Forgive me but this is from the News.com.au blog.

But here's a Gizmodo link backing it up

Hmm actually the Gizmodo is better, we'll go with that...

Whirlpool forum member Rupple has discovered that on Senator Conroy’s website there’s a little bit of code to make sure that any searches for “ISP filtering” aren’t actually published to the tag cloud of site searches. The filtering has already begun!


Here is the js code:

//Customise the tag-cloud to display what shows up
if (unique[i] == “ISP Filtering")
{
continue;
}


shortly after this they removed the code, as well as the author's name from the top of the javascript:


// Script Authour: Aleks Bochniak
// Modified by: Des Ko
// Modified date: 1/12/2009


Just plain susness.

news.com.au links are pretty fail, here's the actual whirlpool link from last week

http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies.cfm?t=1391908#r1

and the site in question;
http://www.minister.dbcde.gov.au/

I checked out the code on Friday and it was still there, in fact it is still there in it's entirety right now

I hope this guy turns out to be a crossdresser or something so we get to laugh him out of office very easily

can anyone think why they did this? do you think its because of the other great tag walls i've seen where there is one word in like font 214 but the rest are all font 8?

I'd say they didn't tag that because it's the only thing that would show up. Either way who cares? Why would you even be reading his web page except for a laugh.

That and provided a couple of names of people not to hire as web developers. Seriously, tag cloud calculation would probably be better done on the server side without having to send stupid amounts of tags for javascript processing on the client side.

what's fundamentally wrong with sending it to the client side for processing? it's not 56k and 486sx optimised so it would depend on the developer writing the spec for lower powered netbooks and unoptimised javascript processors: none of which are really much to worry about for the kind of people that read at that level

The problem is that it doesn't scale well with the post count.
There's no problem if the post count is in the tens or hundreds as it looks to be, but if post count on that site grew into the thousands or tens of thousands the crap can build up behind the scenes and suddenly you're sending 300K of text down the pipe per hit to show a few dozen words in slightly differing sizes.

Edit: that and you could do sneaky s*** like remove 'ISP Filtering' at the server side and nobody would know...

er wut?

because you don't want people to find out you're filtering your own website .. at some point there's some code that does "select * from list_of_wall_text" and they could have very easily just gone "yep, if ($row['text'] == "ISP-Filtering") { continue; } and we'd never see it

the way they've done it, we know they're trying to restrict information on that particular subject

If youre using Wordpress or any other blogging system or cms to publish you are filtering what you publish regardless. What makes this a cracker is that single keyword removed because it has been inflaming debate while Conroys and his mates push on with NBN and transperant hardware filtering arrangements with ISPs, which gets up the noses of civil libertarians because oh... they need to know they can access absolutely anything in principle and basic freedoms of their human rights.

Something like that anyway, who knows..
