As I Suspected…

by Nathan Hamm on 5/27/2005

The Peace Corps isn’t just cracking down on volunteer blogging in Uzbekistan, but also in Kyrgyzstan. Some volunteers have been asked to remove posts having to do with the revolution. I’ve been asked by a volunteer to remove a link to avoid association with this site (which I honestly find to be a little overzealous on the volunteer’s part…).

I see where the Peace Corps is coming from on this. It sucks and I hated having to deal with these rules when I was a volunteer. So, volunteers, if you want an anonymous blog, it might be worth checking out Third Goal.
