The Null Device

A SMH piece at The Australian governments' attempt to censor the Internet, and the uniquely Australian wowserism that it stems from:
No-one censors quite like us. The general rule in Australia is that each new communications technology as it comes along - especially cable television and video games - is allowed to operate only on condition that it sticks to material suitable for children.
Essentially, Canberra does not see that the Internet in Australia has much of a future as a forum for adults.

A wowserism? Sounds like something Inspecter Gadget might say. Is it similar to american purtinism?

For a country founded by convicts you guys sure are uptight.
