Yahoo mail, the most prominent email provider among Iranians, has removed Iran from its sign up page’s country list recently.
This has led to an outcry among many Iranians who thinks that Yahoo has made the decision due to the Iranian government and has ignored millions of Iranians. Meanwhile, people of Iran whom even suffer from their own government in virtual society consider this decision as unjust and bigoted.
Iran blog community which is among the world’s top lists of active blog communities is facing strict governmental crackdowns amid growing online access and the huge popularity of bloggers.
Despite the government restrictions and controls, Farsi is listed by Technorati in the 10 top languages on the net. Iran has near a million bloggers, among them around ten percent are active.
Meanwhile, Yahoo discriminates Iranians by taking the decision to omit Iran from its sign up country list and misjudging the people of the country because of political issues.
As for the decision, people of Iran ask Yahoo mail respectfully to add Iran to the list once again and reconsider this for millions of Iranian, not for the government.
Iran is a country with 7000 years of glorious, rich heritage and extensive history, a land in which lots of great artists, scientists and distinguished individuals have been flourished throughout the ages.
