The Fake Stephen Conroy website at stephenconroy.com.au that Crikey mentioned on Friday lasted just two days. At 5pm AEDT Friday it was taken offline by .au Domain Administration Ltd (auDA), the industry self-regulatory body for Australian internet domains, who deleted the domain with less than three hours notice.

The site’s content, including the header "Stephen Conroy: Minister for Fascism", is now online at stephen-conroy.com instead, where auDA has no jurisdiction -- although it’s hosted in the same location.
