Submission + - Another blow to Irish online freedom->

Diabolus Advocatus writes: As an Irishman I am more and more disgusted every day by blatant disregard of net neutrality and freedom of speech in Ireland. Whether it's eircom censoring thepiratebay and cutting off users accused of filesharing or the blasphemy law introduced in 2009. Previously, it's been discovered from documents obtained through FOI that the Irish government is in discussions regarding implementing a filter like China, or Iran. Disgusting and worrying.

The latest development in the restriction of Irish internet use is from mobile operator o2, which has blocked access to the popular image hosting site i.imgur.com. As usual, the excuse is 'dear god, think of the children' pushed by the masterminds of the blockade and self-appointed internet police — The IWF .
