There were reports of the ISP representatives speaking of a certain order copy that they have received from the government directing them to block specific blogs. Instead, the ISPs choose the easy route and have blocked the entire blogspot.com domain. Amit in a more recent post confirms that the order from the government is a certainty but the way the ISPs have gone about implementing the order has raised hackles among the Indian blogosphere. Amit though has gone on to provide a detailed mechanism to access blogspot blogs like this one via alternative means in case you are not a position to access the posts. Will keep you all updated as the mystery unravels over the coming days.
