I guess they decided to give in to India after all...
There's always shit like this going on, it seems. Is teh internets fucked?
Pretty much. Control freaks will always seek control, and attain it as long as we let them.
I have a feeling that India's quick effort to censor their net has everything to do with the so called "Arab Spring."
Countries the world over are starting to realize that internet, not TV or print media, is the most effective vector for social control and propaganda.
I find it amusing that all this struggle and protest for sopa, pipa, and acta have resulted to nothing. The people never will nor have a right to anything that cannot be made money off of . Even the right to liberate or share an opinion will eventually set you in jail . Sure these are small things but it'll amount to more sooner or later.
It's sad really, might as well just be an audience to the demise of America and other societies being taken advantage of.
getting nervous are we?
Google gave in to China to, so this wouldn't be surprise. Google was big fish in a little pond, now it has to deal with the real world.
Thanks for fucking up on posting a completely irrelevant post in hopes of derailing a thread so early in it's life
But India? They have problem with the commie terrorists that are exploiting the huge problems in indian society, yes. But is an indian spring really in the cards?
Censor the +1 button
If you had any idea how backwards paranoid eastern nations are then you'd really be surprised. You have to understand that most of those people only get a limited amount of news and any leak of information that could hurt the current seat of power is no-no.
Hunger is a great motivator.
Considering i've been googling allot of political shit lately, i am.
Also i've googled ALLOT i mean a fucking SHIT TON of racist shit.
Well that is better than censorship all the internet.
So is this a political thing or will they censor @rapehitler and @loverpony too ? :<
Maybe, maybe not. Suffice to say that the government is worried about it, which may be enough to cause a tipping point.
As I understand it, they have been having problems with the Kashmir area for as long as it has existed, ~75 percent of the population lives on less than $2US a day, and the Muslims and Hindus don't get along. Without taking bold steps (such as the OP points out) to prevent social decent into rebellion, India is fucked.
Shrigley the pro-PRC Wikipedian is making Wikipedia's Censorship of Twitter article more PRC-friendly / censorship-friendly.
Wow, you guys are stupid. You guys sit here, and let these little blogposts stir you to liberal outrage, which is another form of conformity. Free expression is doing just fine. Since when was google and twitter the entirety of free expression? Are you so neck bearded that you don't realize there is a big wide world out there.
Seriously, shut the fuck up all you little liberal zombies. You have no individuality, you get angry and whatever you are INSTRUCTED to get angry at. I love how many of you care about what a corporation does to some ass country full of brown people. I suppose next you're gonna demand an end to child labor. Fucking commies.
Good points, all of you!
Hmm... We give the indians free internetz and we cause more havoc than the commies ever could?
Watch our rage...
