herald.

This is exactly why we are worried about Conroy’s proposed internet filter – because things will happen on the hush. If the filter was already in place, would we have seen this article at all?

UPDATE: Fortunately of course, Google comes to the rescue, having cached the page here.
