If you're in a muslim country (like I am), especially one which has laws which can get you in trouble if your apostasy can be found out, its best that you don't access this forum directly.
Instead, you should do a google search for 'free ssl proxy', and pick from one of the many proxies which are available, and use that to access this forum.
The advantage of using an SSL proxy is that all data being transfered between you and the proxy is encrypted, which means your ISP/government would not be able to see the data which is being sent/received, and will not be able to see the posts you make, etc.
To know if you're using an SSL proxy or a regular one, check if you're visiting 'http://your-proxy.com
' or 'https
://your-proxy.com'. The 's' in the https:// means 'secure' and indicates that you're using a secure, SSL proxy.
Hope this helps and saves someone's head
