What's the Best Way to Find Porn? Employ 15-Year-Old Boys of Course

By Sam Gibbs on at

In a rare stroke of governmental genius, Pakistan turned to a 15-year-old boy to track down all of the world’s porn sites in an attempt to filter-out smut. Proving no one is better at hunting down porn than teenagers, young Ghazi Muhammad Abdullah managed to index almost 780,000 sex sites in just six months – now that’s heck of a lot of porn.

Pakistan has pretty strict views on entertainment of the lurid kind, and is attempting to set-up a countrywide web filter to block out the unclean content. It’s already blocked thousands of sites, but as we all know, there’s more porn on the internet than anything else.

Still, it came as a shock to Ghazi, who enquired as to why he could still see porn with the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority who's in charge of these things. The PTA basically said that it could only block sites if it knew the URL, which put the 15-year-old on a mission to create the most comprehensive list available in the only way he knew how.

"I consider this as my religious and national task to do. If my elders don't do this for my generation, than I will do it for mine and forthcoming generations."

Having searched for and viewed 780,000 porn sites from the deepest, darkest recesses of the internet, I’m surprised his little mind wasn’t permanently warped. That’s just too much porn for anyone, right? [The Telegraph]
