Default Swearing Fines

Is this not over the top?!

I know there are forum rules about what you can and cannot say and what you can discuss (eg. politics)...but I think this is absolutely ridiculous.

http://www.theage.com.au/victoria/bi...530-1fctb.html

What about movies?...they are shown to members of the public and many of them have swear words - I know they have classifications but seriously?!

Are there any police officers that would really fine you for swearing?...cops are people too...

What kind of lawmakers even made this in the first place?

I think there are better things governments could do, like not getting involved in what I have to say (whether it does or does not offend anyone).

Victoria is the nanny state.
