India Blocking Blogs

I do realize this is not Diamond Mountain news. Consider it a technical post. As of this week all blogs hosted by numerous services, including this one (hosted by Blogspot), are completely becoming blocked in India. I'm not proposing any political activism I just want to let everyone know so you can tell your friends abroad, as we probably all have a few.

For more information on the sites posted and why check out this article.

Update: July 20: Looks like the above ban has been lifted (link to new article)

Hi Rama,

So does that mean you haven't had any trouble with Blogspot being blocked in India. Have news services (and me) been misinformed?
