eldavojohn writes "Recently, the United States military has been trying to control what is relayed from troops abroad via the internet and now they're censoring what troops can access. In a memo[PDF], US Army Commander Bell announced that popular sites about to be blocked include: YouTube, Metacafe, IFilm, StupidVideos, FileCabi, MySpace, BlackPlanet, Hi5, Pandora, MTV, 1.fm, live365, and the photo-sharing site Photobucket. If you look at the users as employees, this isn't anything different from actions US companies are taking — however, if these sites are blocked during the entire time personnel serve, I could see it as more than a mere annoyance."
