I would be very surprised if the US government would use the Whitehouse web
domain to "censor" sites, if you recall, the ICANN webservers or the ISP
webservers are a much better way to do this.

I suspect this is another of the urban legends. You may also want to check
whether your mouse pointer was moving over a whitehouse weblink!.

Hope this helps and I would be really interested in reading about any
replies you get from the officials

Yours Sincerely

Please see my email below--are any of you experiencing the same interference
from the White House?
