Remember When ...

... religion was just an opiate for the masses?

Cat, a number of other people in Morocco told me that they can't open my LJ. Can you email LJ support below? Many thanks! (sorry about this but the email from your website bounced back.)

Support is unsure why a 403 message would be given to these people. Are they trying to access protected entries in your journal?

If not, could you please have them open their own requests, reporting their IP addresses, so that we could investigate further? As they will be unable to access the site, please have them email this information to, which will create a support ticket for them.

FWIW, C in R (and tickle, for that matter) I've been able to access my daughter's LJ all day (I'm guessing that's the blog to which you refer as your niece's). I guess the problem must be local (ish) to your area...

It's local - I haven't been able to access Tickle's or Anne's over the past year.

I couldn't open any LJ sites in Morocco, either - it's been rumored that Menara is blocking them.

I'd love to hear some cat in rabat wisdom on the latest in christian/muslim dialogue. i read pope benedict's speech and it felt like i was in a graduate seminar. I could not comprehend it, let alone find anything offensive to islam in it. The news accounts [bbc, cnn] are as enlightening as watching a group of third graders having a fight.
and if you have no wisdom, more pithy irony would be great.

Hi Cat, hi angel_fish,

I'm just checking out the German original text of the lecture that Pope Benedict XVI gave in the Regensburg University and that caused such a fuss...I'll give you my feedback later on my blog.

Cheers and b'salaama

Tickle: no response from Live Journal yet. I emailed them 2 days ago.

My wife has been reading me bits of your blog for awhile, finally time for me to make direct contact (if that is possilble in the anonymous internet world). Strange to think that I may have bumped into you and do not know it.

It amazes me how hypersensitive Muslims are. Why is this? There is the Bernard Lewis theory of humiliation at the root of Arab reaction. But I wonder if there is also some measure of reflection taking place in the private world and therefore hidden from the public world we see. Are Muslims beginning to take responsibility for the weaknesses of the Muslim countries? That would be nice after years of blaming the great white devil for everything that happens.

Hi Neighbour ... you didn't once try to hit when you were parking your car on a sidewalk, did you?

Thanks for the insights - will definitely look into Bernard Lewis.

From LiveJournal:
I'm sorry, but it appears that there are country-wide restrictions
preventing you from accessing LiveJournal; we aren't preventing anyone in
Morocco from accessing our site. As such, we regret that there isn't
anything we can do to assist you, since this block is outside of our

... poop (from me not Live Journal)
