Blogger in Vietnam

in the weekend edition of Vietnam News I fund an interesting article about blogger in Vietnam.
First the number: 3 million is a lot, even if some are not updated frequently.
Second: the content. People are writing mainly about the feelings, mostly personal experience and thoughts. Why not? There is no rule about a blogs content.
Third a real nice part: so called everymans newspaper especially in certain parts of the world where traditional media is controlled by the government or multinational corporations.
Recently Yahoo shut an vietnamese bloggers account down after several warnings abot offensive and explicit content (he had 2 mio pageviews a day).
At the end of the article, there are some really true words:
"One should build their own firewall to the dark side of the blog"
