Russia Wants to Ban Coarse Language Online

Internet Censorship to be Extended to Protect Kids

The English version of the Russian newspaper Prawda (which is close to the Communist Party of the Russian Federation) reports that some politicians in the Russian parliament plan to extend the internet censorship in Russia even further. After more and more regime critics had to suffer from censorship laws that were allegedly designed to protect kids from pornography, drugs or other harmful information, some lawmakers now would like to wipe out curse words and other hazardous comments. Especially in social networks.

The law "On the protection of children from information harmful to their health and development" was enacted in Russia on 1 September 2012. The law introduced a register of banned sites. In addition, books, concerts, TV programs and other information is now marked with special marks limiting the age of the audience.

When a website administrator allows a discussion to heat up too much and doesn't act fast enough to cool it down, he might have to face to be placed on a black list. This would have the consequence that the site gets blocked for Russian users. That should make it even more easy to silence critics - even when they use language without objection. One would only have to find enough undesirable comments surrounding it.

The reason for the tightening of the rules is obvious. It seems that there is a huge discrepancy in the behavior of Russians in real life and on the internet. Angels turn to demons there and that is not supposed to happen.

Yelena Mizulina, a government representative, says: "Obscene language offends both children and adults. A ban on its use is not an infringement of human rights. This is a direction towards a civilized lifestyle. If we do not use foul language in real life, then why do we use it on the Internet?"

It has to be seen whether president Putin or the leading party in the Duma, United Russia, is going to adapt the idea.
