Lebanon's Telecommunications Ministry has banned the popular gay dating app Grindr, The Daily Star has learned. The ban, disseminated to internet providers in a memo, orders ISPs to block access to grindr.com and an associated IP address -- blocking functionality of the app as well as the web service.Smex, a digital rights group, said it tested the app's functionality Monday and found it was blocked on Ogero but not on some other internet providers.Once the ban is fully implemented, it is set to affect all internet providers -- and therefore all Grindr users -- in Lebanon.
