New low in internet censorship

Posted by Madfish on 1450179897
Thailand has just charged two people with a serious criminal offence for clicking the 'like' button on a Facebook post. If convicted, this is throw away the key kind of stuff. They have also previously handed out 20 year sentence to a forum administrator for failing to delete offensive comments *fast enough*.

I am posting this to emphasise two things:

1. Don't host any website in Thailand if you live there or have any plans to ever visit.

2. Take your civil rights seriously. Get involved with Electronic Frontiers or its local equivalent if you have one. Don't make it easy for for the government to erode your privacy or anything else. Do not be complacent.

My thoughts on the issue are basically unprintable, so I will leave it there.
