Poll Shows NZers Against Internet Censorship

Stuff is running a poll about Internet censorship next to an article about the Australian plans to censor the Internet. While online polls aren’t very statistically valid, I was still heartened to see the results:

Should New Zealand censor the internet?

  • 13% – Yes, just like we censor films & TV.
  • 61% – No, it’s against free speech.
  • 26% – No, it’s a waste of money.

A total of 87% of the 1964 people who voted were opposed to Internet censorship.
