UAE Censors and Blocks flickr.com
How sad for the 2,000+ members of our photo-sharing community, <a href="flickr.com, when the state-run ISP for the UAE has again blocked flickr.com! Our whole community suffers the loss of this stiffling of freedom of expression and just the mere freedom to SEE has been cut off! This image below is one of hundreds that have been created as protest to the ban. If you click on the link of the image, it will take you to my photo stream on flickr where you will find links to every one of these images in my collage.
I hope that I'll be able to write another post later that will celebrate a change of policy. It appears that the state-run ISP considers flickr to be a "porn site" for the nudity it allows in some images. There has been a crack-down on actual porn that gets into public view on flickr, but I believe that even the rare slips help to cause this ban for UAE members. More on the issue can be found in the group discussion for "Flickr Block in the UAE" group. You can reach that group from the link on the sidebar from my image.
