Our government talks all the time about shutting down so called “terrorist” web sites. Of all my web sites and blogs I don’t understand why my books would be considered terrorist or supporting terrorists as our government depicts it. But they have closed my book promotion web site down.
The internet censors decided to freeze my book web site. If you go to my site on http://www.freewebs.com/ponnary/ you'll see that it is frozen and there is a big page that tells me this. And when I clicked to see why—they told me my e-mail address is invalid. They won't tell me why the shut it down.
But I know from seeing that Freeze message on other sites that it is a government shut-down of sites they don't like.
I've seen that on some radical sites, such as the Maoist Communist Party Manipur, http://maoistpartymanipur.webs.com/. Just click on that site and what a coincidence—it is the same message I got. This is not the first time I have seen this page and this message. So I have to wonder why my government forced the shutdown of my page. It is not the only time this happened and I’m sure it won’t be the last.
So much for US freedom of speech! That freedom is a joke like most of our other US rights.
