We've been getting a lot of emails from Srilanka based readers regarding difficulties in accessing Tamilnet.com. Tamilnet.com is a pro LTTE web site which acts as the official mouthpiece of the tigers on the web.
We are not able to determine the reason why Srilankan users are unable to access Tamilnet. But here is a workaround to access Tamilnet if you are from Srilanka.
1. Open your web browser and log into any of the following web sites.
2. Type http://www.tamilnet.com in the 'URL to browse' field.
3. Press the 'Begin Browsing' button and web page should load.
(A big thank goes to our friends at the FILEnetworks Blog for the support.)
Even though it is a well known fact that Tamilnet.com is a highly biased (pro LTTE) web site which has published many entirely false articles, there are people who read it. We hope this post was helpful to all such readers.
