At the moment, we have 1,070 pages, but make sure to focus on quality over quantity!

Internet Censorship

Wikipedia?

Certain pages on Malayasian subjects were recently discovered to be inaccessable from at least one ISP (singnet.com.sg).

Notes:

  1. The page can be viewed by changing the url slightly: such as encoding a few characters in hexidecimal, or using the history to find an oldid, or using a google cache. The same pages with the same content are also not inaccessable on other wikis, making this seem suspiciously targeted if it is indeed censorship.
  2. These return a connection timeout or blank page. This is in contrast to other blocked internet sites, such as pornography, which will return a message such as "The site you requested is not accessible. For more information please check Media Development Authority."
