in indonesia we have this yayasan nawala which runs a proxy to which every single internet service provider must point there traffic. the body's bestowed godly power to block any sites it deems harmful like porn, gamble, phising/spam, malware - they block anything without court order, according to their heart's content like spamhaus. later, becuz ppl are still able to access the forbidden sites through proxies, they also ban proxies. not so long ago even innocent sites like way back machine and coral cdn and google's cache: keyword (dunno how they blocked a specific keyword while still allowing another to pass) were inaccessible. even opera mini and nokia xpress (nokia's browser) r censored. i wonder if my country wants to imitate less democratic countries that mindlessly censor their internets.

fortunately cyberbunker doesnt do business here cuz if it does it'll be busy ddosing on daily basis slowing down our already-laggy connecshun.
