Libya blogs on hold

Last night all articles about Libyan freedom fighters have been deleted from this blog. We got messages that they endangered the people who tweet from inside the country. That is the least of our intentions. If so, we seriously apologize.

Yes, it is dangerous to share information from a country under siege, bullied by an unscrupulous dictator. The only reason one does this is in hope for change. Change can be brought about by openness, free press, writers, tweeters, bloggers telling the world.
That is what we do @nonfiXe.

Freedom of expression is what the Libyan tweeters lack and what we defend in all honesty and with all the rights and wrongs that go with it.

The blogs about the Libyan freedom tweeters are offline for now. This does not mean we forget about them. A lot of people all around the world are on the look out for the freedom fighters to support and protect them.

No dictator can hunt down innocent men and women unpunished. No dictator can capture ideas or prevent them to spread.
