Dangerous Blogging


Slashdot reports on the case of a Malaysian blogger threatened by legislation that may brand his weblog a potential danger to "national security." Did he leak military secrets? Call for the assassination of public figures? Not quite. Apparently one of his readers posted a comment (later removed) that was derogatory to Islam. The people calling for this guy's head must not get out in the blogosphere much, because if that counts as a national security threat, Malaysia is really, really insecure.
