Craiglist ban

Why is Craiglist banned by Etisalat? :-(

maybe because there's a section for "casual encounters" not to mention m4m, w4w, etc...

However, there does exist a Craigslist (it's Craigslist, not Craiglist) for Dubai, accessible through non-Etisalat connections. Not surprisingly it doesn't seem to be overwhelmed with ads.

It is not blocked.

Fix your proxy settings.

http://dubai.craigslist.org/

is accessible, although the dating link is blocked

blocked for the same reason expatriates.com is blocked...
Lots of nice personals there with pix and numbers... and ermm... quite a few adverts for 'erotic services' with cellphone numbers :/

Because pornographic photos are frequently posted in the "personal" adverts

More interesting why is a Goggle search for dating banned by etisalat but not one for sex?

craig's list must have been banned for the same reason Google's translation service was banned --- it's simply too useful to allow.

You're likely alienating some poor goon from his right to work.
