Charles Johnson: web censor

The hypocrisy of Mr C.F. Johnson aka 'the Lizard King' knows no bounds. For the umpteenth time he moans about a country, an ISP or web content filtering program blocking access to his site. The latest culprit is "a company called PureSight that screens web content for 'compliance with Internet usage policies'". Presumably hate sites like LGF fall into the non-compliant category.

What Johnson fails to mention is that he himself is in the business of blacklisting web users so that they can't access his site. Yes, that's right, the man who bangs on about the evils of web censorship when he's the victim is quite happy to prevent those who criticise him from accessing his site, presumably because he can't handle what they've got to say. He also has a habit of redirecting incoming traffic from 'hostile' sites (such as this one) to the web pages of the IDF.

Well, thankfully there are ways around such petty censorship, n'est-ce pas?
