Have you noticed that this blog discusses such an outrageous topics like child pornography, encourages terrorism and other things of public concern?
If not, apparently it does. Today I got several messages from people in different regions of Russia that the government has blocked localstorm.wordpress.com domain.
I have already written a number of times about how the government is using a pretext of guarding public from hazards on the Internet to go after everything they just don’t quite like:
- Shit is creeping up: government blocks Ukrainian IT portal
- Beware of a government putting its foot in your door
- Internet Privacy Level 2 for cheap
Now they didn’t like some blog on the WordPress.com platform and did nothing better than blocking an entire WordPress gateway:
So… This blog might not be easily available for everyone in Russia. When you go to localstorm.wordpress.com you might see a warning suggesting that it is blocked by a court rule.
Hmm… I told you so, guys. They will not do this smarter. Hopefully it will not go that far to the whole .com zone.
