South Korea declares war against Internet porn

Pornography is illegal in South Korea. Inevitably, savvy Internet-users find ways to go around governmental blocks, in this case to acquire or view said pornography. South Korea’s solution? Destroy all the porn in an all-out war!

The Associated Press reports that officials in South Korea have decided to outsource an effort to eliminate all the porn that they can find. The interesting group responsible for this are called ‘The Nuri Cops’, literally meaning “net cops”. They are composed of nearly 800 volunteers who help government censors by scouting the web for pornography in their spare time. (Best. Job. Ever.)

Moon Tae-hwa, one of the volunteers, compares it to “shoveling snow in a blizzard.” I’m sure he’s right.

South Korea President, Lee Myung-bak, believes that obscene materials such as porn are “one cause inciting sex crimes.” But my first thought is, doesn’t this have the potential to increase sex crimes; how many otherwise jack-off-to-porn guys are now loose on the street? It’s a tough line to walk, that’s for sure.
