    Proxy servers drive probe to dead end

    Interesting story about how proxy servers in multiple jurisdictions frustrate enforcement of India's repressive censorship laws.

    But an interesting issue not covered in the story is how US and EU based companies treat information requests from India.

    India is well known for using torture against suspects a fact recognized several times by the European Court of Human Rights.

    Fortunately it seems that the 'criminals' got away.

    The takeaway from this story is that if you don't want to be tortured, use a proxy server.

    What's bizarre here is how a Facebook post (as offensive as it may have been) could have led to rioting.
