Blog websites are blocked in India

Following the Mumbai blasts on 11-Jun-2006, access to all blogs and websites hosted on the following servers is currently blocked in India.

• xxx.blogspot.com/
• xxx.typepad.com/
• xxx.blogs.com/
http://www.geocities.com/xxx

For strange reasons, blogs hosted on WordPress, Livejournal, MSN Spaces, Rediffblogs, IndiaTimes and Yahoo 360° are spared by the Indian censors and they are still accessible in India.

The best part is that I am writing this blog now from India 🙂
This is possible because the http://www.blogger.com website, which is the Administration Website, is not blocked. So still we can post our blogs from India for outside world.

A great security implementation by Indian Govt!!! I am not sure whom to report this security hole!
