Please sir, no clean feed.

Letters to Aussie MPs - No Clean Feed Please.So, this clean feed thing...

If you think it's a silly idea, as I do, I'd urge you to write a letter to Minister Conroy and tell him so.

My letter - http://www.cc.com.au/nocleanfeed
Here's some examples of other people's letters:
  Lev Lafayette - http://levlafayette.com/node/6
  James Turnbull - http://www.kartar.net/no-clean-feed
  Peter Lieverdink - http://cafuego.net/2008/10/23/clean-feed-nonsense

The EFA's website has a good template on it too - http://nocleanfeed.com/takeaction.html

Blog your letter, and add a link to your letter in the comments.

Send a copy to your local MP, the leader of the opposition, Malcolm Turnbull, and the leader of the Australian Greens, Bob Brown, consider also sending a copy to a media outlet.
[Edit. I did -  Thanks Rodney!  - http://www.techworld.com.au/node/264978]

Some other articles and commentary on the issue...

Audio Interview with Mark Newton, network engineer for Internode, My ISP. He's expressing his own views, not those of his employer.  Mark also features in this article in this morning's SMH - Filtering out the fury: how government tried to gag web censor critics

As Mark says "Write a real letter, print it on real paper, sign it with a real pen, put it in a real envelope with a real stamp and post it in a real letter box."
