Censorship against Blogspot

If you are reading this and in India, you are lucky.

For certain Indian ISPs have blocked access to Blogspot.

Those wanting to find out what happened, have been banging their heads against the Orwellian labyrinths to get some information on this. So far, not much luck, though rude behaviour has been encountered.

This reminds us of a similar incident of the past. "What has happened now (the blocking of the entire Yahoogroups) was the result of incompetent persons handling technology." This from a former Director General of Police. Not from us bloggers.

Relax and take a chill pill. Dont jump to conclusions about conspiracy theories.

I am sure they will fix it in due course of time. Our country tolerates free speech to a large extent.
