Russia Refuses To Ban Skype And Gmail Just Because Of Some Silly National Security Threat

Russia has rejected a proposal from within their main domestic security agency that was seeking to ban Skype, Gmail, and Hotmail due to a perception that they are "major threats" to national security.

The proposal came after "cyber attacks on Russia's most popular blogging site and the website of a popular independent newspaper this week."
