I wonder how I would feel as a blogger being put under death threat? Not likely to occur here in the US, unless some Muslim fanatic didn't like my posts. But that is what is going on in Iran. The Majles, Iran's parliament, is considering doing that to threaten upwards of 110,000 blogs in Iran. Read what the proposed legislation has to say, it's mind blowing.
The bill, which parliamentarians say is designed to "toughen punishment for harming mental security in society," would make offenses such as "establishing weblogs and sites promoting corruption, prostitution and apostasy" a crime punishable by death.
