Damn! Green Dam Sucks!

Did you know bad stuff on the computer will turn an angel into a devil? :)

China's last-minute decision to postpone a controversial content-filtering application on computers sold there is the latest example of the trouble that Western technology companies face doing business in the world's fastest-growing economy.

Businesses and Chinese computer users are up in arms about the Web filtering plan -- ostensibly meant to protect young online users from pornography, but criticized for leaving businesses vulnerable to cyber attacks.

The "Green Dam Youth Escort" software application unleashed a flood of complaints toward Beijing, making strange bedfellows of human rights groups such as Amnesty International, Chinese computer users and trade groups representing the largest international businesses in China.


The government wants unlimited control and wants to know what you're doing at all times. It has nothing to do with porn.
