On Blocking Youtube Day 9

Please Help Us

This afternoon I got called for a meeting about a new official paper from MoC dated yesterday asking us to "block certain specific links within". And then it goes on through 5 full pages siting URLs and "search key words" which produce objectionable material mostly about sexual content,
- some about "slandering local arabic/kuwaiti women's reputation"
- some were deemed "offensive to Gulf heads of state"
- the singer Maraam.
- kuwaiti whores running away from school
- kuwaiti girl from "al-Awaazim" tribe.
- then multiple links about gay/lesbian content.
- again siting some URLs offending Islam
- then a couple of Youtube links of a shiite cleric insulting Abu-Baker
- then more links of "western lisbianism" written in arabic "سحاق غربي" and "arab sex films".
- then more suggestions of search key words, like "لواط" "سحاق" فضائح" "كويتيات" ..etc
- followed by a mention of "" and how it allows you to bypass ISP's blocking mechanisms and that it should be blocked too.

All the links seemed to be compiled from multiple documents, scanned in very poor quality that is barely readable, one list was signed by a certain:
Khaled Jasem al-Mjaibel
tel: 7930342

and another signed by:
Abdel-Rahman Ibrahim al-Shemmeri
tel: 97906069

Both seem to be addressed to the Dept. Head of Survailance and Control of Phones:
Mr. Jasem Mohammad al-Kanderi (infamous from the previous paper)

We have not yet applied any blocking mechanism, mainly because we're worried that such a long list of URLs might overload the CPU usage on our caches. And we're not sure what to do honestly. And the decision seems to be definitely delayed until after Eid holiday.

why would they want to block maram?

This is ridiculous!

falantan said...

zamhareer: seems the guy searched for "ilfanaana maraam" and got some sexual results. I have no idea. its just mind-boggling.

amethyst: yeah, it's gonna be a huge problem for us now.

عتيج الصوف said...

Well..If you are going to block all these hits.

i recommend for you to block the messenger and paltalk..face book and however block

kel hatheela sites maloot kofar and sexual minded people !

guys your ministry is rediculous and stupid for trying to block these stuff !

what about the forums which contain violence stuff like Bin laden and Hezb allah ? what about the extreme Shiite and Sunnah who cuss eachother ?

guys please GET LIFE !

with all RESPECT for the undonable job !

Uturni said...

What if your ISP resists the blockage with the cache thing as excuse? what are their options?

ĐǻñĎõøðñ said...

erm...why maram?
(i read ur reply to zamahreer, bs im sure theyd get some sort of sexual result if they searched nancy 3ajram too!)


falantan said...

3atej elsoof:
we're seriously not sure what to do :(
the real reason I posted all these details about the paper is the weird and stupid pattern of items listed, not the blocking itself. shako 7okam dowal il5aleej mathalan??

when we do face unsurmountable technical difficulties, we'll simply tell them we can't. but what's bothering me is that the 5 pages of links are completely useless. if I block them tomorrow, how effective would that be?? they don't understand that the problem they want to tackle is way way WAY bigger then their small minds.

halli tshofeen :P
ana ma3aref maraam mino aslan.

Sh7afana said...

3ama b3ain ebleees-hum .. mabuga shay they want to censor it.. o b3dain mashoof ena youtube has any sexual content..

sugar said...

wala 7aala!!! ya3ni no matter what they do eli ib ye5tirib ib ye5tirib whether they block those stuff aw laa...oo ba3dain OLAAAAAAAAAAAA ako wayid ashya2 if they r gonna start blocking allah y3eenkom the list will keep on going on and on...

eshda3wa said...

i cant believe their still at it!

dont those imbeciles have a life!

falantan said...

sh7afana, sugar, eshda3wa:
that's my point, that whoever is making up these lists is stupid enough to think that blocking only these 5 pages is enough. it's not even the MOST offensive stuff out there. so I'm pissed that these idiots get to wield such power.

if there was a magic box that would block "everything bad" on the internet (keeping in mind that definitions of that vary) then I'm all for it, I'd turn it on tomorrow. but the fact is such a box doesn't exist. what's available is marginally successful solutions which we were using since 1999, before any other ISP even HAD any blocking, and before it was even a law.

and I'm pissed that these idiots don't bother to consult with ISP's to understand how complicated is the task, and how to do it. they just turn it into a political issue for MPs and throw it in our laps.

Jenayen said...

ah!, you know.i don't really care if they're gonna block maraam cuz i totally hate her with all my heart :D

but its kinda ridiculous.don't u think?
