guilty of hooliganism!

Three members of Pussy Riot (a Russian punk band and feminist collective that mocked Russian president Vladamir Putin during a "punk prayer" in a Moscow cathedral) have been found guilty of hooliganism driven by religious hatred and offending religious believers a judge ruled.

Their trial drew enormous international interest, sparking catcalls from international free-speech advocates and spawning dozens of protests--including demonstrations in more than two dozen cities worldwide on Friday before the verdict was announced.

Madonna, Bjork, Paul McCartney and (that fucking bitch) Courtney Love were among a long list of musicians to come out in support of Pussy Riot, calling on the Russian government to set the band members free. Last week in Berlin, more than 400 people joined a protest.

Lawyers for the women complained during the trial that the trio were being starved and tortured in prison.

Despite how much our rights are being given up for safety, it's amazing that in 2012 this kind of censorship still exists. I think it's great to see other artists getting involved. I am also curious how this will change things going forward. This will be another great example of how the fast moving media of the internet, & everyone being connected, will help spread what would have been an event that normally would not have been heard or acknowledged here in US.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 6

Uh oh. Russia's in trouble now. Madonna AND Courtney Love are pissed. And Courtney Love was, at least for a moment, sober enough to understand news. That's the REALLY troubling aspect of this whole thing.

Wait - you are shocked that censorship still exists? If anything the free-for-all asshat nature of the internet makes people more aware of offensive crap going on in other parts of the globe and not just on the neighborhood block leading to crusades and waring nosy-nelly ideologies.

Heck - even ebay's getting all up in that censorship biz..

Quote

Sorry, love spell vendors: eBay is cracking down on the sale of magical wares.

Beginning in September, the site is banning the sale of "advice, spells, curses, hexing, conjuring, magic, prayers, blessing services, magic potions, [and] healing sessions," according to a policy update.

The company is also eliminating its category listings for psychic readings and tarot card sessions.
cite

Oh, and a few other rule changes they mentioned"

Quote

Spells and hexes aside, eBay is rolling out a long list of rule tweaks, as it does several times a year. For example, buyers will now be required to contact sellers before getting eBay involved with any issues regarding a purchase. Sellers will also be subject to a fee for ending an auction earlier than planned.

EBay also banned the sale of "work from home businesses & information," a category that is often abused by scammers.

eBay doesn't use the word 'pussy', so none of this is news-worthy.
