Ban...Why? What?

Been visiting the list of the Unholy....i,e the so called threat to national security blogs.

I checked out the blogspot pages...
What I saw...

Princess Kimberley

Absolutely Nothing in here...Apart from the heading Princess Kimberley and a name Tony...
May be this is code...very suspicious
Blogger shows an unexpected error when the profile link is clicked...

Pajama Editors

A very weird blog...Nothing anti Indian as far as I saw...Anti leftism is there...
Could it be a secret code? Could be...some of the stuff can be deconstructed to mean terrorism...

Exposing the left

This one seems credible to be frank. I mean not objectionable. A sort of news blog to be frank...
One reference to India...‘‘At least 131 killed in India train bombings: More humanitarian acts from the ‘Religion of Peace’.’’

Sarcasm at its best!
Terrorism? No way!
And they have acknowledged the ban and posted on it too.
Check the article in Indian Express about this.
If bans are placed on this...then every blogger who writes with sarcasm and acid have stuff to worry about.

Common Folk Common Sense

This is very weird. A chinese or japanse blog. Can't say whether this is terrorism or anti India...

These are things I saw first hand. We can interpret anything and apply deconstruction to get any answer. But a ban has to be credible. Even if this is a temporary blackout...

The questions are why this ban?
Even if Government meant these 4, we have the right to know the reason.
And for what was this ban?
To block terrorists?
Guffaw! Anyone with a slight ability to Google Search can circumvent this easily...Just to irritate the public...That is all that was accomplished...And oh yeah reduce my mighty hit rate! :P
