Cyber law mulled to block lies in blogs

SITIAWAN: Registering bloggers may be a “stricter” way to stop cyberspace writers from spreading disharmony and lies. Acknowledging that the registration of bloggers was a difficult task, Deputy Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Kong Cho Ha said that it needed the cooperation of other countries. Kong said: “We need to have stricter cyber laws to prevent these bloggers from disseminating disharmony, chaos, seditious material and lies.

“We are talking about creating cyber laws to control those who misuse the Internet,” he added.

Kong noted that the high number of bloggers in the country was a good development if they used the Internet constructively.

However, he said, some of them would put up sensational or controversial articles or images to attract readers to their blogs.

“We want our bloggers to be responsible, to keep within the rules and not put up seditious articles that can create disharmony and chaos,” he said.

Citing the example of the recent picture of Gombak MP Datuk Dr Rahman Ismail and Senator Datin Paduka Norhayati Onn, Kong said it reflected the irresponsible acts of some bloggers.

“Now we have cyber laws to check such misuse but the laws need to change to keep up with the times.

“This is because technology changes faster than our laws,” he said yesterday after opening the inaugural computer fair at Dewan Merdeka in Seri Manjung, near here.

The fair was organised by the Association of the Computer and Multimedia Industry of Malaysia (Pikom).

Me: “They scared the truth thus it was a lie” – Go fuck yourself. We are not zombies under your control. We have had enough of you controlling our daily lives. We are fedup with your policies, constituencies and all your puny bullshits. If truth hurts, go and deaf yourself you imbecilic idiots. You can’t even use simple common sense. The rakyat pay your smelly ass to sit in the Dewan Rakyat to make Malaysia a better place. We pay the fucking tax so you corrupt bastards can live in a fancy bungalow while we hustling day and night trying to feed our family.

And now with the booming of the internet you are scared of us? Go fuck the wall if you have problems with your eyesight mother fuckers. If you fear truth, go and answer the truth to your God when you die. Punk. So don’t play God with us cos you ain’t one and never gonna be one. Sucker.
