Dubai blog blocked

The UAE's telecoms regulatory authority has blocked the blog Sorry Dubai, following a post that criticised the monopoly state telco Etisalat. The blog also attacked Etisalat's blocking of popular Internet telephony website Skype. UAE bloggers are in a nervous mood after this.

The blog, written by someone who goes by the name of FeedYourHead, has since deleted his blog, some of which can still be found in Google's cache. His posts were often very negative and always very spirited.
