Is it finally time to censor the web ? The Australian PM is under fire for planning a crackdown on internet porn. But is she right?

If you know where to look, the internet can be a pretty repulsive place. From gross-out amateur movies such as the infamous Two Girls, One Cup -- please, please don't ask us to explain -- to fetish websites where you can watch people having carnal relations with the sort of industrial machinery you'd normally need a safety certificate and hard hat to even switch on, there's a bottomless well of depravity out there.
Not surprisingly, some have started to wonder whether it's time we yelled 'stop'. In Australia, one of the world's most liberal countries, a campaign is under way to 'filter' web searches so that material such as child sex abuse, rape, drug use and bestiality is blocked.
