    Voice Thursday, 11 November 2010 09:11 AM

    What about the DVDs and VCDs? This is just a waste of time... those who watch... watch!!! those who dont dont!! simple as that... you cant force people!

    there are millions of websites containing porn and only 847 sites have been blocked. I don't think there is any use by doing so because there are software's that allow to open blocked websites and porn still contains on websites that are not blocked. But its a great try :D

    This is a war the authorities will never win. Unfortunate but it is the truth!

    Mohamed Thursday, 11 November 2010 09:41 AM

    To solve this problem, like legalizing Gaming institutions better legalize these Porn websites too.

    Hassan Wednesday, 10 November 2010 01:36 PM

    This is good. We must follow the example of countries like Saudi Arabia and Pakistan which have banned porn sites. Because pornographic material is unislamic.

    Jana Wednesday, 10 November 2010 01:43 PM

    In the Middle East Coountries Most of Porn sites are blocked, if so why can't SL block it .......... It can be done and It should be done immediatly.......

    Kavindra Jayanath Ma Thursday, 11 November 2010 06:13 AM

    Rajitha Wednesday, 10 November 2010 02:14 PM

    this government is absurd! what's wrong with porn?
    these people must be the brothers and sisters of Queen Victoria.

    sri lankan Thursday, 11 November 2010 06:21 AM

    but still they are barbaric..Saudi should first ban torture.and they should be made to understand that they too are branded as human..[until today at least]

    weha Wednesday, 10 November 2010 02:57 PM

    modern day kids are have more common sense, brains and are more tactful than the old people working in these Bureaus. in time you block one and they will find another 10.

    Calistus Jayatilleke Wednesday, 10 November 2010 04:06 PM

    Cant understand this indecent obsession with porn sites and porn stars whilst allowing gambling and prostitution legally.

    vimal Wednesday, 10 November 2010 09:06 AM

    I dont think the government will be able to block all the porn sites in the world it'll atleast take 100 years to do this. Plus as figures indicate I bet u get more new sites in a day compared to the number that they block after 6months of investigation!

    Luke Sunday, 14 November 2010 05:41 AM

    Porn sites blocked but killing in the name of Allah condoned. Another logic defying ideal.

    pannakku Wednesday, 10 November 2010 07:31 PM

    the only one looking at porn in sri lanka is the guy who's finding all these sites to be blocked and looks like hes the only one who has access to them.

    kumar Wednesday, 10 November 2010 09:03 PM

    With the liberal casinos act, sex shops HAVE to open. Go for it, the sanga will have no objection.

    lmj Wednesday, 10 November 2010 09:27 PM

    In the middle east it's blocked for a few and not for others. Go check your facts.

    nandi mithra Wednesday, 10 November 2010 09:28 PM

    A good opportunity for a ministerial delegation to make a trip to the middle east to study how they did it in their countries!

    sltk2004 Wednesday, 10 November 2010 09:38 AM

    Can't these people at least understand now that this is not a feasible task? They have 'successfully' blocked 847 sites when there are millions still active

    Milson Wednesday, 10 November 2010 09:39 AM

    Can you please name those websites, there are plenty of loop holes on the net to view these types of sites.

    Sumal Wednesday, 10 November 2010 09:44 AM

    We are at war which cannot be won. Why we have to waste our time and energy?

    baba Wednesday, 10 November 2010 11:40 PM

    Is it only because it is unislamic? You are just hipocrits who stone people to death...barbarians!!!!

    Api Walata Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:00 AM

    how can they when they have incompetent people running these offices!!!

    Api Walata Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:01 AM

    but not always! as in this case! please learn about the subject and comment!

    milithi Thursday, 11 November 2010 12:30 AM

    This is hilarious.... Marrying 7 women is ok...but watching porn is prohibited...

    malkanthi Wednesday, 10 November 2010 10:24 AM

    You cannot move par with the technology.

    victor Thursday, 11 November 2010 01:16 AM

    Yet another form of media censorship. Who decides what to block? The government of course. Next step is to block great news sites (like DM) during the next elections when anything critical of the government is written. Wake up people of Sri Lanka!

    demon Wednesday, 10 November 2010 10:28 AM

    Even if they block, there are 100 of other ways to enter in to those websites...

    lionheart Thursday, 11 November 2010 01:36 AM

    And should we also adhere to the other Islamic rules too?????

    AFF Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:17 AM

    Perhaps Loki meant that if there is a will to get into a porn site, then there is a way to do it :)

    Fair n Square Wednesday, 10 November 2010 10:41 AM

    May be they can stop certain sites BUT not all, yet its worth the trouble to get kids away from the sharks

    Sajith Wednesday, 10 November 2010 10:42 AM

    Millions of porn sites are available on the internet. Banning 847 sites will not make a difference.

    AFF Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:20 AM

    Maybe also this someone's boss plans to bring down sex-slaves from abroad to SL and is paving the way for a blooming business. Block websites and create a demand for their product.

    AFF Thursday, 11 November 2010 08:22 AM

    I am stuck here in the middle east with a blocked internet connection. Since you seem to know, can you please tell me how to get an "unblocked" connection?

    maxx Thursday, 11 November 2010 02:07 AM

    DELETE the Internet!

    tamilan Wednesday, 10 November 2010 10:57 AM

    what ever it is good to be band...

    stuxnet Wednesday, 10 November 2010 11:03 AM

    lol yeh,,,so block the internet...or blast the internet...

    asoka abeywardena Thursday, 11 November 2010 02:26 AM

    Elders between 70 - 80...? yeah better block, but please spare some with young and hot...

    sutharsan jeganathan Sunday, 14 November 2010 08:53 AM

    The feasible way to reduce the harm of pornography, might be identifying the hazards and educate the people about how porn affect their life. It is something similar to smoking and alcohol addiction. There are plenty of porn addiction treatment centres established in western countries and recently the researchers have decided that porn is not a good educator of adult sex education. But almost all of the porn sites are hosted from Western countries and people who strictly follow western cultures have the great vulnerability of porn addiction.

    Mr Fantastic Thursday, 11 November 2010 02:39 AM

    Sum 1 Must b havin great time identifying these web sites
    :D :D

    Loki Wednesday, 10 November 2010 11:09 AM

    If there is a will ,there will always be a way.

    TMA Wednesday, 10 November 2010 11:12 AM

    Seems we're close to banning the internet

    MK Wednesday, 10 November 2010 11:50 AM

    exactly. why cant someone educate the authorities how proxies work!??? they are making themselves a laughing

    Anushka Wednesday, 10 November 2010 11:50 AM

    There are millions of such websites and hundreds more go online each month, making this technically impractical. The only way something like this would be even remotely possible is through a massive project like the "great firewall of China", which requires massive resources and has censorship and human rights issues. I don't think the officials suggesting these blockings have any idea of internet technology.

    Raj Wednesday, 10 November 2010 12:13 PM

    Bloking pages is nonsons ..just go to Google just search PAGES you will get withing 0.08 seconds 189,000,000 Pages and day by day comes new pages to the net ..and they can´t stop all this pages then they will l blocke Internet access ..one day

    Raj Wednesday, 10 November 2010 12:19 PM
