No One Expects The Indian Inquisition!

"Nobody expects the Spanish Indian Inquisition! Our chief weapon is censorship…censorship and repression…censorship and repression…. Our two weapons are censorship and repression…and ruthless incompetence…. Our *three* weapons are censorship, repression, and ruthless incompetence…and an almost fanatical devotion to the Muslims…. Our *four*…no… *Amongst* our weapons…. Amongst our weaponry…are such elements as censorship, repression…. I'll come in again."

But, you know, there are tigers in the thicket. Is there a leg in there?

Really, I do not know enough about India to cast blame any farther then the government and the Muslim population (hey, did you see this yet?) From what I have read at most Indian blogger sites, they are appalled and dismayed at what has happened. They are asking if there is someone else up there they can talk to.

You see, our experts describe the Indian government as appallingly dull fellows, unimaginative, timid, lacking in initiative, spineless, easily dominated, no sense of humour, tedious company and irrepressibly drab and awful. And whereas in most professions these would be considerable drawbacks, in chartered accountancy government they are a positive boon.

Me, I am still amused. I'm don't feel I am being oppressed by the Indian gov't. I would be even more amused if the original news report spelled my site name correctly Bye But I'm not donating my liver to get it corrected.

Editor saw a huge traffic lift. Lucky bastich!

Even Kos gets in the act, at least with a Diary post

See, the problem is that they just aren't wearing enough hats. That, and rabbits.

(Gee, think they'll lift the ban now? Sealed)

    You’re probably the one who started the whole problem. According to NY Times article, July 20th:

    QUOTE: “In an e-mail sent early Thursday, an official at the Consulate General of India in New York said that the order to block a handful of Web sites, including the popular blogspot.com, which hosts thousands of personal Web logs, had been prompted by the discovery of a Web site that contained “two impertinent pages” rife with material containing “extremely derogatory references to Islam.”

    Bad pirate.

    The least that they could do is reference the nasty little page of photoshopped Korans in the toilet ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey, I wonder if I can get an interview in the Times? Wouldn’t that be a hoot?

  3. Improper Reads and Other Stuff…

    Improper Reads….just some fun linkage for all you crazy cats out there in blogoland….

    I am so proud of you. I’m proud that I know you. I am humbled by the status you have obtained. It’s not just anybody that can get banned in India.

    You must be a very very good pirate!

    Wow. I’m speechless!

    Hey at least I’m meeting new blog authors this way. What a hoot! My traffic has gone way up since this broke.

    For my next trick, I want to get banned in Florida. That way I have an excuse to take a vacation ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You are absolutely right in your commentary about the Indian ‘Politician’ and further more I would like to add that due to the wretched nature of the system(Democracy-Curse thy noble heart! ) the illiterate masses( mobs ) have a greater voice than the knowledgeable and the initiated drowning out the voice of reason over and over again. Hopefully the press can utilize its sway over public opinion and make these pencil pushers take notice.

    In a country of over 1 billion the vexations of a few millions is insignificant.
