The request was successful.
From: G King
Dear Australian Communications and Media Authority,
I hereby request a count/tally of "link-deletion" notices issued by the ACMA from 2007 through to present. Please provide separate figures for interim versus final notices.
To be clear, I am not requesting access to details of the offensive content, rather numbers around the frequency of notices issued.
