Call me an ignoramous. Go ahead. I feel quite ignorant and positively dumb, after just discovering this today. I didn’t know certain websites were banned in Singapore, till I came across this article on Yahoo Singapore which talks about the possibility of having the internet unrestricted, which to me sounds like a good thing. I always thought only workplaces banned certain websites like FaceBook or Windows Messenger. Anyway they mentioned Playboy is one of the websites restricted so I typed in the address and came to this page. It was quite a shocker to me. Suddenly I didn’t feel as free as I did before.
On another note, isn’t this totally counterproductive? Why ban playboy, when you complain that Singaporeans are repressed, asexual and are not having enough babies.
This also makes me wonder. What other websites are banned? Anyone know?
The website which you are trying to access is restricted by the Media Development Authority (MDA).
