LJ at Your Own Risk

by Nathan Hamm on 5/24/2005 · 2 comments

Since there has been some discussion of web censorship in Uzbekistan on these pages lately and because I have heard some worries from people in Uzbekistan about monitoring of blogs, this story about Russian bloggers being expelled from school seems worth pointing out.

If you feel at risk, check out Global Voices’ anonymous blogging guide. It’s still a work in progress, but has some good pointers.

You don’t need to go to Russia to find students being expelled from their schools because of criticising their teachers on their blog, just go to France (although there it’s more of the ‘This is my maths teacher, I hate him ‘coz he give us 2 much homework’ kind)
