It looks like MeskelSquare has at last joined the list of blogs to have been wiped off Ethiopian computer screens. I say 'at last' because it was getting a bit embarrassing being the only one left behind.
Here are the Seminawork and Urael reports to back it up. (Of course, you won't be able to use those links if you are in Ethiopia. Then again, you won't be here in the first place if you are in Ethiopia.)
I can vouch for Urael's description of internet traffic over the past week by the way.
The weeks that the blogspot sites were not blocked, the internet in Ethiopia was considerable slower than the usual also not fantastic speed. This changed this week, normal instead of extreme turtle speed again, and the blogspot sites are blocked again.
So goodbye Ethiopian blog readers - unless you are versed in certain dark proxy arts. From now on in it will just be me and you wonderful guys from Washington DC.
