WordPress plugin unblocks blocked sites

A new WordPress plugin makes it rather easy to uncensor sites that have been blocked for whatever reason. In just a few clicks you can establish a proxy site using the well-known blogging software.

It could become an essential tool for users in countries that restrict free speech, which is pretty much everywhere to a greater or lesser extent. The plugin would also help defeat implementations of  PIPA or  SOPA  in the US that will, should they pass into law, restrict sites across the globe.

Don’t be fooled, however, the very same plugin might also be used, perish the thought, to let people in The Netherlands, Italy, Finland and elsewhere access The Pirate Bay even if their ISPs are blocking it.
