Indonesia Cock Block’s Tens Of Thousands Of Men From Porn On Ramadan

Indonesia can be a very strict place when it comes to the Internet (see Man faces five years for ‘God does not exist’ Facebook post). Most recently, the country’s communications and information ministry has pulled the plug on pornographic websites in advance of Ramadan, which begins at sunset on Thursday.

We’re not talking about just a handful of key portals. The Indonesian government has killed access to 1 million porn sites, all of which were based outside of the country. The ministry estimates there are around 2 billion websites providing pornographic content. Link

From the comments:

As someone who lives in Indonesia I can attest that despite the Governments claim to the contrary their porn blocking is not at all effective. They rely on all the ISP’s using a nameserver with the content blocking software. Simply by changing your modem setting to use the Google nameserver gets completely around it.

For those who don’t know, Indonesia is one of the most corrupt countries in the region, and in the world given if you consider it’s high GDP. It is rated on par with African countries on most corruption indexes. IQ is around 89, making their average quite a bit higher than the African countries they are ranked with.

Any repressive measure they try will likely rely on brute force and not technical sophistication, and is therefore easier to protect against providing you can keep your physical body safe. When traveling in countries like this, expect a “Gringo tax“, protect your assets  and communications appropriately.

Businessmen believe that the Indonesian police handle the most bribes in the country.[3] Being harassed by the police is a common occurrence. Corruption in the police system is rampant and even institutionalized in certain aspects. For example, brokers not functioning within Jakarta’s motor vehicle and driving license offices charge almost one and half times the official price, while reducing the time needed to receive the license.

Evidence of corruption within the civil service comes from surveys conducted within the sector. Some surveys found out that almost half were found to have received bribes. Civil servants themselves admit to corruption.[1]

In January 2012, it was reported that Indonesia has lost as much as Rp 2.13 trillion (US$238.6 million) to corruption in 2011. A study conducted by Indonesia Corruption Watch, a non-profit organization co-ordinated by Danang Widoyoko, said that embezzlement accounted for most of the money lost and that “government investment was the sector most prone to graft.”[4]
