Just seen it myself. Could it be?!

Although visiting a link from an email notification shows prospect, once you're in, you still can't access the "Home" page.

This is bad...very, very bad.

only the homepage seems blocked...everythin else seems to be working fine...

Also the home page seems to be working for me in Firefox...not in IE

Stained said...

The home page is not working in Firefox also now....dammit

wtf. it isnt blocked anymore. what is wrong with these people. they need to either block it, or NOT block it, but they cant keep doing this. (as in they can, but they shouldn't).

or is etisalat suffering from conflicting "religious, social, cultural and moral values"? BAH!

Hi all.. FYI those of u on Etisalats' network, facebook is blocked. Those on Du network, no proxy server so facebook is open.

Yeah, this happens from time to time. I don't usually get on facebook from a laptop.. my choice is usually from my Treo phone. I don't do much there, but mostly messages between friends and the occasional silly status update.

Today morning, I noticed that it was blocked. I haven't tried it from the regular network (and I'm not sure if the proxy servers are the same or not.

This is all really silly. The TRA needs to grow up.

it's not blocked
loads perfectly (wth my Etisalat connection)

Harsha said...

I think it gets blocked automatically from time to time, probbaly due to those ads jumping around 'lesbians in Dubai'.. etc.

It always comes back .

Dubai Entrepreneur said...

harsha,

that makes sense. Perhaps fb users should petition fb to stop putting stupid ads and start filtering things.

On second thought.. did you say lesbians in dubai? ;)

Harsha said...

yep, you read that right.. these ads usually load before the rest of the page does.. so.. you tend to notice them.. theres more stuff like that

facebook and whatnot will be blocked soon because of all these "groups" - you hide them from it, etisalat will find you :P soon enough there will be a company (competitor) who wont use any proxy\leave it free :P
