华盛顿邮报呼吁电脑商对“绿坝”说“不”



美国《华盛顿邮报》今日(14日)发表社论《对审查说不》(Say No to Censorship),呼吁电脑生产商抵制中国当局强制要求安装的过滤软件“绿坝”。

社论说:“电脑生产商应该抵制中国对自由表达的限制。”(Computer makers should resist Chinese restrictions on freedom of expression.)

社论称“绿坝”是“一种最糟糕的间谍软件”,(the worst kind of spyware. )

社论说:“电脑生产商必须说不”。(Computer manufacturers need to say no.)

“这种政府审查的先例将带来极深的麻烦。中央原来所采取的网络限制和防火墙当地的用户还能突破,而现在这种审查则是空前的,将对中国电脑用户的自由带来灾难性的影响。”

(The precedent this sets for state censorship is deeply troubling. Situating the locus of censorship in the PC as opposed to a central network restriction or firewall that users could evade is an unheard-of step for state monitoring with dire implications for the freedom of Chinese computer users. )

“假如中国的要求是不切实际和不正当的,西方的公司就应当拒绝理会,这不是爱管闲事的问题。必须发表一个原则性的联合声明。”

(In this case, China's demands are both impractical and unjust. Western companies should refuse to meet them, and not only on pragmatic grounds. A unified statement of principle is needed. )
