BEL 260 Censorship

Few days ago, in BEL 260 class we learned 'how to develop thesis statement' :)
We have a very interesting lecturer, Miss Firhana Nur.
She is a very happy-go-lucky kinda 'girl' ;) & knows how to attract our attention in class.

There was this one exercise which we discussed in class for one of the question. It's in our textbook. The instruction is to write a thesis statement for this statement:

"There should be censorship for blogging."
She asked us to discuss the points for the statement. Some of us managed to come up with these:
1. to monitor the manner of users
2. to avoid faulty rumours
3. to filter the usage of bad language
4. to avoid inappropriate agendas, photos, stream medias

To be honest, I don't really know to agree or disagree with the statement. I am a blogger too, so I tend to ask myself whether censorship is a must or not.

I wrote blogs with offensive languages too. I've put up inappropriate photos too. So, I don't really want to be a hypocrite about this. I think, somehow I disagree with the statement.

Not everybody misuses blogging. Blog is a place where people express their feelings (like me), tell stories (like me), discuss current issues (also like me), etc. etc. (haaa... like me also! ;p)

Censorship may be good but it needs to have limits. Hmm I don't know what I am saying actually. Too dizzy & hungry to write. Oh well
