Malaysia Today blocked! Order from MCMC?

The audacity of them blocking Malaysia Today. Indeed I feel that my constitutional right has been violated, big time. Is this some kind of punishment for the most embarrassing and humiliating rout in Permatang Pauh?

Controversial online portal Malaysia Today had its access blocked by the country’s largest internet service provider (ISP) TMnet.

“It is being blocked because we found that some of the comments on the website were insensitive, bordering on incitement,” he told Malaysiakini.

The curb however does not appear to be enforced by other ISPs and users are able to access Malaysia Today.

As at 4pm, a check by Malaysiakini showed users can still access Malaysia Today through three other major ISPs – Jaring, Maxis and Time.

This is believed to be the first time the government-linked telecommunications giant has imposed such curbs against a non-pornographic website, posing questions as to whether the government is reneging on its no-Internet censorship pledge.

Under the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) Malaysia 10 Point Bill of Guarantees, the Malaysian government promises to ensure no internet censorship.

The domain name – http://www.malaysia-today.net – has been unaccessible to TMnet subscribers since yesterday evening as a result of the blockage – known technically as ‘DNS blackhole list’. [See full image]

    When YM RPK(MT) speaks & tell & shows the truth, MCMC(another UMNO/BN toolsheet)is being used to check on it.
    When you have done no wrong & cover-up, abuse of power & corrupted, you need not be afraid.
    Your very action clearly shows that you are corrupted, abuse power & cover-up criminal acts by those of you who in the corridors of power.
    Truth speaks louder & louder each second, each moment & day to day.
    Look around you & the world, one day will be payday for good or evil done. So be repent before it is too late.
