Stand strong, Google. Glad to see you are supporting free speech around the world.
Good for you, Google & Blogger! The internet stands for nothing if not freedom of expression. We must stick together on this.
The bigger question is "How to stop these attacks?". Smaller hosting platform neither have the technology and nor power to withstand ddos. Moreover the requests coming from different zombies whose owner doesn't even know that there computer has been used at all.Can google share their knowledge and resources with others to make them strong enough to withhold resistance in these scenarios?
Love the stance... And I love that the Internet and Google are enabling international free speech. Anything technology can do to enable citizens under oppressive rule to get their voices heard by the world is a huge step in the right direction.
All I want to say is, thank you.
google i really want to work for you
the best first sentence in the article about Georgia ever: "...citizens of Georgia, a country located in Eastern Europe..."! Electronic media is a new weapon and Internet is the battleground. Last time Georgia won the media battle, but this time around normal warfare tactics kicked-in and they got covered by preventive artillery fire.
Thank you for being who and what you are. Keep the internet free from the suppressors of freedom
"Georgia, a country located in Eastern Europe..." Georgia looks like it is located in Western Asia not Europe. Take a look at Google Maps http://bit.ly/vE6hB and you will see it just is not Europe, unless Iraq and Iran are also in Europe.
Darnell said:"I love that the Internet and Google are enabling international free speech."Google "enabling free speech"? Like it does in China?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google_China#Controversy
To bad google could not take the same stand when it came to China
I don't disagree with Google's stance on whether to be censored in China or to deny some search results with a verbose warning.Though it does make it tougher to get to specific pieces of information within China, it's better that the Chinese people have advanced search technologies available to them with some results being censored than for those technologies to be banned completely.And, the issue I see in this case is that some online services are banning specific users who bring their enemies with them to the online services they utilize. If Google is helping to ensure these individuals can get their word out rather than backing down for the sake of avoiding a DoS attack, I applaud them and any other services which follow suit.
It's stuff like this that makes me proud to be a Google user. =)
Thanks to all for support!
