China: Have Porn SMS, Will Travel -- To Jail
from the bad-boys-bad-boys-whatcha-gonna-do dept
Several months ago, Chinese officials said they'd begin blocking text messages that weren't socially beneficial. Now, they're prepared to go a step further, tossing people that send sexually explicit messages in jail for nine days and fining them about $60. Hopefully all those Cyrano SMS services are keeping things clean -- although putting people that forward stupid spam in jail might not be such a bad idea.
