Facebook partly blocked by Etisalat

Etisalat has once again managed to block an integral part of facebook (or was it just MySpace I'm thinking of the last 5 times they managed to do something like this?) (http://static.ak.fbcdn.net/); this is preventing CSS and other design elements from the website loading properly.

Yes it is banned... apprently the warning by brwosing is giving me is that JAVASCRIPT is disabled please enable.

Has DU enforced this as well? Anyone in the DU area facing similar issues?

Initially I'd thought it was something to do with my java script not being enabled. Glad to know it isn't the case.

Anyway, lets try and look at the bright side, this way all the face book addicts will try and do something productive. :o [I kid]

Actually you can view it properly if you go through a proxy, but you can't post messages on walls, etc.

I hope this isn't a permanent thing though.

Come on now, its not like anyone will die because of not having access to facebook !

Move on, there's a lot more to life than facebook.

anon above, there is much more to life than the internet, too. As far as I'm concerned, it's really anti-social, so I call for a block on the whole of the internet too. Just not facebook (yet) because I need time to save all my friends' contact details. I wish things were like in the old days, where telephones and emails didn't exist. Those were happy days!
