    It is rather amusing that one country managed to take down a site for the entire world.

    So Pakistan are concerned with videos on YouTube with anti-pakistani or anti-Islamic content, so have banned the site. So, they're getting rid of content that could - COULD - contain offensive materials. Better block the entire internet then, and while they're at it, magazines, books, all writing and drawing implements, computers and mobile phones.


    Welcome to the 21st century, crucifixions on the left, flailings on the right.

    exactly! i was explaining this to a teacher last week, that banning youtube and not google videos is just not right. Only difference is a teacher saw a rude word on youtube.

    Don't China do the above already?

    And a few years back, didn't China ban Google because they weren't based, or have an office in China?

    Sounds like something they would do.

    The Chinese government keeps a tight rein on the internet and what users can access. The BBC news site is inaccessible, while a search on Google.cn for the banned Falun Gong spiritual movement directs users to a string of condemnatory articles.
    (from here)

    For the record, my previous post wasn't having a pop at Islam, i was having a pop at all backward societies and religions I respect all religions, i just don't agree with them.

    i'll have a pop

    i will have a pop at religion, R.E stands for :-

    ROOT of all EVIL

    we are all supposed to live together, divided by the ignorance of religion, and the hate it promotes.

    glad i am a jedi
