Bloggers beware. The NST's scoop Task Force to check on websites says the Cabinet on Wednesday had a lengthy discussion on the Internet before deciding to set up the task force to "study the need to regulate internet sites with pornographic and seditious content"."The websites to be monitored are those which contain pornographic material and those, including blogs, which carry seditious material.I heard that the Task Force will come under the Prime Minister's Department, where the 4th Floor kids hide. I suggest they go SoPo-Central.blogspot to get started and not use this as an excuse to spend millions to get a new database started.
"These include blogs which post inflammatory content against other races or religions and not just blogs on politics or those which criticise the government, the source said."
