Korean Porn Site Shutdown Highlights Nation's Poor IT and Cultural Knowledge

Hand job
The shutdown of Korea's largest porn site has highlighted the poor state of the nation's IT skills and cultural knowledge, according to experts.

The Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency (SMPA) said they shut down Soranet last Friday and booked 69 people who were suspected of violating a string of laws by using the site. Soranet was notorious for its illicit photos taken by hidden cameras, as is the SMPA, who are believed to have been unhappy with the competition.

The Korean porn site was originally located in the United States. The decision to locate a pornographic web site in a country which is so repressed citizens in some regions regularly masturbate to the Bible is seen as an indictment of the Korean school system, and a misunderstanding of the idea that America is the "land of the free" - a statement which was not intended to be about sexually liberal values but rather the basis of American corporate employee salary theory. And while the home of the brave was burned down and his wife sold into sexual slavery, this is rarely depicted in videos watched by the illegal immigrants who now control the country.

After Soranet's owners became aware of the investigation in the Untied States, the site was moved to the Netherlands as it was thought the country's intangible nature would confuse Korean police. However, the Netherlands is actually a real place and contrary to popular belief in Korea items placed there can be physically found.

Korea's IT experts both said that placing an illegal porn site in countries whose police are bound to cooperate with Korean police was a mistake, and that the owners should have placed it in an war-ravaged country like Ukraine or Japan. They could have also masked their site by making it part of the Kimchi Network, a porn-ridden privacy-focused Internet system created by the Korean Navy to combat boredom on ships, which requires the difficult to swallow Kimchi Browser to access.

Police in Seoul were said to have finally decided to act to close Soranet after conducting a joint investigation with their U.S. counterparts, although ultimately no link was found between pornography and drug use. After police seized the the porn server in the Nether region, the site went down on its owners as they had apparently failed to keep a backup, although police fear another opening. The site's homepage now shows engineers working on an old cathode ray tube monitor with two wrenches. Experts are divided on whether this is likely to fix the problem.

Soranet was said to have had over one million registered users at the time of its suspension, who have now been left hanging after it went down. Professor Kim (57), an expert in sex at Seoul International University, cautioned people about the dangers of pornography, and that it is no substitute for physically-intimate relationship with another person. "Unlike a website, a Korean woman will never go down on you" said Professor Kim.
