India going towards China ????
I sign into my msgr, got a offline sayin “Indian govt bans blogspot inside India” WTF was my reaction.This is against the fundamental freedom of expression.How can they do it.. I was puzzled but wasnt worried coz my wordpress worked 😀 On googling i got this link which apparently said govt asked to remove some 20 sites/blogs. But almost all ISPs across India have decided to ban entire ” *.blogspot.com ” inside India.
For someone looking for loopholes, u can always use netvibes,my yahoo or other online feed aggregators. If u still want to browse www.pkblogs.com is a better option.It was started by pakistanis as pakistan banned blogspot since march 2006.India joins the elite group of China,Iran,Pakistan in doing this ******* act..Being a democratic country this is pure shit.Right to speech and expression is out of netizens.Thank god wordpress escaped from hit list of blogger,typepad,blogs,geocities.
The reason is silly.
Sources in the government said that a circular was issued by the Home Affairs Ministry three days back asking the Ministry of Information and Technology to block the 12 websites which posted content maligning India.
Officials defended the decision saying, “We would like those people to come forward who access these (the 12) radical websites and please explain to us what are they missing from their lives in the absence of these sites Source:Hindustan times
They forget india is a democratic country and millions are being deprived of freedom of expression since they found some 12 were against the nations interest..Silly..
It might be brought to notice that google earth was in for a ride few months back. But they couldn’t eventually do anything till date. I can view certain places of India’s “strategic” interest clearly sitting in front of PC, so can any t*****t and plan a attack.They leave out big issues, make fuss out of these small ones. Sadly even mumbaihelp.blogspot.com the one about which i told in my last post is also on the receiving end.
With tTechnology no one can stop people, that too in computers.New proxy servers are on the rise since yesterday.
Some proxy servers are
I hope this ban is temporary.. anyway I’m hearing certain isp are allowing access to blogspot now..I just heard the Chief of ISP Association of India saying sub-domains can be blocked so that a large domains like blogspot isn’t blocked.. anyway have to wait and watch.
In the mean time i suggest people to move to wordpress, yet another reason to move to wordpress. Best to have your own site at 5gigs.com and install wp or other blogging API and post the blog there..
The previous restriction on Internet by govt was banning yahoo msn user chat rooms stating child p0rnography.It was acceptable to an extent.But blocking blogs are too much.
By the by My Mournings to those hundreds of people died in Java coz of Tsunami, i was tense for few moments when they gave warning for andaman, Tsunami Plz don’t come again..
