Pakistan bans YouTube....

They don't want people to see the trailer for Geert Wilders film about Islam...
Pakistan has banned access to YouTube on the grounds that "anti-Islamic" movies have been posted on the site.

The Pakistan Telecommunication Authority told the country's 70 Internet service providers on Friday that the video sharing site would be blocked until further notice.

The authority did not specify what the offensive material was, but a PTA official said the ban concerned a movie trailer for an upcoming film by Dutch lawmaker Geert Wilders, who has said he plans to release an anti-Koran movie portraying the religion as fascist and prone to inciting violence against women and homosexuals.

Although I do not support censorship, youtube does contain some horrible material. I think the solution would be for youtube to control the content.
