Note: This may not affect the many who are stuck with that shittiest of ISPs, Weirdcall. [When I'd signed on for that service, I had no idea Go for Bullshit is what their slogan meant.]

As if the fact that the Son-of-a-Bush was soiling our soil wasn't sufficiently depressing for many of us in Pakistan, we now have some enlightened rectoid in the seat of power who has decided that Islam would be best served by moderating (read: blocking) Blogger.

Where does one even begin to start a discussion on the Freedoms of Expression-Speech-Press with Big Brother? If you are a blogger and are lucky (or frustrated) enough to host your blog on another site, NOW may be the time to shift your content.

It's going to be more difficult to block access to blogs strewn all over the place. You can still continue to use Blogger for posting, of course. Once you are hosted on your new blog site, or have used some method to get around this stupid act and accessed your current blog - strongly recommended to show the assholes in power, everywhere, that the Internet spells the end of censorship - you may wish to add a protest banner. For others, protesting through the Letters-to-the-Editor columns of national and international papers is suggested.

It is about time our leaders start facing reality. How long will the people of pakistan be silenced. We have to fight for our right to freedom.
