Pakistan To Ban Rude Text Messages

Posted on November 18, 2011


The country’s telecoms regulator has issued a list of more than 1000 words and phrases which will be banned by mobile phone providers, reports The Guardian.

The list includes several apparently innocuous words and phrases, including “flatulence”, “deposit” and “fondle”, along with the bizzare “strap-on”, “beat your meat”, “crotch rot”, “love pistol”, “pocket pool” and “quickie”.

Mobile phone firms were ordered to stop messages including the offending words this week, although tests by the Guardian suggested the blocking technology was not 100% effective.
