Knocking Sense Into the Indian Government

RToaDM:

A few things I did not know before Government Of India ’s blanket-ban on Blogger/Typepad.— a ban whose supposed purpose we learn is to keep SIMI terrorists from passing love-notes between themselves.

1. SIMI-ians exclusively use Blogger and Typepad to communicate. Which is why these are the only blogging platforms that are blocked. SIMI stays clear of Wordpress (too dynamic for static fundamentalists), Rediff blogs (because they don’t like the template), O3 Indiatimes (because even they disapprove of a paper that sells editorial space), and Yahoo 360 (yes even SIMI activists have some sense). And like everyone else, they have never heard of MSN Spaces.

The Indian government has learnt its lesson. According to Slashdot, the ban has been lifted.

Update
The ban has not been lifted.
