No Porn in China?

Apparently, internet porn is illegal in China. 

Remind me not to go to China.

What kind of supposed democratic country doesn’t allow internet porn?  This is an atrocity.  The internet is all about the free exchange of ideas, and my uneducated guess is that the idea that porn is obscene and should be banned is probably not one that most people in China would agree with (if asked in private and out of the range of Big Brother, if such a place exists in China) .  It’s restrictive, and it’s censorship.  And it will only serve as a boon for China’s already massive and constantly burgeoning black market.  I think all this fast-track image sculpting the Chinese government is implementing will come back to bite it in the ass in the not so distant future.

At a minimum, it will definitely make for a lot of lonely nights and cranky mornings.
