Tbilisi accuses Russia’s FSS of virtual sabotage2010-10-25 19:03
Reproaching Russia for imperial ambitions Georgia persistently fails to conquer its own. The small but pride country can't resign itself to a humble role in the world arena. It's too insulting to be neglected. Big countries are busy solving their big problems and Georgia wants to get next to them somehow - yet, it won't work. From loneliness the Kid invented Carslon and Georgia makes up fairytales about powerful external foes. All these inventions drive it regularly into a corner.
Today one biased Georgian site features a highly pompous and painfully strained piece of news. As the bell-clanging journalist reports, a few months ago a Russian-language site of Georgian poetry and prose vanished from Internet. The site simply won't open at the old address. As a result Russian fans of Georgian literature are now deprived of the only possibility to find their favorite authors.
Refusing to ascribe this fault to a purely network problem (the domain name was removed for non-payment, the site hosting stopped, clumsy system administrators let the server drop, ecc) the shrewd journalist found unmistakable offenders. As it turns out, gallant Russian security officials tracked down and sawed out the harmless library in order to cut the last ties between great nations.
Certainly, the FSS has nothing else to do but unveil and destroy sprouts of Georgian culture on the Web.
Unsatisfied with disclosing FSS, the journalist went further expressing certitude that Lubyanka officers acted on the tip from the Kremlin referring to the officials as "vandals" and "nationalists" and accusing them of hypocrisy. He compared the vanished site with the Memorial to the Perished in the Great Patriotic War exploded in Kutaisi. It seemed he meant that the memorial was absolutely worthless while destroying the site is a declared war on all what is good, wise and eternal in Georgia.
GeorgiaTimes correspondent decided to carry out an independent journalist investigation and find the missing site or where it has ended up eventually. A call to the FSS was postponed as the last resort. Internet has a vast number of methods to find what's missing.
The story is outrageously banal. For a few years the Georgian prose and poetry site had free hosting on two portals - in turns. But nothing lasts forever, especially free rides. In the end the site had to be moved from both portals: one simply ceased to exist and the other abolished free services.
