Blogspot blocking lifted…

A few days ago, almost all ISPs in India blocked entire blogspot/typepad domains. Just a while ago, the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) has ordered the ISPs to block only specific sites, not entire domains.

Hopefully, the ISPs will act on this very soon.

Unfortunately, with several ways of bypassing the block, I don’t understand what purpose is being served by the block. In addition, the bloggers will keep coming up with new blog sites. Is this something more than just blocking sites to prevent the religious hate messages? Perhaps, we will come to know shortly!
