Iran has ordered all Iranian ISPs to filter and block the popular blog roll hosting service blogrolling.com.
The service is said to be popular among Iranian bloggers, the largest blogging community in the Middle East.
The Committee to Protect Bloggers writes that many Iranian bloggers perceive this as an ‘attack’ on the Persian blogosphere.
“I don’t know what would happen next, but this is just the beginning,” the writer of ‘Persian Buddy’ wrote in his blog. “Soon they are going to filter blogger.com itself and we can do nothing about it,” he wrote.
