I suppose if one wants to insult, tongue on testicles is the way to go.

Comment on Current issue: Seeing the future of journalism – will the public know more? by Edip Emil Oymen http://www.indexoncensorship.org/2014/09/coming-soon-seeing-future-journalism-will-public-know/#comment-2092043 Mon, 27 Oct 2014 09:11:41 +0000 http://www.indexoncensorship.org/?p=60135#comment-2092043 If I had lived in the UK, I could have bought the “print” issue. How about prospective readers who don’t live in the UK? Why can’t I simply pay for reading this online? Do I have to have an iPad for this service? Why only on an iPad? “Others” & laptops don’t deserve this service eh? Many papers, journals & periodicals have online reading arrangements. Snail mail is so passe. See how the New York Times works this out.

Comment on Bahrain: Maryam Al-Khawaja urges UK to speak out on human rights violations by koert http://www.indexoncensorship.org/2014/10/bahrain-maryam-al-khawaja-nabeel-rajab-human-rights/#comment-1905277 Fri, 17 Oct 2014 19:10:04 +0000 http://www.indexoncensorship.org/?p=60970#comment-1905277 Bahrain is a backward country,
they should adapt the modern ways from their neighbor Iran and hang the prisoners.
Which means hanging in the modern way, not the old way where the neck breaks, but in the modern iranian way and hang them slowly so the neck wont brake and it will take tenth of minutes to die.
Whats wrong with Bahrain? Why are they so backwards ?

Comment on Bahrain: Maryam Al-Khawaja urges UK to speak out on human rights violations by Quixote http://www.indexoncensorship.org/2014/10/bahrain-maryam-al-khawaja-nabeel-rajab-human-rights/#comment-1889049 Fri, 17 Oct 2014 00:13:20 +0000 http://www.indexoncensorship.org/?p=60970#comment-1889049 This is really terrible. In America we punish people when they insult professors with impertinent “confessions” aimed at harming their “reputations,” but we are careful never, ever to punish anyone for insulting a politician. The court in Bahrain should study the pertinent analysis of New York’s highest court in the leading decision in this area, documented at:

Comment on The repugnant Section 66A of India’s Information Technology Act by PANKAJ DESAI http://www.indexoncensorship.org/2014/06/the-repugnant-section-66a-of-indias-information-technology-act/#comment-1857910 Wed, 15 Oct 2014 05:17:28 +0000 http://www.indexoncensorship.org/?p=58329#comment-1857910 I congratulate you for this excellent article. I would also like to appreciate the boldness in it – boldness because it challenges the intolerant authorities. I am aware of many people most of them young getting harassed by this law. the worst part is these cases are filed wherever the matter appeared and not where it originated from. As a result even if an email or social media insert has originated and someone in Tuticorin or Rajkot takes an offence, the case will be filed at these places and the writer has to travel all the way to these places for hearing. also, inspite of the triviality of the matter the harassment and financial losses are so overbearing that the person becomes an easy prey to harassment. The judges are under no compulsion to grant an automatic exemption from personal appearance. Also the complainant who “felt” he was annoyed stays at home and the police files the case as a result he/she is least bothered and the person who is booked and is now victimized runs from one city to the other. This is just not tolerable. i am sure aware people like you (and I) should further encourage movement against this act and request the Supreme Court to throw out this Act expeditiously.
