: Iranian blogger Steppenwolf, from Tehran, has been silent and today he explains why:
You see, writing in English offers me a dramatically broader audience, while finely endangering me of being accused. Accused of providing the enemy(!) with information. With internal information. Yes, my weblog is anonymous. But then, I don’t even want to jeopardize my peace. I am sure everyone can understand this. There is nothing in it for me being political.
Honestly, the fact is I tend to get excited as soon as my fingers touch the keyboard. I can’t help it. I can’t help my harsh feelings either. So, I prefer to stay silent, stay away from it.
It is hard for those of us who live with the privilege and right of freedom to know what life is like for those who have to worry with every word.
