10 years ago, i was flying from london to sri lanka via jordan airport.
I had a DJ magazine with me for a DJ friend in sri lanka, and lacking anything to read on the flight, i had it in my hand.
the guy at immigration saw the magazine in my bag and wanted to take a look. i knew what was going on, and i also knew that hte magazine didn't have anything they could even REMOTELY consider "lascivious" so i let him have it.
he leafed through a few pages and asked me (with great disappointment) "no mwah mwah mwah?" while kissing his hand.
i had a hard time NOT telling him that i was an IT geek, and we can get our "mwah mwah mwah" from the internet.
the point i am trying to make is that when you try to suppress a biological impulse, nay NECESSITY, people will find a way to get access to it.
they are trying to implement a pornwall in sri lanka as well. a year ago the government blocked ELEVEN sites. now they want to block a hundred. I know the guys in charge of the pornwall. I know their abilities. i know at least two of them are in a porn mailing list that has been in existence in one form or the other since 1998
i would REALLY doubt it was incompetence on the part of the people running the firewall. that is created to make the politicians and the religious extremists feel better.
if the IT guys wanted to take down a site, they would, but most of them really don't want to, and really don't care. as far as they are concerned, they are doing their jobs, but when it comes to things like this "their job" is the bare minimum they are forced to do.
