An anonymous reader writes “Bangkok Post reports that the Thai government has now shut down over 43,000 websites deemed defamatory to the royal institution. Thai ISPs are warned to cooperate ‘voluntarily’ or lose their license. This is in addition to 17,000+ that were recently blocked for ‘national security,’ including both Facebook and Twitter accounts.”
