The Dragon Slain?

Another one for my Muscat readers.

Send some love to Omantel for the Dragon, folks. I just emailed them requesting an unblock. Can I urge you to do the same?

Update: Muscat Confidential is back after 12 hours of internet censorship. Yay.

My brain tell me otherwise though

Quill,

Thanks for the support for Muscat Confidential!

Although of course Omantel don't feel a need to actually justify such unilateral action, I suspect it was that photo posted a couple of days ago of two women kissing that did it.

Despite, IMHO, it being a pretty tame photo, the connection between it, the story it accompanied about an Omani bi-lesbian, and the fact that the girls looked Omani, offended some people (I think a small minority of my readers) and it was probably enough to justify a block.

FYI, the photo has now been removed, and hopefully Omantel will unblock me as quickly as they did Community Queer last month, in response to emails requesting that they do so.

I'll also be making some direct representations to the powers that be.

So, thanks for the support. If you want MC to be unblocked (especially now the suspect photo has been removed), just fill in the nice form provided by the Omantel net-censors!

Note: viewers from outside Oman are not affected.

Love the pic, BTW.

We'll see if it's St. George or the Dragon who emerges victorious!

Hopped over from the bullshitter's place. Neat blog. The recipe for chick lit was a good read. Also, I promise not to use yonder in conversation anymore. :|

Notgogol: Yay! I finally have a reader on sunday :) Thanks for the kind words. I'll have you know you've just made my entire week. (I thrive on praise :P)
