Submission + - More websites offending Thai monarchy blocked (bangkokpost.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Thailand is ramping up their media wide censorship of anything that remotely offends Thai royalty. In the last three weeks, another 2,300 websites have been blocked. Another ~4,000 are soon expected. And not just websites, but books as well as the Economist has been blocked: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7851177.stm And anyone caught publishing such material, including foreigners, will get 3 to 15 years in a Thai prison. You don't want to be in a Thai prison! http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7604935.stm http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/7836854.stm
