Sounds like some democracy is not so good on the freedom of speech part of human rights...
 
2012-03-13 12:35:38 PM  
And how would they enforce this jail time?

Lol.. What kind of backwards pisswater third world country would try to censor the web for content they don't like?

Simpe solution: block BGP4 routes for countries that criminalize unpopular content. Let them buid their own redundant international network of restricted content.
 
2012-03-13 12:37:33 PM  
Simple solution: Make Facebook unavailable to Indians.

What's the point? Do Facebook or Google have an Indian assets to seize?
 
2012-03-13 12:37:56 PM  
Holy cow, that's stupid.

Would a cow goatse qualify as blaspheme?

Cause i can shop one!!!!

Blasphemy laws are proof positive that the future is not evenly distributed.

There's just one problem with your suggestion: $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

It trumps freedom every time. Facebook and Google will gladly play along with these countries denying freedom to their citizens as long as the cash keeps pouring in.

Why are we worried about a theocracy getting nuclear weapons when we already have India?

Disclaimer: I'm a huge opponent of censorship so when I say this please understand that it's partially tongue-in-cheek as I do not actually think this way:

I'm totally ok with the Indian government destroying Facebook. fark Zuckerberg, fark Facebook. I'm ok with this.
 
2012-03-13 12:59:53 PM  
America has no problem requesting and getting peope extradited even though they live in a foreign country and ain't breaking any of their countries laws, if there is justice in the world Mark Zuckawhateverhisnameis should be extradited and rot in a Indians prision. Fairs fair.
 
2012-03-13 01:04:40 PM  
C'mon India, you're better than this. You can't expect to be regarded as a major world power and get all prison-ey when someone offends your sacred cow. For a people who invented the concept of zero, they seem to have about the same amount of common sense when it comes to the internet.
 
2012-03-13 01:06:37 PM  
Dear Thin-Skinned Religious Types,

Fark off.

I like can India can simultaneously be a "developed country" and a "third world country" all at the same time.

Seriously how many days passes on Fark when we don't see a good crowds of people getting trampled in India story...or a "bone factory" or some such. Why would people voluntarily go there on vacation?

Kill Facebook. Kill it dead.

It has done more to divide people and drive them to hate their fellow man than anything else besides religion.

Funny, I had a hot, steaming cup of blasphemy just this morning.
 
2012-03-13 01:21:45 PM  
So I think it's time to have a photoshop/twitter contest where we put as many religious and political Indian figureheads as possible in suggestive scenes with cows and other animals, but just mostly cows.
 
2012-03-13 01:21:51 PM  
I came here to make an India pun, but... I don't really know anything about India.

Curry on then.

I worked in a corporate law firm in New Delhi this last summer. I tried to tell the lead partner that the 2011 amendments to India's Information Technology Act of 2006 would put website owners at risk of being liable for content created by their users and published on their site. Nobody listened; could have saved a shiat ton of legal costs.

/Cool story, bro.
//On a positive note, India is pretty cool.
 
2012-03-13 01:30:47 PM  
I'm good with that.

/Not for that reason.
 
2012-03-13 01:30:54 PM  
India is probably trying to slow the growth of FB so they have time to come up with their own FB knock-off.

/like China

I was wondering what the heck would Canada censor...

A few minutes of searching and I found it... known "child pornography" sites.

cue the "I'm ok with it" image.

Cut them off of Facebook. Will instantly reduce the viruses and hacking that occurs on FB.

If you don't like the internet, or the 21st Century, please feel free to unplug.

They also censor things like the works of George Hayduke and most of the stuff from Paladin Press. They do practice a bit of thought control, but that's made up for with beer.
