In your face!

I've been unable to read my blog for quite some time. At first, there was a report of a distributed denial of service attacks against popular blogging sites, so I thought, OK. But DDoS attacks shouldnt last weeks. So, there was another report that some ISPs have banned some blogging websites because one blogger posted a blasphemous cartoon to his blog.
So, I thought, OK. You're challenging me with something even a school kid could bypass. Have a look at the following snapshot dated a few minutes ago. (I havent uploaded it to my webserver yet, but I'll do it tonight insha Allah).

Anonymous HTTP proxies can easily bypass these trivial, childish, and foolish bans. You cant sensor stuff anymore. You block one medium, it'll pop up on another. Even if you ban HTTP traffic completely, I can view web pages through email. So much for your sensorship. Grow up! Some ISPs havent banned it. Let's be frank here. How many ISPs block pornography? They know that it is the number one thing that people are after. They are in a business of making money, not losing it.

Good to see you blogging again. The ban on blogs and websites is absolutely absurd. I guess it part of the government's "Enlightened Moderation" program.

Why arent a MVP testing the new IE 7.0 ?

@Anonymous

I did not know that it was mandatory for an MVP to test out IE 7.0.

Anyway, IE 7.0 is still in its beta and has a lot of problems. For testing, it might be ok; but I have found after I installed it that it replaced my previoud version of IE 6.6
So, whenever my web browser generates an error, all the pages that I have opened in a single instance of the window close down too.

i never said that it is mandatory, i just thought for a moment that techies are more enthusiastic to use newest things .. but i guess i was wrong , sorry ..

anyways if someone is not using it due to instability of the product , I have my doubts that we can ever have a bug free version ! (by bug free i mean less than 2 critical updates every month)
