Very interesting snippet in an automatically generated email I received from VOA (Voice of America):

2. BLOCKED FROM OUR SITE?

If you are denied access, you can try to enter our site through
a proxy server.

In Iran, try https://isna47shabab87.com (when you see “voanews.com/persian”
change it to “voanews.com/specialenglish”)

I think it’s really neat that although most people are unaware, that we are providing news to Iranians.

BTW, that’s an instruction set for using a Proxy server. Proxies tell the internet you’re one place when you’re really another. I use one here to watch BBC programming online that tells the BBC website that I’m in Wolverhampton, UK 😉

We have also had quite a few Republican operatives post on here over the years using proxies that showed them being in Louisiana but since it’s all traceable, it was easy to call them out as Lamar did more than once.
