Persian blogs or Iranian blogs[edit]

We are talking here about blogs from Iran They could be in Persian, English, kurdi, or any other language.That's why the title of the page couldn't be Persian blogs. --Hoder 23:12, 6 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Too many media links[edit]

It's nice that the article has an extensive collection of news about Iranian blogs, but it should be trimmed and interesting content incorporated into this article. We can't rely on linked sites to tell the story, we must do it in encyclopedia itself. Paranoid 10:08, 10 Jan 2005 (UTC)

I agree. But I've always thought we sould keep a bibliography of the subject too. And why not here? --Hoder 20:59, 12 Jan 2005 (UTC)

I would suggest removing the blog links out of the media links and keeping 5-7 links at the most, afterall this is not an archive of links. I trust BBC, CS Monitor, CNN will tell the story correctly no need to repeat it multiple times. Perhapse another sub-section regarding politcal arrests of iranian bloggers is needed ?

30% of all blogs are persian? hard to believe[edit]

As of today (17 April 2005) http://www.blogcensus.net/?page=lang claims 64,049 farsi blogs of a total of 2,108,226. IMHO someone just forgot a factor of 10: about 3% of blogs are farsi, not 30%. English blogs are 1,286,508 i.e. a bit over 50%. i'll correct this now before the error spreads too far... In South Asian terminology, this is 0.6 lakh farsi blogs out of 20 lakh blogs total...

updating numbers[edit]

Removing old link - NITLE doesn't seem to be very up-to-date - 65,000 active weblogs

Newer links:

removed stopahmadinejad blog[edit]

This is about blogs made by Iranians, not blogs made by Americans about Ahmadinejad. I don't think that Alexander Sienkiewicz, who registered the blog and lives in San Luis Obispo, California, is an Iranian.

Living people concern[edit]

Beyond the obvious normal WP:BLP concerns with publicizing people's names, we need to be extra careful given the legal environment in Iran. Either way, I've started to remove all names here until we get reliable sources. -- Ricky81682 (talk) 01:32, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

700,000?[edit]

Hey, Just popping in here. I'm doing some research, and I'm not finding any hard evidence for this number. I must admit I can't read Farsi, but I'm not seeing any credible, peer-reviewed research that even remotely touches this number. Yes, the older number, from the rather authoritative Technorati of 60,000 is responsible. We should err on the side of out of date and realistic rather than current and highly speculative, without any sort of real citation. I'm very surprised this exists, and would usually not even post on a discussion page, but this is just super egregious. --DGaffney (talk) 03:10, 12 November 2009 (UTC)

"Extremist source"[edit]

I undid the deletion of Peder Jensen's paper Just because he was a blogger who is considered extremist by many doesn't make his academic paper an "extremist source". The paper was accepted by the university as a masters paper. So it must not have been with extremist content. If something is written by an "extremist" it does not follow that the content necessarily is extremist of nature. BTW extremist is a subjective label. Many academics have views which could be viewed as extremist (e.g. Marxism) but their papers are acceptable as a source on WP. SpeakFree (talk) 13:04, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
