Iranians must be upset about the outrageous license fees too.

The Americans should probably invade Iran now, too... just to be on the safe side.

I wonder where all the "CENSORSHIP!! BUSH/ASHCROFT = MCCARTHY!!!"-folks went.

Bush and Ashcroft aren't responsible for censorship in Iran, silly.

Oh I get it now, it's "stop.censoring.us" as in "us", not "U.S."

If you have the ability to set up an anonymising proxy thingy, I'd say you should do so.

dagny: 'Iranian government censors free expression' is just a bit 'dog bites man', no? I'd like to know who's supplying the filtering software, though.
