India Blog Ban Bugs

It seems maybe they need some help from expatriots living here to work out the kinks, eh?

Via Traderrob at Opinipundit: Fourteen days after the government asked Internet Service Providers(ISPs) to block access to four ‘‘offensive’’ blogs, India’s world-renowned computer techies have not been able to selectively ban only those websites. Instead, all of blogspot, geocities and typepad.com are only accessible in fits and starts throughout the country.

ISPs say this is due to technical constraints, but now, some experts are saying that the situation is more a sign of incompetence than technical constraints.

So, if you are in India and still reading this blog you are in big trouble Bub.
