Tehran blogger Ara e-mails to explain the vagaries of web surfing in Iran.

He writes:

"The list of forbidden sites varies from ISP to ISP, so my ISP, ParsOnline (the biggest ISP in Iran), doesn't block Hoder's site at all currently while other ISPs do.

"I believe it's because of parallel intelligence services in Iran. They are not in sync with each other at all. There's no legally organized list of banned sites, yet if an ISP does not block a site that someone from the various intelligence communities told them to block then that ISP is in serious trouble."
