FT in censored nations?
« on: October 08, 2017, 07:14:22 pm »
I know that there was a thread somewhere about FT in China, but as many of you know there are other nations that censor internet usage some more than others, some for sensible reasons, others not so much. My particular question is about the nation of Iran. Whereas they are not as locked off as the news wants you to believe, they do restrict a number of American web servers mostly with good reasons. What is the status of access to FT in China, Iran, and other nations that choose to censor internet access for any reason (technically including the United States)?

This is an interesting question but unfortunately I don't have an answer. There's no clear method on how to tell if people from these countries can access FT or other furry sites. I personally wouldn't even know how to go about testing that (if it's even at all possible). While it may be interesting to know the information wouldn't serve much of a purpose other than just being interesting so it's definitely not on our priority list. If I remember correctly though we had a member travel to China on a school trip and they were able to access the forums for parts of their trip, I can't say the same would apply to other countries though

I've been to Iran several times and likely will be in the future for family reasons, so I'm concerned for that purpose. I guess I won't know then, till I go there again though. Thank you.
