WordPress Codex Site Blocked

In another astonishing move by the Government of Pakistan it appears that the website http://codex.wordpress.org where exists the help and documentation files of the ever popular Content Management System – WordPress have been blocked for all users and developers in Pakistan. This can be considered as a severe blow to the promotion of the IT industry in Pakistan.

    That is sad, we all can see, where Pakistan is headed, I mean, all these odd politians need a break, and should realize what to do and what to do, censorship on the internet should be a complete ‘No’ but damn we need a vast resource of energy to convince them that…pathetics.

    They blocked the codex…haha, what a shame !

    Then if someone hasn’t noticed yet, the whole of .tk domains have been blocked, atleast I donot see them working except for the http://www.dot.tk site itself, it’s some what in accesible :(…
    some one should show them the right path !

    I cannot even access my blog through the short url : http://www.dehog.tk, though it works fine on the norma URL.

    I would urge you to also take a stand against it.

    Thankyou

    peace

    This is Very Said, I can not open even a single website relating to .tk, I dont know why the Govt. is doing so but… they really disappointed me , as my own website was on .tk domain and now its not opening to me.

How LAME of the government to block Dot.TK domains!!! like WAT sort of beneficial is it? Pakistan got any issues with Tokleau? i dont know atleast!! but whoever implemented this, IS A REALLY SICK SON OF A *****
