Blogspot banned yet again

The cat and mouse game continues as the PTA once again blocks the blogspot.com domain after opening it for about a month or so. Why did they do this again? Maybe the unbanning was only to project a better image at ITCN Asia. Maybe the ban is to prevent the spread of criticism about the government's recent actions (such as the killing of Nawab Akbar Bugti, the rebel tribal leader).

Whatever the reasons, censorship is not the answer and only serves to annoy people like you and me. This is like locking up a whole town because one or two people committed a crime. What are they thinking?
