I just got word that Jihad Watch is now viewable again at Fidelity Investments, where it was banned last week. I’ve also learned that the Federal Government ban is spotty, prevailing in some offices but not in others.
Many thanks for all your support on this. If you work anywhere that the site was banned last week (and if you see this perhaps at home), please try it again now and let me know. I’ve been emailing a web filtering corporation, and others have as well, and maybe our efforts are beginning to pay off. I’ll keep you posted, and thanks again.
UPDATE: More good news comes in an email from Jihad Watch reader Bob:
After reading about the banning of JihadWatch through many companies’ servers, I checked last night (7/5) to see if I could reach JihadWatch through Whirlpool’s servers. Sure enough, the site was banned. Then I checked CAIR’s site and sure enough, I was able to view that site (!).
This morning I planned on contacting the corporation’s webmasters asking them to either unban JihadWatch or ban CAIR…their choice. After just reading that the ban was lifting, I just checked JihadWatch again through Whirlpool’s servers and, behold, the JihadWatch site is now viewable through the company’s servers.
I’m setting a reminder to check that JihadWatch is available through the servers in the future. I can see the ban dropping back into place once the “bad press” has died down.
