What worries me though is how out of control this is going to get. As always in their collective wisdom the government seems to have forgotten that they were responding to 20 (or-so) protesters who gathered outside the Lahore High court yesterday. Given the protests, LHC banned the website for some days (either 3 days or till May 31st. The exact details are as yet unclear to me). Once this happened, however people poured in to protest AGAINST the ban and responded by coming up with new and exciting ways to by-pass it. The government - unused to dealing with rebellious sheep - decided that this war is now personal. Now it's a quest to ENSURE that no one defies the regulations imposed by the PTC and dares to use websites not approved. On the other side, it's a stubborn insistence to log on to facebook NO-MATTER-WHAT and by doing so show the virtual finger to our governing authorities.
Now here's the rub: The government can ban (for the interim) whatever they want. Eventually people will find a way around it (they always do). But until they do I suspect this is warfare going to be a bloody nuisance of the highest order. Sigh.
