So, I just found out that one of my favorite websites, fmylife.com, has now been censored by the government (I live in the UAE), so does anyone else in the Pit have any experiences like mine, or do you all live in enlightened liberal societies, unlike mine?

My country doesn't censor sites I try to access. My high school did using the Barracuda system, that made me rage so hard when a research based site was blocked

no, ironically, the site was about abolishing censorship, and the reason for blocking it, it said was "tasteless and offensive"

Your country does, it just tends to be sites for illegal stuff.


I think not, just about EVERYTHING that is offensive to Islam or the gevernment is censored. Porn, Youtube videos, Some Christian websites, etcetera etcetera.

You people are friggin' lucky to have actual rights.

I hear Ultra Surf gets past the Chinese firewall pretty well so it might work for you.

Yeah, Ultra Surf kinda works, I like using Tor, but what really pisses me off is that the Government is so frigging 'moral' with the Internet, but when it comes to basic stuff such as workers rights and all that, they don't give two shits.

You mean the one about copyright infringement or is there something else I should be worrying about?

The copyright one allows the government to basically censor whatever they see fit. You should be very worried about that one alone.

Yea, I don't mind if the US government is trying to crack down on piracy, but that bill is going too far

We just love to come up with drastic, massive, inefficient solutions to specific problems. It's exactly like how some Republicans wanted to deal with immigration by repealing the 14th Amendment :/.

So last year, I put some potatoes in this jar and forgot about them. Today, I found them, and when I opened the jar, there is a puddle at the bottom and it smells like alcohol. If I drink this, do you think I will die, or have I made potato vodka?

Yes, we have a PERMANENT Republican Party, except without the guns and all that.

No guns is a step up in my book, but a permanent Rpublican Party?...

Well your government is in bed with our Republicans, right? The way most people describe it, your government and our Republicans constantly conspire to screw the working class on both sides of the globe.

And I don't hate all people in the Republican party either, I just hate the party in general. Just throwing that out there in case I offended anyone

Two years ago, I spent 10 days in Turkey. The internet censorship is the worst there. I couldn't access Youtube. It drove me crazy.
#31
Also, turns out they just blocked ED too. Screw you government, screw your fat, spoiled, hypocritical asses.

And Turkey? Really, I was under the impression that they were quite liberal.

Internet Censorship scares the shit out of me. I don't want the government having any say in the media or art I see. "Tastless and offensive"? Really? I don't remember voting for control over public opinions. I'll decide what I find tastless and I'll decide what I find offensive.

Oh god this. Go for it if you want to block child porn and other obviously wrong shit like that but just leave the rest of the internet alone.
