Another UAE blog blocked? :: UAE community blog

Writing at UAE community blog, Secret Dubai reports that a blog is being blocked by the Proxy.

The post that is alleged to have caused that action was a critique of Etisalat. I'd rate the blog as PG (language), but lots of blogs in the UAE qualify for that rating.

UPDATE: 7DAYS - Anger as Etisalat shuts down local website

Etisilat is the sole provider of telephone service and internet service in the UAE. It blocks websites that are deemed contrary to the cultural mores of the country. Last summer Secret Dubai was blocked and visits surged.
