Muscat Confedential Not Blocked

Updated. Muscat confidential Not blocked anymore. May I proffer my most profound Oppologies to you all.

It was blocked for at least an hour this morning, but comments indicate it's Omantel incompetence as opposed to a delibrate action.

The immedaite assumption that the bock is an incursion on our already limited freedoms, is pretty valid when one considers Omantel's habit of blocking websites they think we are too stupid to be exposed to.

Once again, Sorry for Jumping the gun!

Messing up with filters

Probably OmanTel's filter is just acting up, because a lot of users from Oman have been reporting that some websites appear blocked to them sometimes, while they don't appear blocked to other OmanTel users at the same times. Either way, something must be wrong.

Also, he just updated his blog 2 hours ago so I don't think it's really blocked...

Guys, it's blocked. No Joke. Assume it's aspecific thing, since I can access all of our Blogger hosted blogs no problem.

It's just the Dragon who is blocked.

I clicked on the refresh button on the OmanForum webiste only to find it blocked by Omantel!

A short while later this problem did not exist. Must be week-end blues for Omantel!

Thing is that recently they unblocked many sites like jihad watch or those dealing with celeb gossips, so probably now they've gone banana

What I find funny, that the moment some site is blocked we jump to the conclusion that our freedom is taken away .. when most of the time its a technical issue.

I've experienced DNS error with Omantel when some sites r accidentally blocked and then available later.

Now this seems the rules in the filter are yet to be tuned up....

Tell me when u r ready Nawras..I'm medidating on u.

The world has a mute button, and, thankfully, Omantel has found it.

He's a whiny one that one.

I was searching for a 2001 BMW M5 Photo on Google images and guess what? the Important Notice page of Omantel pops up!

Score one for Omantel!

Now I know that the BMW M5 has been called a sex symbol in many a programs/magazines but it's a CAR for crying out loud!
