China says 5,394 arrested in Internet porn crackdown

Are we sure the Southern Baptist Association is at work in China?

Here's what's up: "Chinese police said late on Thursday the crackdown on Internet pornography had brought 5,394 arrests and 4,186 criminal case investigations in 2009 -- a fourfold increase in the number of such cases compared with 2008."


If we start arresting people on net porn charges, we'll need Australia back as a penal colony, though I'm not sure who'd be left to run the rest of the world.

However, what makes a porn site is a little different in China than in the rest of the world, leaving me to believe that maybe those ports should have remained closed some time back.

Why? "China has banned a number of popular websites and Internet services, including Google's Youtube, Twitter, Flickr and Facebook, as well as Chinese content sharing sites."

For the reason: " But the ruling Communist Party worries the Internet could become a dangerous conduit for threatening images and ideas."

Freedom of thought, much less expression, is not yet on the agenda in China.
