I found this on the interwebs.
What do you think?
I wouldn’t be keen on such a ruling – seems like a cluster $%*& – too restricting in some ways and a lot of room for loop holes in other ways. I’d prefer to see such software created and marketed to parents but ultimately left up to the parent to decided if they should purchase it for their kids. I’m also curious about –
1) How is it decided what is profanity? Is there a list of words to be banned? Who creates such a list?
2) How does anyone know which cell phone number belongs to an adult or to a child? In the US you can have one account w/ multiple lines but I don’t believe there’s a way to tell if the secondary and tertiary lines are being used by children or by adults.
Yeah, there are a lot of issues with this law. Unfortunately, Free Speech in Korea isn’t well established and one reason it’s considered a “Mostly Free Speech State” by international press agencies.
Banning profanity, while great for discourse and improving the quality of discussion, isn’t the way to go. After all, sometimes you need a good F-Bomb!
