A Mark of Protest.

This is a mark of protest to show and spread the word, that bloggers shall not take things lying down. Fight and take measures against terrorism, Dont try to pin charges upon the people, who have just come out of trauma.

this has got more to do with ISPs rather than govt...Ofcourse, banning a site is not gonna work in this world of proxies..but can't understand why ISPs blocked blogger.com and sites like that entirely.

Man..Have been trying to open this comments page for so long n finally managed to do it!

Well, I dont see purpose of doing this.

Even if they wanted to block, I would expect more rational reasoning or statement which would be sound and imperative to national security or cause for communcal riots etc.

Since none of those have been provided excpet for a statement tht terrorsits communicate via blogs which is not something I would accept.

I stand by this protest.

BTW do give me your wordpress link.

i'm not sure if the ban is still on or has been lifted. but one thing is for sure - this is an act of total 'stupidity' and 'foolishness'. stupidity because the government doesn't know that by banning blog sites, blogs will continue to work (and I don't blame them because the people who took the decision didn't konw the abcd of internet or blogs). foolishness because now the whole world knows that indian govt blocked blog sites in a move to counter terrorism, and made a fool of itself.

I support your initiative.

I totally support freedom of speech and freedom of expression in the blogging world!

@ajith : I agree, ISP`s are more to blame, because they do not have either the foresight, or do not seem to have the technical expertise to block only the mentioned sites alone. Government must also realize that all the people who visit these sites are not going to be totally uneducated and swayed by these kind of inflammatory websites.

@Scribblez: Oh...! Is something wrong with my site..? I thought you weren`t in India., then what could be the problem..?! Thanks for your support. My wordpress link http://srijithunni.wordpress.com Haven`t fully edited the site, just migrated, so that it serves as a backup.. I must say, I definitely prefer blogspot..!

@Suraj:Yes.. I hope the ban is lifted soon.

@Starry: Thanks for your support, starry..

@Gaurav: The ban is still on, I guess, but it might be lifted soon, is what i saw on the news sites..and about the politicians.. 100% agreed..! You made a point there..!

@Jigs: YOu`re right. The blogging world is a virtual utopia of a community, where such problems shouldn`t exist.

Friends, thanks for all your support.! Let us hope the ban is lifted soon..!
