However, the spokeswoman claimed the company's revenues from international "audiotex" traffic - which includes premium sex chat lines, horoscopes, and stock quotes - had decreased by more than 90 per cent since 2001.

Gee ... could people be getting wise to the money they're wasting? Nah. Couldn't be.

Lawyers for the telco and Gibraltar-based porn merchant Gilsan were in the NSW Supreme Court this week to determine both parties' claims for payment.

Is that the top level court for porn disputes?

/Looked like Not Safe for Work Supreme Court to me

Man those Australians are crazy. Brains must get fuzzy living up in the Alps and all wiht all that snow. Makes you wonder.

I think this is for those long distance dialing programs that dumbasses get suckered into running for "free" porn.

NSFW in NSW?
 
2004-12-20 02:54:11 PM
This used to be a fairly common practice:

1) find a small country where the locals residents call OUT from but noone bothers to call IN (like the pacific island of Vanuatu.) - this creates a gap in the inbound/outbound phone traffic.

2) setup some porn servers with modems in the small country.

3) get people to download and run auto-dialing apps that dial into the porn server modems.

4) get a cut of the long distance charges!

Disparaging the boot is a bootable offense!

There is porn on th Pacific island of Vanuatu? Wasn't that the location of last season of Survivor?
 
2004-12-20 03:37:42 PM
I like the breathless way the author of the article describes the company as being part of the "international porn trade." Big friggin' deal. What's wrong with porn?
 
2004-12-20 03:44:55 PM
How much of the bill belongs to Pete Townsend?
 
2004-12-20 04:13:10 PM
I also read that as the "NSFW Supreme Court."
 
2004-12-20 04:54:41 PM
"13 million dollary-doos!? TOBIAS! Did you make all these porn calls to the States??"

Vanuatu encompasses several islands I think, survivor was on some obscure one, check travel listings on vanuatu and there are some tours that take you to the spots where survivor was filmed.

The porn stuff sounds like the scam programs that offer free porn, the catch is you must install the program and have it dial who knows what number to who knows where and you get your free porn. Infact I remember of hearing about a virus that did something similar dialed a number in Moldova and the telco their got a slice of the action.
