Iraqi blog hosting service !!! NEW !!! First Ever !!!

Someone sent a link to a new Iraqi blog hosting service. No idea who's behind it - could be anyone. Anyway, it's here, the blog service is run from here, there is a sort of a messagey board thing here, some news feeds, some info... and a bit from the "about Iraq" page...
Iraq enjoys a very important position, as it has been cradle of inspiration miracles and virtues throughout the history of Prophets, Imams, and self denying pious men.
Part of me wants to say yay yay woohoo Iraqi's are doing it for themselves, and part of me is saying hang about - this could be the perfect front for almost any kind of scurrilous activity. Just like blogspot. Which is also a cradle of inspiration miracles and virtues, prophets and self denying pious men.

What do you think? Am still waiting to hear from Haidar, and if he has a blog too.

Implications; new blog spike, might have to start counting again.


UPDATE from Haidar;
Some informations about our blog hosting program:

users can automatically have profesinal blog addresses like http://blog.iraq.ir/username. If they want they can email me and have blog address like http://username.iraq.ir and if they like I can give them UNLIMITED email addresses like name@username.iraq.ir for free, So they can give these email acounts for free to their users. Also users can upload photos directly to their blog. and can have some categories in their blog. ofcoarse our blog hosting has all other regular features that are in other blog hosting services.

I am 26 years old Iraqi guy living in Iran for many years. designing websites and services like this are one of my interests.

Haidar:
I am Iraqi born in baghdad (Kadhmeyya), many of my family are there. Many of Iraqis are living in Iran now and many of Iraqi ministers are from these Iraqis that were living in Iran, So do you still say all these people are not iraqis?!
Or maybe you think all Iraqis that are living out side Iraq are Iraqis expect Those poor Iraqi ppl that living in Iran?

Yes .ir is an iranian domain name . I wonder if site name was iraq.us will u say this site is for USA?

When .iq domain will be realsed I will but another domain name with iq. extenstion
I just found iraq.ir name is short and cool so I bought it .
Iranian government has not anything in this site.
.ir domains are free for selling to all (www.nic.ir) and you can have one of them , So that dont mean that iranian doing these sits.
Anyway if some people in Iraq still think like when saddam was , that is their mistake.

Anyone can chat with me from msn messenger from this email: haidar@iraq.ir

This is a bone fide Iraqi website utilised by both Sunni and Shia Iraqis. It was established to convey historical, cultural and up to date news items to Iraqis and people around the world. It is NOT a political site,but rather a friendship site.
The creator of the site is a proud Iraqi, proud of Iraq's traditions, history and culture.

haidar, i congratulate your enthusiasm, but your repeated posts are going to confuse people into thinking this blogroll is actually being ready by someone. perhaps if a group of people actually held a discussion with multiple views it would be interesting, but osama bin emigre has turned it into her own al qaeda recruiting network.

Repeated posts were result of the blogspot "timeout error", you know that thing blogspot hosting does sometimes. Which incidently would make the possibility of a new blog hosting service an attractive option.

Haidar and Najma make good points each.

I wish you would stop calling me names that aren't mine. As for "multiple views" yes fine, it's your multiple personalities I'm more concerned about.
