    On a related issue I use my blog and youtube to campaign against Mercy Ministries abuse of their mentally ill clients. The internet has and continues to facilitate the campaign of Mercy Survivors, now while I am only a part of an international team my work is significant. If the filter had been brought in say a year ago there is a very significant chance that reduction in service would have reduced my internet usage to a negligable level
    I would not have come across the original story of Mercy abuses, I would not have been able to network with Mercy Survivors or use oovoo or skype to run conferences, I sure as heck wouldn’t be using youtube and posting videos.

    The federal government currently blocks access to discovered child porn sites, this is achieved through human intelligence gathering, infiltration of child porn networks, and reporting by concerned members of the public. Spend another 40 million bolstering this area and you will see improvements in protection of children.
