Pakistan Stalls on Ban of Obscene Words in Text Messages | Geekosystem

Pakistan recently announced a bold plan to start filtering text messages and censoring them for obscene words. In addition to censoring the obscene words, it seemed like it was part of the plan to censor words that might be obscene in a weird parallel universe, filthy slurs like ???mango,??? ???athlete???s foot,??? and the dreaded ???kmart.??? Of course, in addition to the funny ones, Pakistan intended to ban some more truly controversial (but understandble) words such as ???Jesus Christ??? and any reference to sexual orientation or sex in general. That includes ???deeper.???

>>> There’s always someone stupid enough to propose this “solution.” From schools to sovereign states. Pathetic.
