I don't mean to post offtopic, but this is something that possibly affects you, so I thought you should know.

Maybe you already know about this, and if so I apologize.

Apparently, as part of its counterterrorism measures the government of India has ordered IPs to ban access to 17 popular sites and domains.

Among them all blogspot.com , typepad.com and geocities.com sites.

Check this out, along with stories in the Hindustan Times, and ZDNet

Apparently many of the individual sites targeted are anti-Muslim sites based in the US (The Jawa Report and The Pirate's Cove, among others) as well as militant Hindutva blogs and sites.

Personally, I have a big problem with the contents of those sites, but I would never want to deny anyone access to any of them, for whatever reason.

Just thought you should know, if you weren't already aware, why it is that you haven't been getting any traffic from the subcontinent lately.
