At the end of the day, if as has been asserted in numerous emails, the web site was an Internet icon which represented the theory that net citizens had rights and freedoms which they may not have in society generally, then the suspension of represents the natural evolution of that society, cyber or otherwise, in that an abuse of rights and freedoms (outside of the purpose for which that society has mutually agreed to provide those rights and freedoms) can generally be expected to be met with attempts to place reasonable limits on those rights and freedoms by the organisation responsible for providing them in the first place.

discuss, using examples

For additional credit: Why did the creators of this (Not Safe For Work Or Most Homes) website feel obliged to pixellate the young lady in question's genitalia, given that she is, in point of fact, projectile defecating into her own face?

We had the office mr sigerson.

work of genius...

we're just waiting on the christmas special to be shown on regular tv (watched it new years day at noodles on foxtel) so i can discuss how horrifically uncomfortable it made me.

although the entire show does remind me of working at torus

anyways, to do some writing...


Saw that fire at Kembla.

Seven Million liters of ethanol on fire.

Fire crews battled to contain both the fire itself and the hundreds of Italian men trying to throw coffe beans onto the top.

please can you get this bookmark for the studios as I would like to get a job in melbourne as I hear it's nice.
Also, has anyone got Tony White's email addresss?

Yep, tantalus seem to be plodding on okay. I did have a site bookmarked with a huge list of developers/animation studios in victoria, but it got lost between my other bookmarks. One day I will organise them... oh yes.

Instead, please turn your attention to the cat humiliation on this page. Fake furry cat ears for drunken students I can understand, fake furry cat ears for cats...

Like I really needed another internet timewaster dedicated to cult movies, the trivia associated with them, and the people who make them great (Bruce Campbell, take a bow), but lo and behold, the Mutant Reviewers From Hell. Rock on.

Well, if we can't win at the world cup then it's only fair that we get the world's worst serial killer.

Pol, I'm working for AIE, with David Giles and Matt Curtis... I am the "Senior Art Tutor" which basically means I teach 2nd year. It's part time, and I'm using Max... are you still using that too? I may shoot you a few questions... It's part time, except Im there more than normal at the moment, because I"m making up time in lieu from xmas and new year, and I'm also trying to write the curriculum. (gulp) Bizarrely, our campus is on Level 8, 14 Queens Road as infotari shrank. We all spend a lot of our time avoiding the upstairs types.

Hey, has anyone else watched wife swap? (Other than Harry and Liz who told us about it... it's like watching a car crash!

couldn't have happened to a nicer bloke

you know, when a website has a testimonial like this, it's kind of mandatory to give them at least a plug......

I've never seen anything so erotic as these two ladies auscultating each other. I love the differences in their hearts: Anna's is always slow, around 60, not exeeding 142 after exercise, matching her persona: wise, sly, sleepy, sexy in a knowing way. Yvonne's is quicker, more nervous, around 72 at rest, zooming to over 180 after exercise. Her sweet, innocent, madonna-like face while being auscultated, her dark hair spread over the pillow, is a huge turn-on

ladies and gentlemen, the HeartBeatBabes. more sphygmometers than you can poke a stick at. Not Work Safe

Hello....I'm in. It's a bit dark and cold in here. Wait a minute, what's happened to the door? Perhaps if I just walk down this spiral staircase.....

Wow... Pudsey's still there? Hmm, and I suppose people are getting on just fine without me, too, eh?

So, the other day I was trying to be a grown up... I got given a david jones voucher for xmas and thought I'd have a look around on my way home from work. I ended up wondering round the cosmetics department looking at the different stuff, appreciating all the shiny things, until I got to the Guerlain counter, where I realised I had to leave. The reason? Their lipsticks though undoubtedly long lasting and moisturising etc, well, they're kind of packaged like a golden poo.

Hey Eve I was in Pudsey today,it's quite nice.

not melbourne obviously, but nice

Thanks Pol, and many hogs to you too. "Happy Lap" I bin saying to people, 'cause at the end of the day, it's just another lap around the sun, innit.

I tuned in to a taping of the 2003 Edinborough Tattoo tonight, and didn't it make me fair sook on the odd occasion. Question, why do they have it in August? Also, why do they play 'Auld Lang Syne' at the end of it, if it's in August!

For the record I enjoyed particuarly the Swiss "Top Secret" Drum Corps, who proved that even as amateurs they can still do everything better than everyone else can, but only when they want to. And what's a Swiss group doing at a Military Tattoo? I thought they didn't believe in war. Does war have a capital W or not? I can't think. I wonders if they have a web page. Of course they does ... Of course the Yanks were good too, with their rifle-throwing and their bayonets and what-not. But the Swiss, they at least had a good time while they were doing it!

NYE reports please everyone. I rode in, had drinks with oobles, went to 'Belfast', rode home, went to bed. TEH END
