    No, this is the death of JVP and UNP

    Why not just change the Host Provider? In this case SLT! Looks like their Firewalls are out of date!

    For 2 days I couldn't open the DM website from San Francisco, California, USA. Even now, I had to type dailymirror.lk twice and hit enter to connect to the site. There is something going on to block the site ... I wonder why? Is this the Death of Sri Lanka's Democracy?

    So, we are nicely experiencing "Media Freedom"? Please don't let this happen. People have a right to know what's happening in this country!

    deyyiya Tuesday, 07 September 2010 08:29 PM

    Perhaps because DM carries the truth?

    Michelle Wednesday, 08 September 2010 06:25 AM

    I checked the website a couple of days ago in the morning and it was blocked.....

    KG Tuesday, 07 September 2010 09:09 PM

    I had difficulty in accessing the Daily Mirror from Australia, on several days.

    Sarath Tuesday, 07 September 2010 09:19 PM

    Yes, the Daily Mirror cannot be accessed through the Infolanka News site, as I have been doing for many years now. It has been blocked for three days now. But, I can go through Google and access the site.

    Hi, I had problems with the DM website a couple of days ago. I thought that it was very strange. It seems to be working OK right now. I am writing to you from Melbourne, Australia.

    kalumnsu Tuesday, 07 September 2010 10:27 PM

    I couldn't access the website for 2 to 4 days, but now it's OK.

    Sid Tuesday, 07 September 2010 10:44 PM

    I live in Melbourne and DM was not available for 3-4 days. Hopefully things have been sorted-out now!

    Smart Aleck Tuesday, 07 September 2010 11:35 PM

    From today, we will be in the company of countries like Myanmar and Zimbabwe!

    anthony jones Wednesday, 08 September 2010 12:59 AM

    This is true! I could get in, only by doing a Google search!

    The tru Lankan Wednesday, 08 September 2010 01:14 AM

    Yes, it was down for a few days! Who could be the "element" and what's the purpose?

    saman Tuesday, 07 September 2010 01:51 PM

    this is true the web site was not available around 6.30 pm

    steve Tuesday, 07 September 2010 01:59 PM

    who are these elements?

    Eranga Tuesday, 07 September 2010 02:04 PM

    Is this the so called media freedom the gov is exaggerating all the time?

    Anushka Tuesday, 07 September 2010 02:18 PM

    "Foreign element", wonder who that might be? An individual with nothing better to do or something more sinister?

    wellwisher Tuesday, 07 September 2010 02:23 PM

    I also couldnt view DM for several days.Now I understand what is the reason.

    polkiccha Tuesday, 07 September 2010 02:29 PM

    Shankar Tuesday, 07 September 2010 02:48 PM

    Yes this is true. I live in UK and am having problems opening the site for the last week.

    I hope this will get sorted out since I enjoy reading the Daily Mirror.

    Babanis Tuesday, 07 September 2010 02:49 PM

    Well I new the talk about the virus was a bit fishy. It was a difficult buy. Need further investigation as we need net neutrality.

    Kumara Wednesday, 08 September 2010 04:20 AM

    Serene Thanuja Wednesday, 08 September 2010 04:27 AM
