In Defense of Uruknet - Update!

On January 11, 2011 we made a post titled 'In Defense of Uruknet'. This blog post was made in the hope of getting enough people to sign onto Uruknets group page on Facebook to apply pressure to reinstate Uruknet's profile page, which had been deactivated/revoked by Facebook without notice that day.

Today we are happy to tell you that Facebook has reinstated Uruknet's profile page and has also apologized for the incident!  This happened only because of the many, many of you that retweeted our blogpost, that went to Uruknet's group page and 'liked' it, and because of the many, many, many blogs and daily e-papers that took our story and reposted it! THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH! THIS WAS A HUGE SUCCESS!

Below is a list of some of the blogs that reposted this blog post.  There were too many to list today, but the url to search them out should you want to is
