"rapped over the knuckles"

Got the following email from my online friend, Sue:
You are...semi-famous

Did you know that there was a bit of analysis about you in a scholarly article published in Middle East Journal: Vol. 59 No. 1, summer 2005. Called Democratic Development in Oman, by Jeremy Jones and Nicholas Ridout?

It implies that you were metaphorically 'rapped over the knuckles' for writing in your blog about the leanings of those arrested early this year. Seems you didn't behave in the gentlemanly way expected within Omani society, which doesn't choose to defame people in public.

Bet you really wanted to know that, didn't you?
I checked the Middle East Institute's website, the article isn't available online so I can't read it myself. Dunno where the authors got their information from. It was self-censorship on my part. I chose to distance myself from the events and not write anything more about it, especially after the events in Bahrain and the arrest of Oman's leading human rights activist earlier this summer.

Would love to get my hand on the article though if anyone has it in PDF or maybe even a scan.

Update: thanks to The Emirates Economist for emailing me a PDF of the article. It's 17 pages long, I'll try to read it tomorrow.
