New poster.

I got to them-- told them what's going on. Seems like they're getting about a dozen of them a minute. It's not good for them. The only thing we can do is keep sending them this.

Effing retarded. Putting people in risk.

GUYS, DON'T DO THE DDOS ATTACKS. It is not helping the people who are trying to get messages OUT from Iran.

All those people protesting in Iran- they're people like me. They're my age, they log onto the internet and look at stupid photos of cats. And then they go outside and get beaten by the police for showing too much hair. I saw a photo of a girl cowering from a police officer wearing the same trainers as me. They shouldn't have to go out on the streets to get their freedom.

Some pictures, if you can't read farsi, just click on any picture and you get directed to a gallery. Some I haven't seen yet. A really good persian news site is www.gooya.com; it's one of the largest iranian new directories on the internet.

CNN just mentioned the outpouring of "stop using names" again and said "Of course we're going to do that, we're not here to endanger people"

I wish I got BBC America

BB. Would it be alright if I used your fingers and stuck them on my icon? That sounded so creepy.?

Oh God it looks like it could be a setup from the government to get IPs/proxies.

THANK YOU, ONTD_P, for covering this situation so well! Seriously. Between the idiocy that's most news stations and me not knowing what other sources to trust, everything that's posted here has been really informative and eye-opening.

Sigh. I feel terrible because the people I talk to IRL either don't know what's going on in Iran or aren't choosing to say anything about it. Not sure which is worse....
