    Hey will,
    IMHO, anything free has to have some limitations! Speaking against a religion or any sort of religious fanaticism in IMO not good at all, not especially on the internet where every strata of the society has access to it.

    As i saw those sites, almost all of them had some provoking content, encouraging people to do something, what we call, BAD!

    It's not actually what the govt. approves/disapproves! It's something in the best interest of the society! Not biased to any religion, it is something done by a handful of a$$h*l*s from every sect!

    I guess, it's a feeling of "To each his own" here. But still if you feel something's right , you don't have to provoke other's to do it. Especially not in the name of wellness or religion !!!

    Juss my 2¢

    Hi Guys,
    I had yesterday written to the CERT and to some of the guys I know, only one person replied, amazingly enough, the other's returned a 'Mailed-daemon' message informing of non-delivery..lol

    Here is a mail, I got in reply from a friend whom I met at a NASSCOM seminar last year, who is the Security Admin at one of India's biggest ISPs.

    Most sites that have been blocked, were blocked because they published something against the Congress(I) party , the Communists and the Government.

    IBN-Live has done an article on it today - read

    They has raised an important point - the website of the Hezbollah's tv channel is not only accessible in India it's hosted here as well.

    Here's a bit of what we as humans have learned about government:

    Whenever there is an interest and power to do wrong, wrong will generally be done and not less readily by a powerful and interested Party, than by a prince. -- James Madison

    We do not believe any group of men adequate enough or wise enough to operate without scrutiny or without criticism. We know that the only way to avoid error is to detect it, that the only way to detect it is to be free to inquire. We know that in secrecy error undetected will flourish and subvert. -- J. Robert Oppenheimer

    The mystery of government is not how Washington works but how to make it stop. -- P.J. O'Rourke

    The government is like a baby's alimentary canal, with a happy appetite at one end and no responsibility at the other. -- Ronald Reagan

    I don't make jokes, I just watch the government and report the facts. -- Will Rogers

    When buying and selling are controlled by legislation, the first things to be bought and sold are legislators. -- P.J. O'Rourke

    I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution or that have failed their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is ``needed'' before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents ``interests,'' I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is liberty and that in that cause I am doing the very best I can. -- Barry Goldwater

    Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one. -- Thomas Paine

    Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first. -- Ronald Reagan

    The general (federal) government will tend to monarchy, which will fortify itself from day to day, instead of working its own cures. -- Thomas Jefferson

    No man is wise enough, nor good enough to be trusted with unlimited power. Charles Caleb Colton (English author and clergyman; born 1780; died 1832)

    Liberty has never come from government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of government. The history of liberty is the history of resistance. -- Woodrow Wilson

    Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters. -- Daniel Webster

    No man's life, liberty, or property is safe while the legislature is in session. -- Mark Twain

    Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms [of government] those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny. -- Thomas Jefferson, Bill for the More General diffusion of Knowledge (1778).

    Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys. -- P.J. O'Rourke

    The State never intentionally confronts a man's sense, intellectual or moral, but only his body, his senses. It is not armed with superior wit or honesty, but with superior physical strength. I was not born to be forced. -- Henry David Thoreau

    The makers of the Constitution conferred, as against the government, the Right to be let alone; the most comprehensive of rights, and the right most valued by civilized men. -- Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis: Olmstead v. United States (1928)

    If a society is to remain free, its government must be controlled. -- Ayn Rand

    Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have .... The course of history shows that as a government grows, liberty decreases. -- Thomas Jefferson

    Those who have been once intoxicated with power, and have derived any kind of emolument from it, even though but for one year, can never willingly abandon it. -- Edmund Burke

    Must a citizen ever for a moment, or in the least degree, resign his conscience to the legislator? Why has every man a conscience, then? I think that we should be men first, and subjects afterward. It is not desireable to cultivate a respect for the law, so much as for the right. The only obligation which I have a right to assume is to do at any time what I think is right. -- Henry David Thoreau

    Why are the people rebellious?
    Because the rulers interfere too much.
    Therefore they are rebellious.
    -- Lao Tsu

    Every increase in the size of government necessitates a decrease in an individual's freedom. -- Christian Harold Fletcher Riley

    The state represents violence in a concentrated and organized form. -- Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

    The state is the coldest of all cold monsters. Coldly it lies, too; and this lie creeps from its mouth; 'I, the state, am the people.' -- Friedrich Nietzsche

    The more people are controlled, the less contented they become.
    But when will leaders understand the significance of this?
    -- Lao Tsu

    Hi All.. Today, 1st August 2006, Malaysian Government have decided to shut down (block) access to blogs if found that Anti-Government movement are using this platform to voice out their agendas. Singapore Government have also done that early this year.

    What a suck country.. After China, Pakistan, India, Singapore and now Malaysia...

    There is no "Freedom of Speech" whatsoever even in the Internet.
