Friendster and Myspace have been blocked!
As far as I concern, this two website has been blocked in UIA computer labs.
What else? Why did they block these websites?
I heard about it one week before Eid Mubarak from my friend, Johnna. At that time Sis Zakiah from S-DEV also had confirmed that even S-DEV office also suffer the same circumstances.
But since I haven't experience that until today, while I was checking my mail, of course its a routine to check my Friendster simultaneaously. Then, after I enter Friendster's URL, the page goes to the "Yahoo! Search Result for Friendster". I tried to click the available link at Friendster.com but it doesn't work. After that, I tried to enter Myspace.com. The same Yahoo! Search Result came up.
Why did they do this to us? From my observation, most student spend lots of time in the computer lab for this purpose, cyber networking, for hours maybe! Then, someone who really want to do his/her assignment or research urgently cannot use the computer, give suggestion to the ITD Division to ban these websites. Hmm.. its just my theory.
So as we know the consequences.. what can we do? Cybercafe will gain its popularity again since there's no limitation of these websites there. Right now, its OK for me because I'm using the internet at home. Then, I couldn't correspond with my friends in UIA if they used to use the computer lab. Its kinda burden for them to use the cyber cafe. Money! I even couldn't check out my friends' blog.. those who blog in Friendster. So, let's change to other blog engine!
