I just heard confirmed news that this site (Mahmood’s Den) will be blocked effective immediately, together with 6 others (don’t know which yet) by order of the Minister of Information.
The memo has been printed and delivered to all the ISP’s this afternoon apparently. I am yet to receive my copy.
But if I go off the air for too long, you know the reason, and it’s not inconceivable that prisons will be used to silence criticism.
You know what to do if this site DOES in fact become blocked… you know the required tools to unblock it.
