Govt Blocks All Your Favourite Porn Sites?

The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MEITY) issued a notice to telecom operators demanding they block a list of 827 pornographic sites country-wide

The action was spurred by an order from the Uttarakhand high courtlast month, instructing telcos to obey the circular issued by the Department of Telecom on July 31 2015. You know, the first time the government took porn sites seriously and made an attempt to ban an extended list of them. That was later amended to allow pornographic content not including child porn, yet it looks like we’re on this seesaw once more.

If the DoT is serious enough about this round of banning, it’s probably not too hard to add another URL to the list.

On a side note, think about the world you’re in where your bank, your government, your social media, and others, don’t have customer response nearly as quick as your porn provider
