Porn News Blacklisted?

[]- One of Australia’s largest owned and operated adult websites,, is included on a list alleged to be the ACMA blacklist of prohibited websites.

Also banned is the, one of the web’s longest running and most visited free adult link directories.

Although AbbyWinters is hosted overseas and accessible now, it would be blocked to all Australian Internet users if mandatory ISP filtering is introduced.

AbbyWinters, which is owned by Victorian company GMBill, complies with 18 U.S.C. 2257 Record-Keeping Requirements, meaning all models are over 18 years of age. In my opinion most of the material on the site would be rated no higher than X18+, which is legal to purchase and view in Australia.

Another GMBill website,, is also included on the list.

Given that the list is secret and that there is no formal appeals process, GMBill would have likely found out about the inclusion of their websites after they were potentially blocked to the entire Australian adult population. The equivalent of arriving at your place of business one morning to find Kevin Rudd has chained the door and boarded the windows. Not something I’d call good management of the economy.
