More on the ACMA censorship of political content

The Register has a good piece here. They note that this means that even linking to content rather than having it is sufficient to attract the $11,000/day fine, and ask how many hops are sufficient to be OK. If I link to a site that links to a site that links to the offending (in this case anti-abortion) site, am I liable? This gets more fucking ridiculous by the day.

What I'm still unsure of: do these "link-deletion notices" still have effect if you post the text of the url (without the link)? Amongst being one of the stupidest ideas of this century, ACMA and the Ruddites have shown through their own actions that it is totally unenforceable.
