Censored in South Korea?

As you can see from the flag graph to your right, I get my second largest number of visitors from South Korea. Go figure, given how many of my posts are about the Koreas.

However, according to How to Get Censored in South Korea, a 13 August article in the New York Times on growing Internet censorship in South Korea (never mind the North), certain content can get your site banned in the South. The Times article not only carries some of the banned content, it offers to share it with other websites.

Having previously written on the topic, in 2005 and again in 2007 (including images and a translation of my official warning from South Korea’s Ministry of Information [sic]), I’m going to try posting the Time’s content below. We’ll see if that gets me on Seoul’s naughty list.
