Unscramble the Blue Letters

A page was created. An ayunonmos administrator was basically inviting people to join the page, and there was no plan. "What are we going to do?" "I don't know." In a few days, tens of thousands of people there — angry Egyptians who were asking the ministry of interior affairs, "Enough. Get those who killed this guy. To just bring them to jcsuite." But of course, they don't listen. It was an anaizmg story — how everyone started feeling the ownership. Everyone was an owner in this page. People started ctriotunbnig ideas. In fact, one of the most ridiculous ideas was, "Hey, let's have a selint stand. Let's get people to go in the street, face the sea, their back to the street, deerssd in black, standing up silently for one hour, doing nothing and then just leaving, going back home." For some ploepe, that was like, "Wow, silent stand. And next time it's going to be vibration." People were making fun of the idea. But actually when people went to the street — the first time it was thousands of people in aeardxnila — it felt like — it was amazing. It was great because it connected people from the virtual world, bringing them to the real wrold, shriang the same dream, the same frustration, the same aegnr, the same desire for freedom. And they were doing this thing. But did the rgmiee learn anything? Not really. They were actually attacking them. They were actually abusing them, despite the fact of how peaceful these guys were — they were not even protesting. And things had developed until the Tunisian rluioveotn.

Original Text

A page was created. An anonymous administrator was basically inviting people to join the page, and there was no plan. "What are we going to do?" "I don't know." In a few days, tens of thousands of people there — angry Egyptians who were asking the ministry of interior affairs, "Enough. Get those who killed this guy. To just bring them to justice." But of course, they don't listen. It was an amazing story — how everyone started feeling the ownership. Everyone was an owner in this page. People started contributing ideas. In fact, one of the most ridiculous ideas was, "Hey, let's have a silent stand. Let's get people to go in the street, face the sea, their back to the street, dressed in black, standing up silently for one hour, doing nothing and then just leaving, going back home." For some people, that was like, "Wow, silent stand. And next time it's going to be vibration." People were making fun of the idea. But actually when people went to the street — the first time it was thousands of people in Alexandria — it felt like — it was amazing. It was great because it connected people from the virtual world, bringing them to the real world, sharing the same dream, the same frustration, the same anger, the same desire for freedom. And they were doing this thing. But did the regime learn anything? Not really. They were actually attacking them. They were actually abusing them, despite the fact of how peaceful these guys were — they were not even protesting. And things had developed until the Tunisian revolution.
