BLOGGING TIMES: April 1st, 2005: Blogging was declared an illegal activity in the United States and was banned in any form. Millions of bloggers have opposed the ban and taken to streets…er… to blogging. Thousands of bloggers were arrested and put in jail as a result of directly opposing the ban. Our reports say, states are running out of jail space. Some of the bloggers were released when they agreed to handover their computers as bail.
When a government spokesman was asked about the reason for banning blogs, he said, “It is a criminal waste of time that can be otherwise used for being with one’s family. About 23 billion hours were wasted in the year of ‘blog’, 2004. We are declaring blogging illegal and banning further use.” Our correspondent reminded the spokesman about violation of ‘Freedom of Speech’ by banning blogs. Spokesman replied “We are in process of amending that right!”
