  1. At least there’s a method to the madness of the blockages you cite… I use TOT. TOT is today blocking a couple of sites…

    http://www.aljazeera.com/
    http://www.counterpunch.org/

    … which seem not to fit the ‘profile’ ot the Royalist Thai Taliban.

    But perhaps they do fit the profile of some mercenary cyber warriors hired by the Royalist Thai Taliban… who just blocked a couple of their own ‘favorites’ on the RTT’s dime while they were at it… who’ll notice two more among the… half million!?

    Like all the sites they block… they aren’t blocked really. Anyone determined to view them can do so. The only ones who can’t view them are the ones who don’t try… and they don’t try because they have no interest in them, So wouldn’t view them anyway, if they weren’t blocked.

    It’s like having a meeting with Major Major Major Major Major. It’s been awhile… I think the string of majors was five long. You could only see him when he was out.

    Which gets to the nitty-gritty. The Thais’ Cyber-wars are just like America’s wars… cyber and bloody and real.

    Forget the rhetoric. That’s all window dressing really. Eye-wash.

    The fact is there are strong militaries in each country and militaries need enemies ’cause wars are their bread and butter, and champagne and pate de fois gras.

    It’s all about money. All the pain and suffering in the world comes down to greed and sloth. If the easiest way to glut their greedy maws is to kill people… hey, nothing presonal, but you gotta die.


  2. Here’s another subversive site that’s blocked :

    It’s a satelitte picture taken on 4 March showing the ‘haze’ over Thailand.

    Hope you don’t find this comment in need of censorship as well.

    Once censorship starts…
