Internet CensorshipEdit

Wikipedia?Edit

Certain pages on Malayasian subjects were recently discovered to be inaccessable from at least one ISP (singnet.com.sg).

Notes:

  1. The page can be viewed by changing the url slightly: such as encoding a few characters in hexidecimal, or using the history to find an oldid, or using a google cache. The same pages with the same content are also not inaccessable on other wikis, making this seem suspiciously targeted if it is indeed censorship.
  2. These return a connection timeout or blank page. This is in contrast to other blocked internet sites, such as pornography, which will return a message such as "The site you requested is not accessible. For more information please check with the Media Development Authority."

OthersEdit

  • Various pornographic sites
  • Playboy (lifestyle)
  • Chick.com (religious, Protestant fundamentalist cartoonist Jack Chick's website)
  • penthouse.com (lifestyle)
