With all due respect, Bevan:
What law makes it illegal to link to something just because it happens
be on the banned list?
For that matter, what law makes it illegal to repost actual content
happens to be on the banned list?
The ACMA's prohibited content list is not a list of illegal content,
it's a list
of content which the ACMA, by legislation, has determined to be
for children. That's what "prohibited content" means.
I can understand it if you're feeling edgy about maybe running afoul
law you don't understand. If that's the case, then say that; there's
to assert that discussing and linking Wikileaks.org has suddenly become
illegal when it manifestly hasn't. If the ACMA wants you to take it
they'll send a link deletion notice. Until you get one of them, there
basis to assume that discussion, reference and linkage is off-limits.
