Banned in Bahrain

Esra’a from Bahrain writes:

Dave, I write to inform you that I’ve been trying to access your site lately and have been receiving the 403 Forbidden error. Apparently access to your website is “denied.” I doubt it’s from your server. This isn’t a server error. Any other website in Bahrain that’s been banned receives this error, so I fear that your site might be amongst them.

Is it your host or our state-owned ISP?

Let me know. If I try to access this website in several other areas of Bahrain and fail, I will organize a petition.

And then this follow-up email:

Just called a few friends to check it out.

Your site’s definitely banned!

I have to check with our main ISP whether the problem is technical or “political,” if I can call it that.

Cool! Now I can add the slogan Banned in Bahrain to this blog. Has a nice ring to it.

I have always wanted to be banned somewhere. It means I am doing something right.
