    Out of curiosity, what makes you think this is a good idea? All it will do is annoy people until the protocols are updated to work around whatever block is in place (hours most likely, weeks at absolute most). There are also plenty of legal uses of P2P that will be hit by this.

    Whatever planet Conroy is on, he's dreaming if he thinks this will help stop people accessing either pirated material or pornography (pornography appears to be his main arguing point).

    I agree with Erayd, there are people and companies using P2P for legal purposes.
    And it won't stop the illegal users as they will find ways to get around it so it will be the legitiment users that lose out again.

    I also agree with Erayd. Just seems like another costly layer of officialdom that we'll have to pay for and provides us nothing.

    It will be the same old story - the people using P2P for legit purposes, will suffer because of the people using P2P for illegal activity's.

    Theres the problem - trying to filter out the legit users from illegal users downloading pirated movies / Music / Software, and no matter what is done, some one will figure out away around any restrictions imposed by the ISP's.

    I smell a taint of North Korea and China here. How the Aussies put up with this I don't know. Absolute bollocks!
