Free WiFi at the Jeddah Airport, but Censored (no BoingBoing!)

Got some free WiFi internet access at the airport in Jeddah, but can't get onto BoingBoing because it's blocked by the Saudi censors. I guess the 'Boing is just too much fun... :-(

So here, there's lots of WiFi that is "free as in beer", but not "free as in speech"- the opposite sort of problem from the connection issues we have at home in Canada (unless you're using a Wireless Nomad access point!).
