Communism; The Microsoft Way

Image hosted by Photobucket.comIn an effort to not offend the Chinese government, Microsoft's new Chinese web portal will not allow the use of certain key words, two of which are "freedom" and "democracy." If you look up the definition of irony in the dictionary, I'm pretty sure banning the word "freedom" would probably fit nicely.

If a Chinese web surfer were to attempt to input these words in, say, the title of their MSN Spaces blog, they would recieve the following message;

"This item contains forbidden speech. Please delete the forbidden speech from this item."

Other banned words and phrases include "demonstration" and "Taiwan indepedence." Although Microsoft refused to comment on this when asked by the media, it's Chinese subsidiary Shanghai MSN Network Communication Technology claimed that this move happened because "MSN abides by the laws and regulations of each country in which it operates."

Next, we hear Bill Gates is going to travel back in time and obey the laws in Nazi Germany - using Excel to keep track of registered Jews, and forcing all gypsies and homosexuals to use Linux.

Interesting sidenote - did you know the systems used to register Jews in Nazi Germany was designed as part of a partnership between the Nazi's and IBM? It's true! Read about it here.
