Censorship

This is the first time I’m living with censorship (I was too young to appreciate it properly the earlier time) and I’m not liking it much. Technologically challenged people in the government have decided that all of the blogs at blogspot.com and typepad.com are to be blocked. I cannot also access any geocities.com site. Either that or the ISPs here do not have the wherewithal (brains) to ban subdomains rather than entire domains. Luddites. What next, the printing press? How about cellphones? The radio. No, that is controlled anyway. Bah.

On a happy note, I can use http://www.pkblogs.com to access any blogs on blogspot.com, but not the others. Also, I cannot comment on those blogs.

There isn’t a word to express how I feel. 😡

Does anyone know how I can read typepad.com blogs? Google’s cache is usually a couple of days old. Webarchive.org isn’t current either.

  1. a google search for the term “anonymous proxy” could be illuminating, but I’m afraid I don’t have a quick fix. Good luck, this is outrageous!

  2. I can understand how you feel… it´s awful!

  3. Unfortunately I can’t help you on this. But, being as I am finally catching up on blog reading…I want to tell you how gorgeous your purses are. The colors are fabulous….pat yourself on the back, girl!!!

  4. Huh? WTF? Am I understanding correctly? The govt’ there has blocked all blogs at blogger and type pad? How?

  5. How ugly!! I wish that i could offer some suggestions but I can not! I did see that its supposed to be only temporary, so hopefully they lift the bans soon!!!!! *hugs*
