Cleanternet For A Cleaner And Safer Internet
Countries all over the world, especially those that claim to be democratic (when in fact we all know that they are not really), plan to introduce various control mechanisms to increase control over the content that is published and shared on the Internet.
This ranges from pressuring Internet companies like Facebook or Twitter into removing content that is unwanted or undesirable, to enforcing rules like blocking all adult content by default for all citizens of a country.
Cleanternet is satirical website that tries to educate Europeans (and users from other parts of the world) about the latest European Internet blocking plans.
Cleanternet is a campaign to support European Commissioner Cecilia MalmstrÃ¶m in her plans to introduce a website blocking system in Europe. All European countries must be forced to fight for a cleaner and safer Internet.
A video was created and uploaded to YouTube to illustrate the absurdity of the plans.
Enjoy the video and make sure you pass it along.
Cleanternet is a political satirical Video that explains why installing a filter system to block
child pornographydocumentations of child abuse is a very bad idea and will even help criminals and paedophiles while it penalizes victims at the same time.
Interested Internet users should check out the links section on the Cleanternet website, as they point to websites and discussions surrounding the initiative by the European Union.
The European Union plans to block child pornography sites, and the video makes a valid observation that it would make more sense to delete the sites instead.
Interestingly enough, the majority of sites that would fall under the blocking rule are hosting in countries like the US or European countries. This means that it would not be difficult to get them removed from the Internet instead of just blocked as proposed by the European Union.
Update: Cleanternet is no longer available.
Cleanternet website clearly as you said sounds absurd,also ridiculous I would add.
When we are all striving hard for Net Neutrality,this lady, Cecilia MalmstrÃ¶m sounds like some European nut-case to me,who thinks web blocking system will solve everything.And that too a video on Youtube,Oh boy,what’s next.
“All European countries must be forced to fight for a cleaner and safer Internet”,’sigh’ you sure got that right.
Let’s see who supports this obnoxious notion,maybe some control freak hardliners.
Not sure you got the satirical notion here, you do understand that the video and website is against those efforts?
Let’s clear some stuff up here.
Cleanternet does NOT support Cecilia MalmstrÃ¶m (even though it said it does). In fact, it is trying to do the opposite – to show how ridiculous her ideas are.
Cecilia MalmstrÃ¶m did NOT create or commission this Youtube video…this video was created to highlight the HER stupidity.
So, yes, Cleanternet IS democratic because it is a parody of the NON-democratic attempt of Cecilia MalmstrÃ¶m to censor the internet.
Oh Yeah I almost forgot!
Cleanternet is Democratic huh,my F**t and B*lls**t
Yes Martin I do understand the significance of the published website,but I don’t think it matters that much.
Nope not trying to be satirical or anything,but I was only rooting for Net freedom here, don’t we all?
Wow, that was a heavy dose of sarcasm. Lol. Hope everyone gets it, cause apparently ^^ not everyone does ;)
Great humor, thanks for the find ! :)
