    The above comments are quite ridiculous because they don't know what they're talking about.
    If you were Indian you would knew quite well why this happened & you could care less about it.

    I think I know why this happened! It's to keep up the "productivity" of "customer service" and "telephone sales" agents, by preventing them from surfing porn during their 12 hour workday!

    I suspect the only thing they'll be allowed to have at "phoneside", is a dictionary of "Common English Given Names". That way, they'll be able change their "nom de plume" away from something like, "Biff", "Drake", or "Cinderella", when it isn't working for them.

    With porn available to these employees, they might be either tempted to, or preoccupied enough, to adopt a porn name by accident.

    I mean God knows, we can't have, "Miles Long" or "Lotta Goo" calling the president of the PTA, now can we?

    LOL next time I call my ISP and get the Indian call center I will be imagining the only reason they put me on hold is to jack off in the extreamly small box they work in.
  4. If people are already watching porn, I'm sure they'll keep watching porn.
    Shutting down napster didn't shut down music piracy.
    I still do not know a single person in the world who pays for music.

    Interesting how there is no edit/delete option on these comments.

    Re-read the article and it seems they only want to ban it because it forces all porn into a category and then its no longer legal to hide freaky illegal porn under .com/net/etc domains.

    Also means that all porn can easily be filtered out by IPS's/schools/government/etc by simply blocking .xxx.
  7. Very interesting! Someone mentions porn and suddenly everyone's an authority. Each nation has the prerogative to pass laws that it feels is in the better interest of the majority of its citizens. If a certain individual feels his/her freedom has been stripped away, he/she could always find 'creative' ways to overcome present predicament or perhaps migrate to one of those nations where greater freedom enables anyone to pursue any desire and indulge in any perversion. In the meanwhile, perhaps we should stick to technology. We can always shift to porn if this site is called G-Spot.

    Again you guyz have no idea do you? Just because a part of the population works there doesn't mean everyone does. Well if you judge us by that means then we can judge you by watching your people do crazy stuff in youtube.

    There's some irony here given the fact that India brought us the Kama Sutra...
  10. LOL. Why are you guys arguing so much about that Indians wouldn't be able to watch internet porn?
    One thing most of you don't realize is that it doesn't really matter to indians. They don't rely that much on internet porn. 99.9% of the Indians don't watch internet porn anyway. So, removal of it doesn't really affect them.

    Why Do Men Climb Mountains.....?

    Pick a topic, any topic......
    Well, because somebody posted the thread, that's why!. After which, it then became both our responsibility and manifest destiny to argue about it! BTW, where did you get that statistic about Indians and internet porn, I'd want you to divulge your source before I start accepting that as fact. I think it probably more like 99% DO watch internet porn. I don't have a source. But, I do have my personal belief system, and I'm entitled to my opinion!

    What's a matter with you? Did you come here looking for an argument or something? :rolleyes:

    Let's just say 90% of people with internet do watch porn but something many people tend to miss is around 70% of the population is rural which means no internet & the ones with permanent access to internet is quite low especially with broadbands & other high speed internet connections. Also the majority of porn is viewed is probably through dvds. Most people do watch porn but probably not by means of internet.
  13. India may be the world's largest democracy, but there is just way too much corruption in that country hopefully they get rid of that.

    I hope they restrict porn to .XXX domain only and force domain owners/sellers & ISPs to shut-down and stop porn sites running under .COM & .ORG ...etc. & force them to use .XXX only. This makes life easier for parents and anyone who respects morals.

    I know that somebody somewhere is pissed-off by my suggestion so I'm ready to be attacked and I don't care cause someday we will face the result of our acts; Good or Evil. So, take it easy and look at it from a different prospective.

    Open up your minds and don't let the devil steer you to hell.
  15. It is important to note that porn sites are NOT REQUIRED to have a .xxx domain. It is an option that allows porn sites to be easier identified as what they are. similar to .gov referring to a government entity, and country specific TLDs for country specific sites (no matter how abused these actually are)
  16. americans are jealous. now india will be free of malware, viruses and worms and all that nasty porn stuff that no one wants in their homes., but americans will have to deal with all that crap, and they have to have all that sleaze and disgusting stuff on their cyberspace
  17. india is banning bbw porn lol

    Its "India" ,and not "india".Check with your english before posting.And by the way this is a technology news and analysis site.I don't think this is the right place to post rude remarks about a country and its people.Dont tell me that your country is a utopia.

    While I do believe the following response is appropriate to its flame starting predecessor, there are a few things I would like you to consider.
    With all that said, as I understand it, one of India's prime ministers made a statement something along theses lines. "Now that we have a billion people, the world will have to take us seriously"! I took that to mean the general belief was that you could simply breed yourselves into world prominence". But what do I know.

    If there's such a thing as "Utopia by comparison", I honestly believe that any number of countries would far out balance India for the title.

    I did apply the proper capitalization(s), as a matter of course.
