    I can understand the thinking, but not sure how it would be implemented. I assume this would be aimed at social platforms.

    They’ll get ISP’s to do it. They’ll be hanging this over Facebook’s head.

    I remember when Telstra disgracefully blocked caseydonovan.com years ago and redirected it to their own site because they (Telstra) accidentally promoted a gay porn site in newspaper ads instead of the .com.au version.
