Web censorship in Thailand

Thai means free, i.e. free people. Paradoxically, there is some ongoing web censorship in Thailand which limits the freedom of (some) Thai to obtain some news and express opinions. That act by Thailand 's bureaucrats has started to annoy a number of educated Thai and they express in newspapers.

While the current temporary government is in officice, new constitution is drafted, political uncertainties still exist, perhaps it is still tolerable for them this year. But I have a feeling that if the censorship still goes on like until after the new constitution is approved then more people will come out more vocally against it. I think banning web access arbitrarily by some idiots without good reasons, and without court order is against our freedom and our 'Thainess'.
