1 Did you need someone to report you to the canary authorities?

3 New legislation just passed in Australia requiring ISPs (and possibly other internet companies) to retain metadata relating to customer activities so that the government can spy on people.

One new thing is that it specifically forbids "warrant canaries".  Other legislation has had gag laws, but the way people got around that was to display text stating that they hadn't been served with a warrant - and remove that text once they were.  The canary in the coal mine.

So if that's forbidden, you need a warrant canary canary.

It's all idiocy anyway.
