6.Using an ad blocker

Yes you heard it right. Blocking ad is also an illegal in some of the countries.Let me clearly make you understand how it is illegal. Take an example of our site ‘Lilimai’, all day our admins work hard to entertain you and do you know the main source of income for the site  is the advertisement and that also if you block it how will they   maintain the page without a single penny. Relax guys, in India blocking ads is not declared as illegal. However while using any ad blocker just think once that you are hurting the site by freely viewing the content which is extracted by hard works.

7.Cyberbullying: Stop that right now

While I was studying in Class-12, I could not believe that i was threatened by my best friend ‘G***ey bhai’ in facebook. Actually he created a fake facebook account and send me offensive messages and made derogatory remark on me.However later he confessed about that and apologized for the mistake. Actually do you know that it is a biggest crime and it can lend you to jail under IT Act 2000 of Indian penal code. So I hope how you understood how illegal it is.
