They hate Flickr for it's Freedom.
(and government controlled monopoly) in the United Arab Emirates
has decided to ban access to Flickr for it's citizens, apparently due to the complaints of a couple of UAE expats
in the UK
. Of course, said blockage won't apply to them. Most interestingly, they blame the rest of the world's non-flesh-fearing photographers as opposed to their ISP (and by proxy their own oppressive government.) Now Flickr joins Skype
, AtomFilms, Friendster, AOL, and anything from Israels top-level domain, as outlawed content and services
in the UAE (related study here
). Well, if they don't care, why should we? Via linkfilter
