As with all things follow the money
Ask why would the scam capital of the world banned the legit site.
I thought only Reddit had excessive racism.
A comment so absurd it's not worth debating
and in no way is it racist, it is a provable statement and the India government is doing nothing to stop the scammers and in some area's of the nation actively protecting them
See the recent reporting by Mark Rober and Jim Browning.
ALOT of scamming is currently originating from India, this is fact.
Don’t single out an entire set of people.
The majority of all scams world-wide originate in India and the income generated through these are a significant part of India's GDP, so their statement is very much understandable.
I certainly doubt it's truth though. It's probably just the usual incompetence in public office.
Also state support to criminal organisations would have been highlighted in intelligence reports by now and would be a major topic of diplomatic interactions. As the government is pretty incompetent it would be impossible to keep it a secret.
Your and the other dude’s assertions seem paranoid and irrational. You’re probably just a racist.
India's GDP is 3.5 trillion dollar while the most pessimistic (or optimistic if you like) amount of money involved in tech scams is $7.5 million.
It's much less than a rounding error but probably garbage comments like this is good to vent your frustration about getting laid off and replaced by some indian programmer
your whataboutism however does not change the fact that when it comes to Computer Fraud cases, which is what is being claimed as the justification for banning the VLC site, India is in fact either #1 or at minimum in the top 10 for fraud the originates as malware or "tech support" or simplar scams
and Just like the US Government has an incentive to protect NYC Scammers (and they do) the India government has an incentive to protect scammers there
I fail to understand how me stating the truth and reality of the situation is somehow attacking the people of India nor racism
Just like when people call out the US government for the bullshit it does I don't view it as an attack on me. My government sucks, it is terrible, fuck the US Government.
I am pretty much anti every government
these kind of conversations should prove the point that most of these diversity nonsense is just facade so that they feel better about them behaving shitty in real life
We’ll see what happens next… AMA
Indian IT ministry is one if the worst ministries in the central government (from all governments formed until now)
