Hi everyone/anyone. Are internet sites censored in Indonesia? In Dubai nearly every other site is blocked as it "is inconsistent with their moral values", the prostitues working in the bars complain like mad about it over their tripple vodkas.

Does anyone know about Internet censorship for Asian countries? I know China is filtering, what about the others?

Thailand - shagging sites , and they learn quite quickly from the sites you visit - somewhat strange really when you take a look at Bangkok .

I had an ISP that blocked porn sites .... Needless to say they stopped that practice when I e-mailed them explaining the only reason I have an internet connection is for the porn!!

You wont have any troubles with internet here. Same goes for booze and women.

Not exactly censorship, but I had a problem buying things over the internet... for example, paying for domains or hosting using a credit card.... because Indonesian IP's are flagged as being high risk for fraud...

I always bypassed the Etisalat proxy, the following site offers many options, but, I must warn you it can take a bit of time to find one that works, and even then, they only tend to be open for a while until the ISP discovers that they have loads of "side traffic" using their proxy for porn.

http://proxy.org/cgi_proxies.shtml

Also note that according to the Etisalat T&C of service, doing this is completely illegal.

Here is one for you - the Thai's decided to stop legal action against youtube and google for some derogatory images of the King - OK , I understand that the little chaps are very protective of Old Rama , but what the hell has it to do with them if the site is outside of Thailand ? The whole thing is irrelevent anyhow - the Ministry of of information and communication technology has banned all access to youtube in the first place .

Indonesia does have a few plus points .....
