“Black Blogs”, blogs that partake in “questionable materials” such as “sexual images and language” have resulted in a new investigation into this perverted form of internet abuse by the Investigation Agency of the Vietnamese Ministry of Culture.
According to Vietnam Net Bridge, Mr. Vu Xuan Thanh, Chief Investigator for the Ministry, said that blogs in Vietnam are growing too fast for the Ministry of Culture and Information to manage and that consequently, the agency has recently dispatched a team to research blogs in order to find out ways for the Government to manage them.
He noted that although blogs are not illegal in Vietnam, that Regulation 55 and Circular 02 issued by the Ministry of Culture and Information prohibits Internet content that are the opposite to social and Communist Party values.
Blogs noted as containing “questionable material” include a blog by “Lustful Gentleman”, who is rather impartial to sex, and another blog by the name of “conxionâ€™s world” who has “sexual pictures” some of which “are too much for words”.
