BBC – Surfers outside the US have been unable to visit the official re-election site of President George W Bush [here]. The blocking of browsers sited outside the US began in the early hours of Monday morning. Since then people outside the US trying to browse the site get a message saying they are not authorised to view it.
The blocking does not appear to be due to an attack by vandals or malicious hackers, but as a result of a policy decision by the Bush camp.
Not just foreigners – this affects US citizens now abroad too. The folks at boingboing have posted more info and work-arounds. -j
