The Iranian government has shut down the access to YouTube, continuing their policy of strong censorship of, well, everything they don't like

Iranians who tried to access YouTube in the past couple of days were able only to read this message: "On the basis of the Islamic Republic of Iran laws, access to this Web site is not authorized".

It is uncertain whether the Iranian Shiite government decided to do this because of sexual content, Iranian pop video which are sometimes posted on YouTube, videos by the groups that oppose Iranian authorities, or a combination of all the above.

In any case, Iran is on a good way to become the country with the strongest censorship, its main competitors being North Korea, China, Syria, Cuba, and a few others.
