Govt. to ban

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Nepal Telecommunications Authority has written to all Internet Service Providers to immediately block dozens of sites it deems objectionable.

The list includes URLs that have explicit sex or violent content but also includes sites like and the website of the rock band Sex Pistols.

Other sites include of San Francisco Sex Information (SFSI), which trains people to become sex educators and operates a free information and referral switchboard., the website of a prestigious scientific journal, is included as well. Yet another is, an outreach project for sex workers.

The full list of sites to be banned by the government is:…/satc…sex/92-10-21_sex.htm

    First thing, the site blocked is *utube* and not *Youtube* .. which has been around like fire .

    Regarding the blocking of those sites. I find that a plain and simple way to get paid for nothing. All those resources put in to work for the purpose and the efforts are gonna go in vain for even a 8 year old kid who enjoys facebook knows that there is this thing called a ‘free proxy server’ . Someone should run a VPN business now :)

    I was expecting an even bigger list for it was to come from NTA .. seems like some guy asked his/her sons/daughters to collect the list of porn sites off from school and forwarded them around.

    Youtube banned!! What a joke! I guess they’re now following the northern neighbour. But seriously, they’ll finally need to make ‘sex’ unsearcheable in google!!

    how are they gonna block millions of sites which keep on changing their address?

    some research in india or west said that porn reduces rape case, sexual abuse.

    dont the idiot govt know sex is one of the basic human needs others are food, shelter, healthcare, eduction.

    i say, govt should guarantee free sex for all above 21.

    It’s totally ridiculous to block youtube, huffingtonpost, Why they are blocking youtube? when they already don’t allow the porn videos there. What they find there to block?
    I think they don’t have any predefined legal criteria to define the word “Porn”. They are doing in very unprofessional and random way.
    If they think so, there are so many bloggers who designed porn site in blogspot, then why don’t they block

    How stupid can the Baajes at NTA get? Banning respectable sites like Huffingtonpost and Springer!!! What next, ban Time, Newsweek, and, ah yes, Nepalitimes. Just shows how ill informed the idiots are at NTA are.

    What actually happened here is something different. These fuckers think that they can handle us like the North Korean government. They are afraid to come to the public who criticize them and are trying to suppress our voice. Everything they are doing will finally result in our leaders being thrown away like Gyanendra.
    Can’t we sue the government for going against our privacy? If so, why not form a group, maybe an organization and work together?
    I’d love to sue this new rule.
    Its not the matter of youtube or utube. Its about our rights. We don’t have electricity, we don’t have good network, good internet, we have nothing good. Still, we did not speak anything. And now these idiots are trying to close our source of information, entertainment and contact. We cannot let this happen.
    We cannot be afraid of our government. Our government should of afraid of its people.

New ones created everyday. I’m embarrassed by the government. Its a backward, primitive and juvenile decision. Other countries will be laughing at us.
