Welcome @marisa! Excited to have you here. If you have any questions about this weird place here feel free to ask!

Was just reading about Nasty Nets and tried to click on a link on rhizome.org and saw that rhizome is blocked here in the #UAE

@wakest Thanks! Just confirming -- Are you sure it's all of Rhizome.org that's blocked in UAE or maybe just the Rhizome archive of Nasty Nets? The title alone & some of the content tends to scare some filters... I once couldn't even open it during a public talk in Spain! But that would be interesting/sad news re: Rhizome...

@marisa I checked again right after I posted this and your right its just Nasty thats blocked. They must just be doing keyword filtering! You could probably get around it by writing it with some funny unicode like ⁿᵃˢᵗʸ ⁿᵉᵗˢ!
