"We even oppose the name Playboy."

Hugh Hefner's mag, even without pictures of undressed women, isn't welcome in Indonesia.

The launch of a version of Playboy magazine in Indonesia has sparked a heated reaction in the world's most-populous Muslim nation. Muslim leaders condemned the publication as "moral terrorism" that destroyed the nation's way of life. But some readers were unimpressed by the toned-down content. One radio caller said he had been deceived as there were no nude women.

Indonesia had seen a number of street protests ahead of Friday's launch. The launch edition carried pictures of women with shots of midriffs, thighs and cleavage. But some readers complained that a number of other magazines already on sale in the country were more revealing. (CNN)

Update: Seems like many people are writing about Hef's birthday and his obsession with his legacy.
