Submission + - Thailand blocks anti-royal websites (bbc.co.uk)

societyofrobots writes: "The Thai government says it is planning to build an internet firewall to block websites deemed insulting to the country's hugely popular royal family." In the past, Thailand has blocked YouTube because of a video that criticized the King. While, locally served websites that criticize the king are forcefully taken down, this new law will attack external sites.
