Insight: Social media makes anti-Putin protests snowball | Reuters

An article about why LiveJournal has had trouble:

"... Many bloggers fear the Kremlin will act to reign in Russia's vibrant blogosphere, if it becomes too influential. Some bloggers have already been prosecuted offline under libel law and Russia's wide-reaching law on extremism. Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks - attempts to make a computer or network unavailable - have in the last few days shut down a large number of media websites. Russia's most popular blogging site, LiveJournal, was hobbled."

VIVA LA REVOLUTION!!!

Up with social media!

Down with government muzzles!

This is one of the reasons I stick with LJ. I believe in any platform a government wants to shut down.

I don't know what the Russians are saying, but I will defend with my annual fee their right to say it!
