So, as one of my commenters wondered, where's the Metropolitician? I tried his blog from home and from work-- no dice. Has he been banned? Has he been incarcerated ever since that ugly incident involving the drunk Korean dude (I can no longer link to those blog entries because Metro's blog doesn't appear to be there anymore)?
No Metro? Half-Koreans should be concerned. I do hope all's OK.
For what it's worth, Mike Hurt's other blog, Feet Man Seoul, is still up and running.
UPDATE: Richardson, who's in the US, says the Metro's site is still up. I just did a Unipeak, and sure enough-- I see Mike's site through the proxy. So... is his blog being blocked?
UPDATE 2: A reader named Mark writes in:
[As far as I can tell], all Blogs.com blogs are being blocked at the moment. I have been unable to read my hometown newspaper blog for about a week now.
I almost suspect it is a going away "present" from the MIC... one last "screw you" before dissolving into the great nothing.
Well, good fucking riddance to the MIC.
