Indonesia to block porn sites – and is struck off our potential 2008 holiday destination list

Internet, Weirdness

indonesia-bans-porn-Lucas_Jackson.jpgBored businessmen in Indonesian hotel rooms are about to get a little bit more bored, thanks to the government passing a bill to ban “pornographic” and “violent” web sites.

The maximum penalty for getting caught with your trousers literally down is three years in prison – compared to the UK penalty of just being ignored by your girlfriend for a couple of days.

“I think we all agree there’s no way we can save this nation by spreading pornography, violence and ethnic hostility,” said information minister Mohammad Nuh, pointing out that the main aim of the law change is to protect the country’s young web users, rather than simply spoiling everyone’s fun.
