    It is high time to enforce a “Gaddafi-Style” revolution to get this moronic regime out. Congratulations CT for a job well done.

    I am in SL and have no problem accessing CT. I accessed it over the last couple of days too. Maybe someone got their wireless wires crossed.

    All our purpose to publish something is to reach the mass in SL to bring changes in our country, If this way is blocked, we have to find a diffrent way

    We would like to belong to a democratic multiethnic multireligious and multicultural nation without fear and discrimination.

    This is our right

    CT, you have done a good job!

    Thanks

    CT being blocked is an imagination.The truth is that since lately CT has become the official mouthpiece of the defeated Tamil Tiger Terrorists.Hence apart from hardcore Tiger terrorists,sane people don’t visit your blog anymore.From time to time CT comes out with a set of rules.But those rules don’t apply to the defeated Tamil Tiger terrorists who identify themselves as Sinhalese claiming to be human rights activists,intellectuals,academics etc.It’s a question of attempting to fool all the people all the time.Allegations of CT being blocked is a joke.Sane persons don’t take CT seriously.
    When it suits you, you cry foul.On many occasions CT deleted my posts,claiming that they were not in order.But the Tamil Tiger terror contributors are free to insult the Srilankan president using filth language.After all what else can we expect from terrorists?Diversify views are not tolerated at CT in true Tamil Tiger fashion.But now you cry foul with an imaginary allegation of CT being blocked.Don’t worry you may continue with your circus as long as you like.
    By the way what happened to that “Impartial Observer”who cried blue murder on my comments.It seems that he has vanished in to thin air.CT,whom are you trying to fool?I hope that the so called moderator will not get hot under the collar and decide to do away with my comment.CT,why don’t you identify yourselves as the sole representatives of free media?You have been trying too often to pull the wool over the eyes of others.As a result very few bother to waste time on your blog.As for me i just don’t have the time to waste on your comedy circus.In the meantime you may “smash clay pots in the abandoned hut”as long as you like.
