Here goes,
In Saudi Arabia, as some of you know, censorship of teh intrawebz exists.
"Improper" websites are blocked by every single ISP in the country (such as porn, chiristian websites and the such...) This is really, really, stupid, and just pisses me off a lot, that in the 21st century, censorship of information still exists. Which leads me to my main issue

Ultimate-Guitar is now officially blocked in Saudi Arabia, with no explanation.
Sucks that my dad has to work here -.-

Just wanted to know what you guys think...

Use a proxy?

they probably don't find our lulz that funny and in saudi arabia if they don't find your lulz funny, no more lulz for you.

Well, if you're not there, then why does it matter?

Does your dad use UG?

EDIT: Do not read this post as ignorant. I think internet censorship is wrong, and I think Saudi Arabia is wrong. So there is no need to unleash a Meths-like flame-fest at me.

We may think we have it bad with censorship, but we don't have it bad at all.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

To the people who suggested proxies: I'm pretty sure the Saudi government thought of that too.

If my dad forbid UG to me I totally shouldn`t listen. I mean it`s your life, you live in a free country, and what`s wrong with UG? Ok, there are some 'wrong' threads but you don`t have to view them. Use this website for guitar and stuff like it should be and why the hell should your father forbid it?

i was about to call you a retarted moron, then i saw you were from holland, so i guess you mis translated that, his dad lives in saudi arabia, and that country won't let anyone get on UG, or lots of other sites.

Wait a minute....so IHATECHILDREN's earlier post is valid. Just how are you on at the moment? Do you dare to defy Saudi law?

I don't know why, but I burst out laughing when I saw that. Needless to say I understand zero arabic, so seeing 'jib jib jerakalah jib jib (blog)' seem inherently funny

If you're in Saudi Arabia right now, how are you on Ultimate-Guitar ?
#27
1. THEIR islam, is not the real islam
2. Hey, theres at least 10 other arab countries, who are in majority muslim, and are better developped. I dont see internet censorship in any country, but saudi arabia...FFS, havent went out with a girl since almost a year now (Men cant be with women they arent married to, or related to)

Just one more month till i get back to canada
#28
To get this clear, im on using a PROXY yes, thats only cause its still not blocked yet, only a matter of time before it is. I think their system looks up keywords in websites, and thats how they get blocked, so the website im using hasnt been scanned yet i assume.
Got it ?

#30
Saudi Arabia smells like feet. there. now they have a legitimate reason to block UG. im really thankful that im in a place where censorship is at a minimum.
#31
If I was stuck in Saudi Arabia, the least of my worries would be not being able to use UG.....

Im lucky im only living here temporarily, going back to Canada June 09.
Point is, for all the countries who argue other countries about Freedom of Speech, about Human Rights and all that ****, look @ saudi arabia for god's sake (or is the Fuel too important o.O?)
