Standards

I have an interesting observation. If the Australian Classification Board or the Australian Communications and Media Authority tell me that something might offend me… well, they’ve got a 100% miss-rate so far.

On the other hand, if I want to be offended, I just have to watch a commercial-break on television or (in a pinch) go out and look at a few billboards. You know, those things that they’ve generally okayed as being acceptable.

Seems to me that they have a very low success-rate in determining what will and won’t offend or insult me in electronic and broadcast media.

So, why then, should I think that the ACMA will make an effective determination of what I and millions of other Australians might or might not find to be offensive online when they’re already getting it wrong?
