Update 2023-08-21:

My 2023-08-20 submission: Mis-dis-info-bill-Robin-Whittle.pdf criticising the 2023 proposal by the Australian government to censor social media communications of Australians, including any web page which supports comments.  The title of the proposed bill is in its file name:

Exposure Draft Communications Legislation Amendment (Combatting Misinformation and Disinformation) Bill 2023

The information page for this exposure draft of the bill, and its request for comments (which closed on 2023-08-20), is: .

Telecommunications privacy and related issues: telemarketing, a Do-Not-Call registry for Australia, Internet censorship and a systematic review of which matters are most suitable for government regulation or self-regulation. There is a CV describing my background in telecommunications, advocacy, consulting etc. ../robin/cv.html

The Link list is an excellent Australian discussion forum for telecommunications policy issues, especially privacy, censorship and cryptography: .
