COMMENTARY

Read here on The Aisehman Blog

Excerpts:

"..It must be noted that Section 233(1) of the Communicatons and Multimedia Act is ridiculous in that it too broadly criminalises “unwise use of network or network services for making comments, demands, suggestions or communication which are vulgar, false, threatening or disturbing.”

If I get into an argument with someone in the office and I tell him to “go fuck yourself”, have I not engaged in communication that is vulgar?

More importantly, is there a law against this? I don’t think so.

But if I send him an e-mail with the header, “Go fuck yourself”, then it seems I am committing an offence under the Communications and Multimedia Act.

I have done the exact SAME thing — engage in communication that is vulgar — which in cyberspace is a crime, but outside of it, is NOT.

This is something that needs to be addressed.

AND check this out — if my wife sends me email to tell me that she’s gonna give me one hell of a blowjob the minute I get home, she is not only guilty of an offence under Section 233(1) of the Communications and Multimedia Act, she is also a mere zipper away from committing an offence under Section 377A of the Penal Code, which criminalises blowjobs.

Now, I find this extremely insulting.

Bloggers should be intelligent enough to give valuable suggestions and constructive criricism to instill sense AND not use blog to hurl vulgarity and letting loose of onself. This goes to tell of a persons natural character.
