Further to the YouTube Blocking Story

Following up on the massive protest yesterday against what seems to be an individual irrational decision, coming from an immature person at the Ministry of Communications, Al-Jarida is providing us more details on the story. My doubts about the letter yesterday turned out to be true. The letter, which seemed very unprofessional sent by a single person, was sent by the head of control department directly to all ISPs for immediate execution, by passing the minister for approval.

The blocking was freezed yesterday for further discussions, which while good, pretty much surprises me even more. First of all, you don’t fire up an official letter to the ISPs and then reconsider. Secondly, if the letter was not signed by the minister, this letter has zero legal value, and belongs to the trash. The person who is on purpose, and still defending his ground, by passing all legal procedures, to block the third largest popular site in Kuwait, from an individual thinking (if that’s what you wanna call it), considering him self probably so smart with this crap, should be punished and blocked from his position, stripped out of all responsibilities, after showing such immature level in his management.

Kuwait is a multi-million nation, and if one small individual unkown person thinks he can run the country as he likes, think again! If you don’t like YouTube, don’t use it. However I am hundred percent positive, when this chaos is over, you could see this very same person using YouTube for his own interest.

    you know what would be really awesome? xD

    If he gets uploaded on youtube just for wanting to take it down xD

    gaaaaah the irony! xD

    Maybe we should do it… and then… show it to him.

    Strangely, that would make very… very happy.

    Let them block whatever they want. There’s always a way around.

    The Question is:
    What is going to happen to him now? Nothing! He is probably boasting now about how he was the last man fighting for the sake of religion and how everyone was against him when he did all he can in this world gone bad.. *shakes head*
    Anyone interested in forming a brand new country? I heard there are some islands for sale somewhere… all we need is a few people who have no idea how to do things yet look mean and feel full of themselves, those who are interested upload a video of yourself sitting behind a desk looking important.. We’ll get a consultant to do the judging on our behalf..

    Bashar, sorry to hijack your comment post!

    MacaholiQ8: Well we are against the principle of it!

    Ali: I would give you a user to write whenever you want if you like. And as to what happened to him, they literally said it was an individual effort from Islamic motive, like it was a good thing. And Haif Al-M6ere is insisting on YouTube blockage.
