Yeah, from what I've heard 3AW sure know how to beat something to death, then flog the horse to make sure. I absolutely agree with you on all points!

The trouble is that one day facebook just decided I couldn't log into my account without first providing them with my home address, phone number and social security number (which doesn't exist in Australia) or driver's licence number - which I naturally refused to do. So I still have a facebook account which I can't delete.

Yes, I was faced with the same problem.
I don't remember anymore how, but in the end I could log in without providing them a copy of my passport (:facepalm and from there on it was relatively straightforward. A mobile phone might have been involved.

They seem to have reached a compromise. I wonder how much the Australians had to concede.

I'll tell you who: 3AW.
I didn't know who that was, so I looked it up.
"Melbourne's favourite news and talk station"

Being curious, I just had to scrape that online stream.
Code:
ffplay https://23163.live.streamtheworld.com/3AWAAC.aac
That plays in the US so I assume it's not GEO restricted.
