Iran holding victim's body for "bullet fee"

Post by ziggy on Tue Jun 23, 2009 2:09 pm

"Upon learning of his son's death, the elder Mr. Alipour was told the family had to pay an equivalent of $3,000 as a 'bullet fee' a fee for the bullet used by security forces before taking the body back, relatives said."

I was asked by a friend on Face Book to reset my location to Tehran and my timezone to Tehran time. The regime is trying desperately to close off all communication with the outside world and the hope is that the more people that do this, the slower the process for them.

I did it. Took 45 seconds of my time and didn't cost me a red cent.

What can a government do to keep certain websites from their country, if anything?

Yano, I've wondered that myself. I don't understand the how, but time and again we hear from news outlets and contacts overseas these sites are being blocked. This happens in China with some frequency.

The simple answer is, ....... said government mandates a "blocking filter" be incorporated in evey Internet Server on their in-country telephone network.

Or, in the case of China vrs. MicroSoft, China demanded that MS modify their IE if they wanted to sell product in China.

Now anyone having an I-Phone or equivalent with DSL (direct satellite link) then there is no way the government can "block" any transmissions, ..... but they can throw you in jail if they catch you.

If one has a DSL phone then in theory there is no place on the surface of the earth one can not make a phone call.

My internet server here (based in Parkersburg) blocks access to X-rated internet sites. It's his / her right- as it is their equipment through which I receive internet access.

If Congress mandated that ALL internet servers block access to X-rated sites, under penalty of castration or some such punishment, it would be akin to what Sam explains can happen almost anywhere that the authorities make it happen for political or other internet content they prefer the citizenry not have access to.

But then, there are those trusty proxy servers like http://www.aplusproxy.com/ ..................
