Blogger Blocked in Pakistan

It is a Sad day in Pakistan as our esteemed leaders have decided to further infringe on our rights to freedom. It has come to my attention that all ISPs in Pakistan are blocking all blogger blogsites. Previously some sites deemed inapropraite were blocked, but this is utter nonsense, why do a blanket blocking of blogger, are you so scared of people power that you feel a blogsite can be so harmful to you and your power.

Really? Indefinite?
I've gotta check with my friends back in PK. It sure feels absolutely ridiculous. Hopefully they will realise that soon and unblock.

pakistani bloggers have initiated a campaign to get blogger unblocked, lets hope it works, this is a serious curb on freedom of press, right before the Bush Visit.

From what I hear, its because the dolts at PTA (Pak Telecom Authority) found out that some ppl on blogspt had put up the 'caricaatures' on their blogs. In order to protect the 'pure' people from 'the land of the pure', they decided to block everything on blogspot.

For a few days I thought there was a technical problem at my office, but then found out the truth. Hope it goes away soon. I don't like the extra step of using an anonymous proxy server!
