My Blog is among the Bestest Blogs :D
But I cannot see it, my ISP blocks
Limericks are love
But, by Jove
Freedom of Expression's being fed to dogs.
My Blog is now Bestest Blog of the day (July 18th) on Bestest Blog of all time . I am so thrilled! :D I never really expected this, but now... it'll take time to sink in. I want to thank Bobby Griffin for this. I've always wanted to reach many people, and now I can. :-)
I feel like I'm recieving a Oscar :D. "I'd like to thank my muse, my friends who supported me..." ... lol! Keep reading, I promise to keep posting (unless college is too busy ;-) ). Do comment, and do have fun!
India Blocks Blogs
Along with good news come bad things . (Or maybe I'm too pessimistic.) This is the Bad thing. Here is another article. I'll quote from both articles. Do read them. This is one more... it has much info. (an update on the post).
From the former article:
Web sites can be blocked if they contain pornography, speeches of hate, contempt, slander or defamation, or if they promote gambling, racism, violence or terrorism.
I can't see my own blog without a proxy. Does it contain those things too? Or does my friend's, who does nothing but praise India? I cannot even see Bestest Blog of All Time. I think this is a serious thing... a violation of the Freedom of Expression. Maybe I'm taking it too seriously... I quote from the latter article:
A post on The Great Indian Mutiny (http://mutiny.wordpress.com/2006/07/17/blog-blackout/) asked for more maturity from users as the issue was not freedom of speech, but only a temporary security measure.
I hope so. I hope I can see my blog again, I hope the thousand of blogs who have been blocked inspite of being, to use real life terminology, "innocent", are back again. I'll wait for a few weeks. I'm sad. But I'm ready to be patient if it's a security measure. :-) I hope everything will be back to normal soon.
I'll end with a limerick:
I could not see anything one day
I've gone blind, I heard myself say
But then someone lifted
And something was shifted
My own arse was in the way!
A desperate attempt at an on-the-spot limerick ... lol!
