China Bans "Extreme Pornography"

I don't know how many of you have been reading about the "Green Dam," the new firewall software China would like preinstalled on all computers sold in the Middle Kingdom. Well, China Journal today has the 5 categories it bans:

1. adult/ pornography
2. extreme adult/pornography
3. violent games
4. homosexuality
5. illegal activities/drugs (including gambling)

First, I'm glad someone is finally culling extreme pornography out of the wrongfully castigated pornography segment. Second, since homosexuality is illegal in China, they must have wanted to be pretty explicit about giving it its own category rather than just include it under "illegal activities." Third, if you take these 5 things out of the Internet, what the heck is left?

I guess if I ever have to move to Asia, China is off my list and will have to find another Asian country that allows all the crazy pornography that I'm into.  Thankfully, I'm pretty sure there are lots of others.

At least they can still receive "penis enlargement" spam.  What a terrible tragedy it would be if the right to receive penis enlargement spam were revoked!

Aren't these the categories that drove all Internet innovation to begin with? What will the Interwebs do now?

Let's be honest: It all started with Pac-Man, which was fine. But it quickly got dicey when Ms. Pac-Man came along. So that's what will be left of the Internet China...the original Pac Man.

Figures.  The ban all the interesting stuff.  Now, if they banned twitter, myspace and insipid blogs (not yours) I could see that.
