I refer to the complaint that you lodged with the Australian Broadcasting Authority (ABA) on 20 January 2000 about certain Internet content, namely: a message with subject 'Agony in Pink 3 (4/5) - F/f, non-cons, extreme torture, bondage, rape' posted to the newsgroup alt.sex.stories on 6 December 1998 by firstname.lastname@example.org. The ABA has investigated your complaint. The Classification Board has classified the Internet content RC in accordance with 1 (a) of the Films Table of the National Classification Code. The ABA is satisifed that the Internet content is hosted outside Australia. In accordance with the Internet Industry Association code of practice for dealing with such content (http://www.iia.net.au/index2.html), the content has been referred to to the makers of approved filters listed in the code of practice, for their attention and appropriate action. Thank you for bringing this matter to the ABA's attention.
