A DEATH threat has been made against a vocal opponent of the Federal Government’s web filtering plan in a grim escalation of the already heated debate.
Online rights campaigner Geordie Guy received a threatening phone message last month after publicly disagreeing with an article supporting the filtering scheme.
“I got home from work and found a message on my answering machine telling me to keep my name out of the paper,” he said.
“It said to ‘cut the libertarian bullsh—’ or I’d be sorry.”
