Facebook has been blocked in the UAE. [Feb. 3rd, 2008|09:14 am]

Facebook has been blocked in the UAE.

Edit: I read that it's unblocked again. There's a theory it was blocked to reduce traffic since service is compromised in the whole country. It's not my theory.

There's an even more beautiful conspiracy theory. It involves the NSA, and it goes like this:

1. Cut cable at point A, which takes time to reach
2. Cut cable at point B, distant from point A
2a. Note that (2) is undetectable, since the cable is out anyway
3. Splice cable at point B, including a little cabletap device
4. Wait for point A to be fixed
5. You now have a working cable you have a tap on
