Censorship of blogs is silly

One of the points raised against the Blogspot censorship was that censorship of blogs won't work, especially if done by a stupid bureaucracy. They would make stupid mistakes in identifying which blogs to ban, thus, letting 'offensive' blogs stay while 'harmless' blogs will be banned.

However, assuming that just because it is a technologically-challenged, geriatric bureaucracy, it will make mistakes is wrong. Censorship of this kind is always silly. Just have a look at a premier technology's attempts at blog censorship.

I know the news is old, but still does make the point, doesn't it?
