Malaysia has a policy guaranteeing that the Internet would not be censored. But that doesn't mean the authorities won't shut down Web sites.
Apparently, action can be taken against Web sites that "spread slanderous comments, insulting the country's leaders, religious sensitivities and race".
The intent of such a policy may be good, but I am concerned about a slippery slope situation. Can and will the authorities always be an objective arbiter of what kinds of Web sites are acceptable and what are not?
