Army shutting down blogging?

Interesting news on military bloggers from boingboing today.

Blogging (IMHO) is just another form of communication or expression. Shutting down bloggers seems like an impossible task. It's like saying no one in the military can use email.

I look back to how communication has changed over the past 15 years. I personally served in the Army during Operation Desert Storm back in 1991 and communication between people in the field and the family/friends back home was vastly different. Mail call was the highlight of the day when we would get a physical letter or package of brownies - there was no email. And an occasional 5 minute phone call was a special treat. It would be a shame to shutdown down such a great communication medium.
