I like how they censor in Pakistan, they just black out the scene when anyone kisses or gets 'too close'.

No, but I have noticed my salon girls can't manage to take their eyes off of the new belly dancing channel.

I hear all of this, but we all know what genuine porn is, and if all those sites are closed, world-wide I would be a very very happy man. I do not fall for the argument that it is about free choice. Porn is addictive, it is like smoking but with even worse consequences. It reduces females (mostly) to objects of lust and reduces the men who are hooked on porn to inadequote males with extremely low self esteem, who then can not face "real" woman and fall into a spiral of self hate that never stops. That is the real face of porn. Freedom of speech? No. Porn causes spiritual emptiness, and turns males into useless edifaces of society. It is a real evil, and comes directly from hell itself.

I think you've misunderstood that we are all mostly against true porn but the question here is what is their translation of the meaning of the word. I think their translation is that any thing that shows either nudity or semi nudity is classified as porn it's not restricted to sex only.
If you have lived in Saudi Arabia you would understand how far this type of censorship goes. Your watching an Arabic film and there's a scene with a belly dancer and it's cut out.That to all sense of the word is not porn.
The newspapers are censored also any bare arms or legs are blacked out with a felt marker.
Also this is the start of something bigger as I see it it's the thin edge of the wedge to overall censorship of the media. In Mubarak's days the television put an announcement on the screen at prayer times these days the cut the programme completely at the time of prayers even the News.

I started of by saying that all of us knows what real porn is, and I wanted to keep the attention on that, not what deviant religious dinosaurs think it is. They will twist anything into something, like the guy who said woman should not buy cucumbers because it will lead to them lusting. Clearly anybody who comes up with something like this has serious issues with sexuality and no possible balanced view is possible. I just did not want us to create the impression that because porn is perhaps getting hijacked, it means we should forget what it really is, and what damage it is doing to our so open free speech society. I am not concerned with them, they will fall into there own hell all by themselves, but we have a gaping one looming like Damocles sword over our heads as a community that should know a lot better.

True.......

But also, the less the idiots that want everyone to behave according to their own views in the world, just cause they think they're better than EVERYONE else, the better.......

Is this banning just gonna make Egyptians evenmore rampant out on the streets?? At least they can get their "cheap thrills" in the privacy of their own homes???!

I personally would like to see more controls on banning violence - and not just in Egypt!

Of course harassment is ONLY the girls' fault, so it got nothing to do with porns

Besides........The countries that banned the nasty stuff have basically "gained" only 2 things:

1- A black market for the bloody stuff, and for the software(s) that bypasses the ban.
2- Increased number of homosexuals. (I know I know, there are NO gays in Egypt ).
