Blocked blogs

The recent directive by DoT, Govt. of India to the Indian ISPs to block particular blogs with objectionable content resulted in the blocking of the entire blogspot & typepad domains by most of the ISPs instead of using some subdomain level blocking. It seems that most of the Indian ISPs are ill-equiped to block certain sites and this resulted in the subsequent block on the whole range of blogspot and type pad blogs.

Meanwhile, you can access the blogspot blogs from here:

Update: As if this wasn’t enough, now the Indian Service Providers Association of India – ISPAI – has asked DoT to ban Skype, MSN, Yahoo and similar voice messengers.

If the current spate of events continues, there might be a ban on mobiles and what not !
