have they blocked pkblogs.com too?

this might be paranoia creeping in, but since i haven’t been able to connect to any blogspot blog either directly or through pkblogs.com, i get the feeling they’ve got this one as well.

any updates people? have we been blocked out or is it just that i use a lousy isp?

    See, i already told you guys not to discuss ban thingie here because there is some PTA spy among us but nobody paid attention to my theory and huma kept posting about ban/unban(ing) of the site.

    BTW:pkblogs.com is not banned and I can access my blog.

    See i already proposed a theory that some PTA spy is among us who keeps sending news from the site to PTA director but nobody listen me and huma keeps posting about ban/unban(ing) of blogspot.

    Neither Wikipedia nor Pkblogs are blocked. It quite often happens that the server may go down resulting in time outs, the best way to verify a blockade it to run a trace-route to the IP address, if it has been blocked from Pakistan you will most likely see the traffic not going beyond either your own ISP or can potentially be stopped at PIE (Pakistan Internet Exchange) so next time if you suspect a problem verify the fact by a simple trace-route

    Speaking of slow internet, what lower DSL rates can we expect with the recent PTA tariff cuts? Any one got any idea?

    i can’t access pkblogs.com – haven’t been able to for about two weeks. my ISP uses a service called WebSense, which blocks ‘inappropriate’ pages – and about two weeks ago they stared blocking pkblogs.com, under the category of “proxy avoidance”. (google translator has also been blocked by my ISP – this happened way before the pkblogs.com block.)

    FYI, they also have categories such as “tasteless” which blocks a number of sites, including some humour sites.

    argh..!!

    any suggestions? basically someone needs to come up with another pkblogs.com type thing, until my ISP figues out that one too. :(

    The problem is with the pkblogs.com server, I think its not set up to take such heavy traffic.

    Just a thought.


  15. Tee (unregistered) on June 25th, 2006 @ 7:49 pm

    wasnt working at my end for a couple of hours too…..but its fine, so it probably was what illusionfs says.

    I dont think so alias.The only way to have low rates broadband connection is introducing new rivals otherwise i dont find any ray of hope.There is a competition required in ISP areas like mobile service industry.Telenor released another cheap package today named “TalkShalk” and its all due to tough competition.
