Since I started contributing at the CPB site, I have been struck by the length people would go to stop others from airing their views. It is very sad indeed that there is even a plan in Iran to pass laws that would sanction the execution of bloggers deemed errant.
TechCrunch today wrote about the dangers of blogging focusing on the WIA report in which 64 blogggers have been arrested so far world wide. There are more of these cases than one might think and the funny thing is that it is not only, so-called dictatorial governments that arrest or threaten bloggers and website publishers but also individuals and otherwise democratic and free societies like Canada.
Such a sad state of affairs.
