Yes, I'm interested to know that too. When I first heard about it, I thought
the "iSEEK" search engine was some kind of clever protest against the
censorship legislation, ie. an example of how bad things *could* turn out if
the legislation was passed. Now that I'm starting to believe it's for real,
I'm completely astonished. That list of blocked dictionary words is so scary
that it's funny.
How about turning the ProgSoc website black in protest, in solidarity with
EFA? I realise ProgSoc isn't by nature a political organisation, and I
understand if it can't be done for that reason. But this is kind of an
important issue, and changing the site's colour couldn't really hurt
program /n./ 1. A magic spell cast over a computer allowing it to turn one's
input into error messages. (Jargon File 4.0.0)
