Dear Dehqan,

If you do an HTTP request by hand, could you please send this list the result?

1. Open a socket
	nc -v 80
2. paste the following (including one blank line after the text) into nc:

vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv COPY FROM BELOW THIS LINE vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
GET / HTTP/1.0 

vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv UNTIL ABOVE THIS LINE vvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvv

3. send us the results.

I know that the policy says what it says, but previously that was a boilerplate
on most web-sites, for instance...

   "Your are not allowed if you reside in Iran" -- in practice meant nothing
   because the web server wouldn't actually enforce it.

If now things have changed and if Google code effectively is blocking access
from any person, then no code posted on can be Free Software
as in Free Software you can't say that.

If you prove me it's Google who's actively blocking Iran, then I will remove
both omnewrotate and elmdentica from Google Code in protest.

Best regards from a portuguese,
