A popular gay dating app was apparently banned over the weekend, but who ordered the ban and why remains unclear. Grindr users first began noticing that the app wouldn't connect over state-owned mobile networks Thursday. While many could connect again Friday night, some continued having problems as late as Monday evening.One of the more bizarre pieces to the puzzle: Only users trying to access the app through Touch's and Alfa's mobile networks appear to have been affected, meaning frustrated users could simply switch to Wi-Fi to start grinding again.While Grindr did not respond to requests to comment, users who opened the app Monday were greeted with a pop-up message warning them to take extra precautions in case they felt that using the app might put them at risk.
