I was too lazy to go buy the papers today so I thought I’ll just read them online. But rather weirdly I could access neither the Sunday Leader nor the Sunday Times websites through my SLT connection. My first impression was that the sites could be down, but on a Sunday?the most important day for them. I was quite puzzled until someone commented on my blog and the referral to that was from the Kottu section on the Sunday Leader website and somehow I was able to visit the site through that link. What really is going on here? Is SLT blocking the newspaper sites as well? If it is the case not to be outdone by the media censoring elements I resorted to a ‘proxy by-pass’ used by the Chinese and it worked, using it I can view both websites with no problems. But still, shocking how far the government would go to stop us from receiving information, now resorting to Chinese help to further restrict us. But thanks to some other Chinese I could read my newspaper and even visit a certain other website blocked by the government.
