In the dark I'd like to read his mind

Note to the free world: Don't bother blogrolling Iran. Critical thought and indepedant thinking are no longer in vogue in that country.

At least that's the story according to the Committee to Protect Bloggers.

Shargh newspaper reports that Iran's Telecom company has ordered all ISPs to filter blogrolling.com.

I don't imagine freethought.com or thinkforyourself.org can be far off.*

Many bloggers perceive this as an 'attack' to the Persian blogosphere. "I don't know what would happen next, but this is just the beginning," the writer of 'Persian Buddy' wrote in his blog.
I can't help but be reminded that Iran sentenced a professor to death by stoning for the audacious crime of encouraging his students to think about what Islam asked them to believe. Holy Shi'ite, Batman! People might stop blindly accepting as truth whatever we tell them to believe!
