good for you...speaking up as a female, regardless of country, is just as important as what anyone else says, regardless of gender, ethnicity, location of residence, creed, etc....and those who are self-righteous need to look in the mirror before they open their mouths (or use their fingers) to degrade another human being+Ryan Murphy
the point is for us to know, and use our collective influence as a world-wide web global village to be the heralds and also to do what can be done by ordinary citizens of this world to help out those in the rest of our "village" regardless of circumstances or nationality, think how you would feel and what you would hope be happening behind the scenes of the web, if this happened to you and your country...wouldn't you want those of other countries to kibbitz for you and make web access possible again?+fares alahmad
in all countries, there are those who would like to make it possible for people to not have access to widespread communication and news media, so that they can filter what their residents and citizens hear, read and see...as such, it is a tool of dominance over a selected population by those who wish to have near total to total domination of that area...in essence, they want neither the world nor their own people to know what's going on both in the world and in that area. Syria is just the latest of a long line...hopefully those hackers that you speak of, who are not controlled by the Syrian government, will find a way to break through the media blackout, as well as those from outside of Syria are looking for a way to break through the media from the outside.
to start this post as was done, i believe was an indirect call to action to tear the wall down...the wall of media control. let's hope i am right, and that both ends working against the middle connect so that Syrians can once again be connected to the rest of the world and share whatever has been REALLY going on.
