us: U.S. technology has been used to block, censor Net for years
Internet users in Yemen can't get to beer.com because of technology from a couple of U.S. companies. Surely this is a human rights violation, keeping innocent civilians from a website devoted to beer and women. Why, the Yemeni Netizens -- all 150,000 of them -- are also blocked from getting to gayegypt.com. They're denied spikybras.com! Which, by the way, ya gotta check out -- it's hilarious, and no more racy than an I Dream of Jeannie episode.
