Well, somebody has to pornalize the Anonymizer so the Iranians can enjoy
some porn.
The only really "controversial websites and subversive opinions" are the
porn sites.

Wow, when I read this, the irony radiating from the screen pressed my
shirt! 

Iran, not some no-name Palestinian, should be distributing Earthstation
5. 
 
Beware of Americans bearing gifts. Spam (better turn on SpamHashishin),
no pr0n and it probably still collects addresses. When it's convenient,
the FBI will shop them to SAVAMA. Ask yer buddies in the
Mujahideen-e-Khalq. Riding high in April, shot down in May. Download
Madonna mp3s, Mehran, and it's a 10-year jolt (literally) in Evin
Prison. Meanwhile...QUICK, surf to DeCSS and DVDCrack sites!

Shoot, how about citizens of domestic repressive governments? Pay for
Sherman Austin's appeal from the 1-year sentence for linking his anarchy
site to a bomb-making one.

Carl,

burning off residual paranoia from the ES5 Affair
