It's already been blogged by Dhofari Gucci, Angry in Oman, Jet Driver & Muscato and tweeted by @blu_chi.
Omantel have kept their pimp hand strong, and given the Dragon a slap.
The dragon finally got blocked. My guess is that the women kissing picture probably provoked enough people to email through and say that they don't like that. Due to the time-frame of the story, and the fact that it's a Saturday (meaning the abuse email account had time to fill up over the weekend) it's probably only just been done because the people that control the filters at Omantel just noticed it. Or perhaps the filters are automatic based on the number of requests for a site to be blocked. Who knows?
So what's going to happen now?
One of a few things I guess.
1. Nothing, it will stay blocked.
2. It will stay blocked, but the dragon will start a new blog.
3. It will get unblocked.
If you want to do anything to help in the unblocking - fill out the form and submit it, as it's likely that if Omantel censorship team keep getting requests they'll open it again. Unless, of course, an instruction from high up has been issued, and then it'll never get opened again.
Gotta love censorship, not.
