Blogs Banned In Dubai

Blog Banned In Dubai?

I thought this might happen…

I ran a search on Google earlier this morning for ‘blogging in Dubai’, to see what bloggers in this neck of the woods are up to. While some of them opened, others presented the above note…

Du is one of the country’s mobile operators and I’m guessing one of their internet providers as well. Browsing in general in the country goes through a national proxy in order to filter out inappropriate content but everything else I’ve been doing so far – my own blog,, flickr, twitter, the Irish Times, and a lot of my regular web haunts don’t flag anything… yet.

Note: managed to get a few more pics up on Flickr from the N95.
