On the banning of mobiles from schools

Lirneasia pretty much sums up all the nonsense here.

This latest ban, which has no basis in law, comes hot on the heels of the government ordering ISPs to block several porn websites, the Child Protection Authority banning the “hosting” of porn on mobiles, and the sickeningly subservient attitudes of mobile phone companies to appease a government that arbitrarily blocks websites other than porn it finds inconvenient.

If this is what the future looks like today, it stands to reason that we should be very worried about this inane, hypocritical encroachment of paternalistic government into our private lives.
