    Thanks for your feedback. Would you know if the ban was officially lifted (by another admin order) or is it due to the current proxy problems experienced by Batelco?

    aldemokrati.org seems to work fine (I’m using a lightspeed connection)
    but some of the other sites (I didn’t try them all) were indeed seemed to be blocked as I kept getting a screen with a network error from my router..

    Thank you Yagoob. Yes some of them are currently unblocked, but my information suggests that there was no administrative order going to the telcos to unblock them. Until that happens, they could well be blocked on a whim. Hence, this list will remain unless I get a clear feedback that the MoI actually instructed the telcos to unblock them.

    Do let me know if you come across a blocked site though. I much appreciate your feedback.

    updated, thanks Hussain. I’ve dropped متديات مملكة البحرين and شمس البحرين المشرقة as they have both been unblocked according to this morning’s Alwasat and added VOB.org to the blocked list.

    yes, there are some abandoned and phished sites on the list, to be sure, but the thing is that they are still blocked by administrative order which I am against. So as long as that admin order is in place, regardless of who the current occupant is, it is blocked by that order.

    Agreed. It was just an informational posting.

    Time for tea and pastries. So much for my waistline. But the CO has called and it would be rude (brave?!) to refuse.

    Why dont you people try to use a tunniling software.

    Like HTTP tunnel, its free. Here in Europe we use it in schools, you can use it to dayligth net
