"The purpose of registering the bloggers is to COLLECT DATA rather than to CENSOR them."
He said the Government’s move should not be misconstrued as hindering bloggers from continuing with their activities. “The plan to register bloggers is merely to assess the situation and keep track on how many bloggers there are in the country and on the information provided by them. It has nothing to do with censoring the contents in the blogs."
The same exercise is being practiced by Singapore whereas some countries like China, Thailand and Middle East countries are practising censorship on blogging.
