Taboo Websites?

I was wondering which georgian Websites could be potentially tabooed in georgian society and found only three. There are 3 reasons why I found only three : 1. I searched in Georgian net badly 2. Georgian society is very tolerant 3. Georgian net is very poor with good or bad websites in general. I have such a feeling that the last reason is the closest to truth...

There are at least 2 themes in georgian society that almost nobody wants to discuss and make opinion on them publicly: religion and sex. Websites that i found are directly connected to both of these themes.

1. often criticizes official georgian orthodox church and takes tolerant position to other religious denominations in Georgia.

2. this website focuses on sexual minorities in Georgia and advocates their rights.

3. is only in English and one might think, that it's not georgian website, but counters that are on this site makes me suggest, that this site is for small, but still for georgian audience.

If you know other websites please write them in comments.

Georgian soldiers in Iraq

I found first (i guess) georgian soldier's blog. He is based in Iraq and has some interesting photos, along with his commentaries, about his life in Iraq(though most of them are in georgian).

Currently 850 Georgian troops are deployed in the cities of Iraq (Baghdad and Baqubah), making Georgia one of the top contributors to the U.S.-led coalition on a per capita basis. As for Afghanistan, 150 soldiers are stationed there contributing to the NATO-led operation. Georgia is to increase its military contingent in Iraq to 2,000 troops and in Afghanistan 100 more Georgian troops will be sent.
