And, once again, all this is doing is drawing more interest in the blocked sites. The latest report is that the gov't has demanded that ISPs block hundreds of sites that it doesn't like for whatever reason. Perhaps in blocking so many sites at once, it's hoping that the details of why get lost in the mix, but it hardly seems likely to be all that effective in the long run. While some may compare the situation to China and its Great Firewall, considering the massive bureaucracy that involves tens of thousands of people to manage the Great Firewall, it may be difficult for Thailand to effectively replicate it.
