A traditional filtering act of Iranian officials harmed Xoopsers also. Yesterday, Aug 8th, 2005, Internet Service Providers in Iran were orderd to filter SourceForge.Net Preventing Persian users to download Xoops. The reason behind this act is unclear. SourceForge.net, the biggest Open Source website, has been hosting the Xoops and many other programs for years and its censorship may cause trouble for open Source Projects' users.
Hopefully this website will be removed from the Iranian Internet blocklist and the ones who had problems downloading such a great and free program will get their right to do so.
