    As per a directive issued by the government to ISPs, 39 Major forums and file sharing and hosting sites are to be banned/blocked. Most of these forums are the popular pRon forums that we all know of.

    However most of these file sharing sites are used not just for pornographic material but for regular files as well. Which is a major downer.

    Anyhow, here's to reduced revenues for the ISPs in India, since now people would be throttling back on their monthly internet access plans ;)

    Yea.. Seeing that a lot these days.

    These just blocked by a simple complaint .. Even a court order is not required I think.

    Recently even adf.ly got blocked. Its an advertisement based URL shortener used by many (warez)blogs ..
