Answering E-mails on Site Blocked and a Cup of Coffee…

Over coffee this morning I was doing some thinking’s about a few e-mails. After being asked more than several times by e-mail how we knew we were blocked and not just hosting problems? Also asked was how could they block just one single site? Those are fair questions…

Answer: A website is made up of various files and in our situation with WordPress we have what is called an index file. Files have a setting to change the readability of them. The host was changing our index file to unreadable. They physically blocked our index file. They did this from higher up than what we have access to on the server. I tried to change this file back myself but they refused to allow it to be changed. Then they would change the file themselves and allow us access, after prodding by me over the legalities of what they are doing. That is how we knew that the host performed the block themselves. If index file was unreadable, the whole blog was unreadable and that is how they affected only one blog out of all that we have. It was a direct targeting of Windows to Russia…

Hope that answers the e-mails that we got about this issue…

Something that needs to be realized by people who have a website on line. You never have total security from being shut down. You only can take the best and strongest precautions that you can, to circumvent said shut down. In our case we have now removed one more way that the USA can pull the switch when they decide to censor a website…

What was happening was a deliberate block of Windows to Russia and this was done with the hope that I would not see it for several days. If we had been on vacation or something and a way from the computer for days. Then yes it would have worked…

I have seen a lot of this happening anymore…

Windows to Russia!

  1. every time i want to learn something good, i access your website, because of the great structure and coherent ideas please keep providing such good information.

  2. The U.S. claims to support free speech, but it commits censorship. I’m glad that your blog is still on line.
